We are committed to the meaningful involvement of people with lived/living experience of drug use, and affected family members, throughout our work. We engage with a wide range of stakeholders to:

  • secure funding to deliver these projects across Scotland, the rest of the UK and internationally.
  • share learning from our and other peoples’ research to help inform the Scottish response to problem drug use.

The Role

We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated Research Coordinator to support the developing work of the DRNS. This post is a unique opportunity to move the DRNS into the next phase in which supporting ambitious and large-scale collaborative projects will be a priority. Research management experience is required, and knowledge or involvement in drug dependence, addictions, drug policy and health service research are highly desirable. A minimum of Masters or MRes level degree is essential, as is the ability to communicate confidently and effectively through all communication systems, excellent planning and organisational skills, and a particular eye for detail. This role would suit someone who enjoys crafting clear research proposals from initial networking and collaboration, to study design and preparation of the application.

An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic person to work on an Economic and Social Research Council funded project which explores the nature, creation, impact and regulation of gendered alcohol brand and nightlife marketing in the age of ‘contemporary feminism’. 

The research aims to improve our understanding of how such marketing affects alcohol use, and experiences of the night-time economy, with the aim of engaging with key stakeholders (e.g. young people, NGOs, policy makers, industry) to help make venues healthier, safer, and more inclusive. It will examine the gendered nature of alcohol brand and nightlife industry marketing and how this has changed in recent years as a result of the re-emergence of feminism(s), and the increasing use of ‘cause marketing’ by brands.
