Brighton and Sussex Medical School is looking to recruit a Research Fellow/Trial Manager to co-ordinate an exciting new project focused on public health intervention for young women who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) living in coastal areas in the UK. The project aims to explore the feasibility, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of a hope- focused intervention. The intervention is based on the principles of hope theory and combines strengths-spotting, goal-setting, and creative arts elements. The intervention is designed to be supported using a novel youth- initiated mentor approach. The project will involve working with local and unitary authority and charity partners to identify these young women and involve them in the trial. The project has a geographic focus on deprived coastal regions in southern and eastern England. The trial involves a mixed- methods process evaluation.

The successful candidate should have, or be near to completing, a PhD in a relevant discipline (such as Psychology, Social Sciences, Health Sciences, Epidemiology) and/or equivalent experience of managing large and complex health or educational research projects. The successful candidate will require excellent communication and presentation skills, together with the ability to organise and motivate others. They will demonstrate flair, enthusiasm, innovation, and leadership when faced with challenges. They will provide strategic, tactical, and operational management skills in the planning and execution of the project. The successful candidate will understand the importance of upholding the scientific integrity of the randomised controlled trial approach. They candidate will have experience in quantitative and qualitative research methods.

The role is to be contracted for 14 months in the first instance as this covers the feasibility phase of the project. Assuming feasibility, the role would be extended for another 2.5 to 3.5 years. Job-share can be considered. A proportion of remote working can be considered.
