The School of Human Sciences, University of Greenwich, is seeking a research fellow to work on an 18-month Road Safety Trust funded project to investigate the use of Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA), an in-vehicle safety technology that helps drivers to remain within the speed limit and therefore drive more safely. The role is on a fixed term contract basis from 1 July 2022 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to 31 June 2023.

The successful applicant will be responsible for:
- Project management on a day-to-day basis
- Contributing to the design, conduct, and analysis for two quantitative studies, one modelling drivers’ intentions to use ISA, and one evaluating an intervention to increase ISA use.
- Supporting the development of a theory-based behaviour change intervention
- Contribute to dissemination of the research by writing up the research findings for both academic (e.g., for publication in scientific journals) and non-academic (e.g., reports for the stakeholders, beneficiaries and/or funders) audiences.
- Coordinating the research team across multiple institutions
