Job description:

The Role

Applications are invited for an enthusiastic and highly motivated researcher sought to work on a research project evaluating the effectiveness and acceptability of interventions to address gambling-related harms across primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention. The evaluation, led by researchers from the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration, will comprise a high-quality implementation and process evaluation, to understand the activity and reach of the programme of work to address gambling-related harms across the region. It is envisaged that scope of the evaluation will primarily draw on qualitative methods.

Key stakeholder interviews with project partners across the region will be undertaken alongside an analysis of how the regional plan is operationalised, the routes of referral, the effectiveness of treatment, impact on inequalities, the profile of service users and the resource implications of delivering the programme. The evaluation will also comprise in-depth conversations among people with a lived experience of harmful gambling.

You will need to work to tight deadlines and be extremely organised. The ability to communicate with a range of stakeholders is essential. The successful candidate should have an in-depth understanding of qualitative/mixed methods.

The programme of work is delivered by colleagues at Middleborough Council, and will be rolled out across the North East region. The postholder must be willing to travel both to Middleborough Council and across the region for events/interviews as required for the evaluation.

This is a full time post (37 hour per week), fixed term until 31 August 2026.

Candidates should tailor their application according to the level of post they are applying for; an MSc in a relevant field is essential at Assistant level, a PhD is required for appointment at Associate level.

Further information can be obtained by contacting Professor Eileen Kaner (eileen.kaner@newcastle.ac.uk) or Dr Katie Thomson (katie.thomson@newcastle.ac.uk)
