About the Project
This project will investigate factors affecting current patterns of dietary intake of young adults studying at Higher Education Institutions continuing work from our currently established CINSYA and CONTINUUM cohorts. Using existing data as a rationale, targeted nutritional interventions will be designed and effects on changes to knowledge, behaviour, diet, nutritional status and health will be explored.
The findings of this research will make an original contribution to the body of knowledge on factors affecting young adult nutrition and health and may impact guidance and regulations for health promotion at Higher Education Institutions. If successful, this research may contribute to the decrease in rates of obesity and cardiometabolic risk in young adults to modify lifestyle and health behaviours.
The Faculty of Science at Liverpool Hope University has an outstanding commitment to research and has a rich postgraduate research environment. The environment is enhanced by recent investments in the new facilities and state-of-the-art equipment within the School of Health Sciences. Training and support will be provided to successful applicants.
The ApplicantThe successful applicant should have an MSc or equivalent in Nutrition or related science degree. They will demonstrate a strong interest in the topic and show good communication and writing skills. They will have the ability to think analytically and creatively.
Previous experience of working in an interdisciplinary research environment is highly desirable but not necessary.
