An exciting opportunity has arisen for the appointment of a Lecturer in Early Life Epidemiology, a newly created post within the recently established Mohn Centre for Children’s Health & Wellbeing at Imperial College London.
The Mohn Centre has been established following a £25M gift from Marit Mohn to establish a world-leading centre for children’s health and wellbeing in the School of Public Health. The mission of the Mohn Centre is to be an international resource and centre of excellence for research and capacity building in the field of children’s mental and physical health in urban environments, and the translation of this knowledge to advise national and international policies to improve life-long health.
The Mohn Centre draws together expertise from across Imperial College London (e.g. Environmental Epidemiology, Public Health, Paediatrics, Neonatal Medicine, Infectious Disease, Psychiatry, Bioinformatics, Artificial Intelligence, Toxicology, Computational and Systems Medicine) to pursue research and education on the understanding and prevention of children’s health issues. As early-life experiences affect life-long health the Centre’s research will unpick the complex network of interactions between genetic and environmental factors to address important childhood physical and mental health challenges and current health inequalities.
Key to the success of the Centre will be to promote effective cross-disciplinary collaborations with academic, government, industry, and voluntary sector partners as well as engaging local communities to ensure lifelong improvements in health and well-being. Led by Professor Mireille Toledano, Mohn Chair in Population Child Health and Director of the Mohn Centre, the Centre will work closely with the White City community to address local issues and challenges, but the benefit will be felt across West London, the UK and internationally.
The successful candidate will play a key role in developing this research programme. The post holder will utilise health and environmental datasets within the MRC Centre for Environment and Health (http://www.environment-health.ac.uk/), and also work with partners to build appropriate, effective and relevant child and lay partner involvement into the research programme throughout the research cycle. The post offers an outstanding opportunity to establish this research Centre which is of key importance to the School’s strategic direction.
Duties and responsibilities
This is a full-time and open-ended role, based at the White City campus.
