The Post

The Faculty of Health Sciences and Sport  (University of Stirling) in partnership with Paths for All is seeking to appoint a Knowledge Transfer Associate as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project. This exciting opportunity is for a person interested in working with adolescents to improve adolescent health and wellbeing through physical activity/walking using digital technology on the project T3: Teens, Tech, and Trails. The person employed in this role will have an academic supervisor (Dr Simone Tomaz, University of Stirling) and will be line-managed by Carl Greenwood (Paths for All). Dr Sam Fawkner (University of Edinburgh) and Prof Trish Gorely (University of the Highlands and Islands) are the supporting academics for the project.

In line with Paths for All’s mission to support people in Scotland to be active every day through walking, the aim of this project is to extend the demographic reach of the company’s delivery programmes by co-creating and piloting a new digital walking challenge incentive (e.g., a Young People’s Step Count Challenge) to support young people’s physical health, mental health, and social wellbeing. To do this, we are looking for an associate who is able to develop an excellent working relationship with young people aged 11-17y, teachers, the current Paths for All web developer, and existing invested Paths for All partners, whilst also seeking new collaborators with vested interest in young people’s physical activity and wellbeing.

Description of Duties

It is envisioned that the associate will use the latest thinking in behaviour change theory to develop a thorough understanding of how digital devices and platforms can support the promotion of physical activity and reduction of sedentary behaviour in young people. Additionally, the post will require some experience or knowledge of using co-production methods with young people and teachers. As the project progresses, the associate will be expected to collate, present and review project progress and be able to deliver this information to a variety of audiences, including young people and the Paths for All organisation.

Essential Criteria

  • Postgraduate degree in physical activity for health, associated discipline, or relevant subject area to the project.
  • Eligibility to work with YP/vulnerable groups (PVG certificate, or the ability to obtain one).
  • Experience of working with children/young people in a context that involves physical activity, or digital technology and/or in schools generally.
