The University of Huddersfield is currently seeking “a researcher to assist with the management of the research activities” and “a professional to engage and manage stakeholders in the research and policy activities” of the UNESCO Chair ‘Global Health and Education’ (GHE). The UNESCO Chair GHE is a multidisciplinary collaboration about the intersections between health and education, co-chaired from 2022-2026 by the Université Clermont Auvergne in France and the University of Huddersfield in the UK. These jobs are based in the School of Applied Sciences at the University of Huddersfield.
The University is investing in these two new roles to underpin the existing and future research activities of the Chair. You will work with academics across the Schools of Applied Sciences, Human and Health Sciences, Education and Professional Development, and Huddersfield Business School on topics including school health, lifelong learning for health, the public health role of community health settings and the genuine participation of children and youth in public life.
You must have a PhD submitted or awarded in the subject areas of healthcare, public health, health promotion, social care or education. With the ability to produce high quality funding applications and publications, you will work strategically to assist the Chair to become self-sustaining in terms of research activity by 2026. Experience of working with children, young people and families – in schools or community settings – would be an asset.
Apply by 05/12/2023.
