Duties and Responsibilities
An opening exists for an experienced and enthusiastic researcher to work on an exciting new Wellcome-funded collaborative award ‘Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability and Health (CUSSH)’. The CUSSH Consortium is led by University College London and consists of 12 other UK and overseas research partners. This post will lead the behavioural science input to this multidisciplinary project. The aim of CUSSH is to develop critical evidence on how to achieve the far-reaching transformation of cities needed to address vital environmental imperatives for population and planetary health in the 21st century. The project will use cutting-edge science and systems-based participatory methods to articulate visions of development, help shape policy decisions, and accelerate the implementation of transformational changes for health and sustainability in low, middle and high income settings. More details about the project will be provided to the shortlisted applicants.

The project will collect data across six sites, two in China, two in Africa and two in Europe.  International travel will therefore be an essential part of the job.

The post is funded for 48 months from the project start date in the first instance.
