The research fellow will support a number of research studies across the programme of work including working directly with local families to collect data, complete analyses and produce reports. The programme will combine the exciting potential of Better Start Bradford to transform the health and well-being of a new generation of children, with the world-leading expertise of the Born in Bradford research cohort

The successful candidate will have experience of qualitative and/or quantitative research in an applied health setting, working as part of a team, and strong knowledge of applied health research procedures. You will be able to work flexibly and responsively to meet the needs of the research programme.
