Are you an early career researcher looking for a challenge? Do you have an interest in physical activity promotion in people living with and beyond cancer? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?
Leeds Institute of Health Sciences are looking to recruit a full-time Research Assistant to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team on a study funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research. This study is a pilot randomised controlled trial of a digital physical activity intervention in people affected by breast, prostate or colorectal (bowel) cancers.

You will also contribute to the day-to-day running of the study, site set-up and recruitment of participants, data collection, data processing, intervention delivery, conducting and analysing interviews, and supporting the writing-up of research for publication.
You will have a good first degree in a relevant discipline, Psychology or Health Sciences and previous research experience of Quantitative and Qualitative data collection and analysis.
