This is an excellent opportunity to work on and contribute to large global intervention studies and to be part of an international research team with wide policy and programming impact. Eligible candidates will be familiar with a range of statistical packages (at a minimum, R, STATA and MPlus) and with longitudinal data analysis techniques, for example multi-level modelling, latent growth curve modelling, structural equation modelling, mixed models data merging, moderator/mediator analyses, and data visualisations.

Our research team is committed to improving outcomes for high-risk children and globally, and this is our primary guiding aim. We are also committed to capacity-building and supporting team members to further their careers, and you will be supported to further your career portfolio, including writing and publishing first-authored papers as well as supporting data analysis and writing as a co-author.

The Department is committed to fostering an environment of equality, diversity and inclusion.
