We are seeking to appoint a research assistant to provide research management and administrative support as well as to provide Personal Assistant services for the Professor of General Practice.
The programmes of research are applied and multidisciplinary and involve close collaborations with groups in the Primary Care Unit and the MRC Epidemiology Unit. We use a range of approaches, including systematic reviews and qualitative methods, but have generated knowledge and informed policy mainly through the translation of evidence from aetiological epidemiology and other disciplines, in particular psychology, into the development and subsequent trial evaluation of behavioural, pharmacological, organisational and policy interventions. The main topic areas include prevention, early detection and management of type 2 diabetes, the determinants and promotion of physical activity, and the interaction between patients and practitioners.
The successful candidate will be a flexible team player with excellent communications skills and have good organisation skills. They will be able to prioritise their own workload and work to tight deadlines. Excellent computer skills are essential. Applicants should have a first degree and some research experience is desirable.
