MRC Postdoctoral Fellow in Young People’s Activity Behaviour

The MRC Epidemiology Unit is seeking to appoint a MRC Postdoctoral Fellow (training role) in Young People’s Physical Activity Behaviour. We are looking for a researcher with good quantitative skills to interrogate large-scale data sets to study young people’s activity behaviour.

This is a three-year fixed-term position based in the Unit’s Behavioural Epidemiology Programme (Lead: Dr Esther van Sluijs), working closely with other groups in the Unit, the University and external collaborators. The primary role of this post is to inform intervention development through the study of levels, patterning, change, and determinants of activity behaviours in young people using large scale observational datasets such as the International Children’s Accelerometry Database (ICAD). The post holder will identify research questions, conduct statistical analyses and lead on dissemination.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 3 July 2018 and interviews are likely to be held on Monday 23 July 2018.
