Job Purpose

You will contribute to a project on healthy ageing among older adults in the UK, undertaking research with and in deprived communities to design interventions to promote physical activity and social connectedness. The project includes the collection and analysis of social network data, and the analysis of secondary survey data (e.g., English Longitudinal Study of Ageing). The job requires strong quantitative and data management skills, including cleaning and analysing social network data, as well as carrying out statistical analyses, such as regression techniques and multilevel modelling. Experience working with longitudinal datasets would be beneficial.
You will be based in the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, working with Principal Investigators Dr Emily Long and Professor Sharon Simpson, in addition to colleagues across the ‘Relationships’, ‘Complexity’, ‘Inequalities’ and ‘Places’ programmes. The successful candidate will gain experience working in an inter-disciplinary team, contribute to data collection and analysis, and the formulation and submission of research publications.
