The National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) conducts high-quality, high-impact research on alcohol and other drug use in Australia. Funded by the Australian Research Council, a large, international research project is about to commence at NDRI’s Melbourne office, which is currently located in Fitzroy. The project will investigate the gender concepts informing research and policy on alcohol-related violence among young people, using a comparative approach encompassing Australia, Canada and Sweden. Using a combination of qualitative methods, including interviews with epidemiologists and policymakers, the project aims to develop recommendations for improving Australia’s capacity to address gender issues in alcohol-related violence. The project also involves research collaborators at The Australian National University, the Centre for Addiction & Mental Health (Canada) and Stockholm University.
You will be employed to manage the day-to-day operations of the project. This position will be responsible for recruiting, conducting, coding and analysing research interviews; collecting, coding and analysing textual materials; coordinating other aspects of the project; contributing to the publication of research findings and other project outputs; and presenting findings to academic and other audiences.
Applications close 5pm, Monday 14 May.
