Applications are invited from candidates with an outstanding programme of empirical research in social or psychosocial intervention or policy evaluation research, with a focus on testing the effectiveness of interventions and policies to tackle social or psychosocial problems.

The appointee will be expected to engage in independent research, as well as contributing to teaching, supervision and examining at graduate level in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. The post holder will be part of a lively and intellectually stimulating multi-disciplinary research community within the department as well as actively participating in the life of the college.
