Do you want to contribute to a Cancer Research UK funding project investigating patient decision-making regarding pharmalogical approaches to breast cancer prevention? Do you have a PhD in behavioural science or a related discipline? Are you self-motivated and able to work effectively in a team?

You will use expertise in behavioural science to exploit an established dataset investigating decision-making in the context of breast cancer prevention among high risk women. In addition, you will undertake research into novel approaches to providing lifestyle advice for cancer prevention. This will include contributing to systematic reviews, secondary data analysis of existing datasets, qualitative and quantitative work with patients, health professionals, and the public, and intervention development.

You will be encouraged and supported to develop your own research interests in this space. You will contribute to the preparation of research funding proposals, undertake specific packages of work within funded projects, and prepare publications for international journals and conferences.
