The post-holder will contribute to two externally funded projects which both aim to investigate socioeconomic differentials in health and health-related behaviours. The first is a CLOSER (Cohort & Longitudinal Studies Enhancement Resources) work package on socioeconomic differentials in physical activity across life. Physical activity has a myriad of health benefits yet a substantial proportion of the world?s population are inactive, particularly socioeconomically disadvantaged groups. There is a pressing need to better understand these inequalities. Coordinated analyses of physical activity data from the CLOSER studies, which will be undertaken by the appointed researcher, provide a unique opportunity to do this across the life course in a UK setting. Since physical activity data have not yet been collated, this project will also involve working with cohort investigators to identify all measures of physical activity and sedentary behaviour available within each study, to produce guidance documentation and harmonised datasets. The second project, funded by the Academy of Medical Sciences, aims to conduct cross-cohort research to examine how health inequalities have changed across time in the UK, building on existing work. The post holder will be expected to collate data and create data documentation suitable for a general audience and will be expected to lead in the development of analysis plans and undertake statisitical analyses in line with the main aims of the two projects. The post is available from 01/05/2018 and is funded until 31/12/2019 in the first instance. Key Requirements The post holder will have a PhD or equivalent experience in a relevant discipline such as epidemiology, statistics or quantitative social science and will have experience of handling complex and large-scale data set. Excellent IT skills, including the ability to use bibliographic software such as EndNote and relevant statisitical packages (e.g. STATA) is essential. For appointment as a Senior Research Associate, evidence of completed research which has been published as well as a suitable publication record is essential.
