Research Assistant/Associate: 049068

Reference Number: 049068
Grade: 6/7
Funding: Until 1st May 2023
Closing date: 8th March 2021

Job Purpose

Based in the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow. As a successful candidate you will contribute to the project 'Better Parks, Healthier for All'. This project will make a systematic, longitudinal assessment of associations between a range of green space qualities and risk factors for/measures of cardiometabolic disease and poor mental health. This is a joint UK-Australia project, led in the UK by Prof Rich Mitchell and in Australia by Prof Xiaoqi Feng. Whilst the state and third sectors in both countries have blueprints for what to capture in measuring green space qualities, there are no spatially comprehensive validated secondary measures of quality available. This post is particularly focused on the co-production of measures of urban green space qualities for 4 cities in Scotland and Australia, using secondary map data, remote imagery including Google Earth and Lidar, and secondary crowd-sourced biodiversity measures.

The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project as opportunities allow.
