Violence, Health and Society

We are recruiting up to six Research Fellows/Senior Research Fellows and a Knowledge Exchange Manager

The UKRI/MRC/PRP has awarded £7m to a research Consortium on ‘Violence, health and society’ (2021-2026) led by Professor Sylvia Walby OBE, at the Violence and Society Centre, City, University of London. The Consortium includes partners in King's College London, University College London, Lancaster University, University of Bristol, Warwick University and Public Health Wales, and engages with multiple public and Third Sector professionals and practitioners who generate data, as well as with national and international governmental and public bodies that use data.

The Consortium will improve the measurement of violence to support the investigation of causal pathways, to develop a theory of change, and to evaluate interventions, in order to reduce the violence that harms health.  Gender and other inequalities are mainstreamed throughout the analysis. The Consortium draws on multiple disciplines across the social and health sciences, including sociology, criminology, health and economics. We will work with data from the Crime Survey for England and Wales, Third Sector specialist services, police, health services and much more. We will integrate and analyse data to build a theory of change and evaluate interventions.

We are building a team with a diverse skill-set that include high-end statistical and computing skills; an understanding of violence, of health, and of society; and experience of the organisations generating the data at the centre of the project. This is an opportunity to join a new, dynamic and interdisciplinary team, to learn and develop cutting-edge methods, improving measurement and data use across violence reduction sectors, and to publish high impact analyses.
