We are recruiting a Research Impact Assistant to support and drive forward the impact from the Goodbye Breasts! research project.

Goodbye Breasts! is a creative, transdisciplinary, collaborative autoethnographic project that explores breast cancer, faulty genes and the role of creativity in health and well-being. It is led by Professor of Filmmaking Joanna Callaghan and arises out of her personal experience of the issues. The project seeks to challenge medical monopolies and entrenched narratives on how we deal with illness and recover from it and is supported by a large range of medical and academic partners, arts funders, charities and patient groups. The outputs include a feature documentary, a touring installation and a digital campaign.

This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring researcher to become involved in one of the School’s active research projects, particularly in relation to enabling impactful outcomes. You will be supporting activities that engage non-academic organisations and groups with research. The outcomes from these interventions are the project’s ‘impact' which are measured as having an ‘effect on, change or benefit …[to] the economy, society, culture, public policy or services, health, the environment or quality of life, beyond academia’ (REF 2021). Through your role, you will develop relevant skills in the delivery and evaluation of impactful engagement and communications activity, which are becoming increasingly important for future researchers.

The role would suit someone who is currently studying for - or has recently completed - a PhD, and who has a strong interest in research engagement and impact.

This post is funded by the AHRC Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) at the University of Sussex.

Please contact the PI (Professor Joanna Callaghan, j.callaghan@sussex.ac.uk) and Katherine Blackadder (k.blackadder@sussex.ac.uk) for informal enquiries.
