Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

Do you want to apply your skills to be a leader in the implementation of an exciting vision intervention and glasses wear project? Are you motivated to work with an ambitious team seeking to transform children’s access to essential tools for learning and vision health? Are you interested in the subject of vision development to improve classroom experience and academic outcomes for young children?

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to join the Glasses in Classes (GiC) project at the University of Leeds and Bradford Institute for Health Research, funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF).

You will be responsible for recruitment and co-designing/delivering of the intervention training for the proposed Glasses in Classes intervention. You will deliver this training to participating education professionals within schools in Bradford and oversee subsequent delivery of this intervention by the education professionals with initial visits to schools and infrequent check-ups. Additionally, you will maintain school-staff peer networks and offer them targeted support.

Data from this study will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention which is designed to increase the number of children who consistently wear their prescribed glasses following an eye test. Improvements in a literacy and mathematics assessment may also be found.

You will be based Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research, Bradford Royal Infirmary campus
