The School of Health Sciences is seeking to appoint a full time Research Fellow for 14 months to support Dr Josie Evans, the Principal Investigator on a recently awarded research grant from the Chief Scientist Office. The successful candidate will be based at the University of Stirling but will also be required to carry out field work in the Stirling area.

The aims of the project are to test the feasibility of working in a Bingo club setting to deliver a group-based physical activity intervention (the pilot Well!Bingo programme) to older, socially disadvantaged women.

The successful candidate will be expected to co-ordinate all aspects of the project. He/she will be responsible for ensuring that the project is completed as per the protocol and on time. An essential element of this will be to create and maintain good lines of communication with staff and customers of the Bingo club and with lay representatives on the research team.

Stirling is a University of distinction, home to leading researchers and scholars attracted by the unique learning environment, exceptional facilities and student-centred approach, where ability, not background, is recognised and valued.

The essence of the University of Stirling is its people: graduates, staff and students are helping to shape the world by making a direct and positive contribution to the development of prosperous, healthy and sustainable communities around the globe.
