Research Associate Vacancy: An opportunity to work within the School of Tourism

Despite extensive guidance about good eating habits at both national and European level, research shows that too often people are not eating enough vegetables to maintain a healthy diet.  VeggiEAT is an exciting, European-wide collaborative research project designed to address the problem of poor diet and unhealthy eating.  By exploring the barriers to healthy eating, the project aims to challenge existing policy and business practices, as well as encouraging people to eat a more balanced diet.

 An exciting opportunity to support the project has arisen.  VeggiEAT is looking for an enthusiastic research associate to work with academics at BU on a short term contract.  The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the work of VeggiEAT through undertaking research activities, supporting academic colleagues and assisting with writing for publication.
