This position is an excellent opportunity for a health or social researcher with expertise in, or affinity with, public health to be involved in public health research within a leading public health department. The post will involve working with Professor Rona Campbell and other members of the Centre for Public Health on programmes of research concerned with setting up a school health research network in South West England, multiple risk behaviour and sex and relationships education in schools.
The Centre for Public Health hosts Bristol’s membership of The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Public Health Research (SPHR) which undertakes research into public health with an emphasis on what works practically and meets the needs of policy makers, practitioners and the public. The NIHR SPHR has strong links with local public health practice in the NHS and Local Authorities in Bristol and the West of England. The Centre also hosts the new NIHR Bristol and Cardiff Public Health Intervention Research Studies team which works with Local Authorities and third sector organisations to evaluate novel public health interventions.
