Brighton and Sussex Medical School is looking to recruit a Research Assistant to support 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 a relevant degree and/or equivalent experience, for example gained in working on large and/or complex health or education research projects. The successful candidate will require good communication and presentation skills, together with the ability to organise themselves and work to targets. The successful candidate will have some understanding of the randomised controlled trial approach. The candidate should have personal experience of supporting vulnerable young people and/or professional experience of working with this group in a research, clinical, or support capacity.

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.
