This post will be based within the Mental Health and Addictions Research Group at the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York. The group, in collaboration with the Tobacco and Alcohol Group at University College London, has been awarded a large research grant in the area of tobacco smoking and mental illness.
The overall aim of the project is to assess the feasibility, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of electronic cigarettes for smoking cessation and reduction in people with mental illness. It will include a randomised controlled feasibility study, followed by a fully powered randomised controlled trial.
We are looking for a Research Associate to join the interdisciplinary research team of academics, clinicians and service user/carer representatives to work on the newly awarded and closely associated existing research programmes. The post presents an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and highly motivated person to develop their career in an excellent research environment, joining a large and highly successful multi-disciplinary department renowned for its methodological expertise and commitment to research with high impact on policy and practice.
