Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Job description

Faculty of Health and Life Sciences

This UKPRP funded post is available full-time from 1st October 2022 for 4 years.

The post

The College wishes to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to undertake evaluation and research as part of an exciting programme of work called ‘Kailo'. This UKPRP funded post is available full time from 1st October 2022 for 4 years. This Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is a full-time role and is not appropriate for job-share. The successful applicant will coordinate the delivery of the evaluation work packages of the Kailo programme alongside partners, overseeing development of the work programme and associated governance and budgets, engagement with key stakeholders, and creating enabling conditions for high quality engaged research to take place.

Kailo:

The UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP) is investing £19million over five years in three consortia to target social, economic and environmental factors affecting health. UKPRP is a group of 12 funders who have come together to fund projects about non-communicable disease, such as poor mental health, obesity and cancer, via multidisciplinary projects. The ‘Kailo' programme aims to improve adolescent mental health by taking a radically different approach to prevention and early intervention working alongside communities. The consortium is led by Professor Peter Fonagy at University College London (UCL) and involves partners at the University of Exeter, Dartington Service Design Lab, the Anna Freud Centre, Redthread and Shift. The evaluation of the Kailo framework will be co-led by academics at the University of Exeter and UCL and this post will work with Dr Vashti Berry and partners to deliver the research.
