We are looking to appoint a Research Assistant to play a key role in developing and delivering Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) for a new Addictions Policy Research Unit (PRU) commissioned by the Government Department of Health and Social Care for England. The PRU is a collaboration involving a range of UK universities and its aim is to inform policymaking regarding addiction-related behaviours, products, and systems. The PRU’s remit includes alcohol, tobacco and nicotine, other drugs, and gambling. Research conducted within the PRU will draw on quantitative and qualitative methods from different disciplinary perspectives and be underpinned by PPIE at every stage and level. This is the first of several roles that the Addictions PRU will be advertising over the next few weeks.
The person appointed will be based in the Addictions Department at King’s College London (KCL), will report to Professor Joanne Neale (PPIE lead for the PRU), and be accountable to the PRU’s directors and management team. The appointee will work closely with Mr Paul Lennon (deputy PPIE lead) and be central to the PRU’s PPIE activities. To this end, they will collaborate with academics and experts by experience associated with a range of universities, PPIE panels, and organisations across the UK.
