The MRC Epidemiology Unit and Centre for Diet & Activity Research (CEDAR) are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral Research Associate to work on the Dietary Public Health Research and the Food Industry Project on an initial six month appointment with possibility of extension. 
The Project is exploring the development of consensus about whether, how and under what conditions researchers who study food choices and population diet can work with the food industry to find solutions to pressing dietary public health problems. This area arouses strong feelings and raises many questions about scientific integrity, public trust in science and responsibilities of the food industry in supporting public health 
The closing date for applications is Wednesday 23rd November 2016. 
Interviews are likely to take place on Wednesday 7th December 2016.
