Blue health job at ECEHH

The Horizons 2020 funded BlueHealth team are recruiting for a Postdoctoral Research Associate, fixed term full time post based in Truro, Cornwall until 30 June 2020.


The BlueHealth project is concerned with improving our understanding of how interacting with the sea, coast and inland waters (lakes/rivers) can help promote public health (while recognising the many risks and threats). Among other things the project is collecting survey data across 18 countries and conducting evaluations of several water-based urban infrastructure projects (e.g. coastal access improvements) to explore potential public health benefits.

The primary roles for this new post will be to support the current team: a) analyse, synthesise and publish the rich body of data we have already gathered; b) create impact by engaging with different audiences from policy makers, businesses and the general public.

Applicants must be qualified to PhD (or nearing completion) or equivalent qualifications/experience in epidemiology,statistics, psychology, or a closely related discipline, and be able to demonstrate a strong potential for research leadership with a track record in refereed publications and involvement in submitting successful grant applications.
