Dear EASP colleagues,
We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated Implementation Scientist to support the GROWTH research program in the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland (UQ). This is a full-time, fixed-term (5 years) research-focused position. The GROWTH program will pioneer a new integrated, sustainable community- focused approach that leverages UQ’s intervention program, GROUPS 4 HEALTH (G4H; see https://sign.centre.uq.edu.au/products-services/products/social-connection-for-health), in ways that help people to optimise their access and use of existing community resources. Working with academic and community partners who work with young people and older adults, GROWTH aims to empower people to manage loneliness when it presents, but also to prevent its occurrence which is needed to reduce the health burden and cost of loneliness at scale.
The Implementation Scientist will provide high-level specialist behavioural science and technical research expertise to support research projects and its intervention programs and initiatives as part of the GROWTH program. This role involves working with the GROWTH multidisciplinary team (in the Schools of Psychology and Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, and the Centre of Business and Economics of Health) to conduct implementation science research to support the translation of GROWTH’s evidence-based research into practice and in seeking large-scale funding to support the programs activities.
Applications close 1 March 2023, 11:00pm (AEST).
