UEA has some of the most innovative and highly regarded centres for research in the UK. Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate/Senior Research Associate to undertake research under the supervision of dr. Roberta Fida within the project “Economic Sector, Biomechanical Risks and Work Related Stress: secondary analysis of the data from the INAIL platform, systematic review and case studies’” which is funded by INAIL (the Italian national Institute for Insurance against Accidents at Work). The project is co-led by dr. Roberta Fida, Associate Professor at the Norwich Business School – University of East Anglia, working closely with Professor Claudio Barbaranelli of Sapienza University of Rome.
The main aim of the project is to examine the social determinants of work-related stress risk, specifically focusing on differences in relation to the economic sector of the organisation. This is examined through: a) the systematic review; b) the secondary analyses of data on the cumulative database related to the INAIL methodology for the assessment of work-related stress, with a specific focus to the HSE indicator tool questionnaire; c) the analysis of specific case studies.
We are seeking a social-science scientist with an outstanding track record and an interest in working on the project to push forward the boundaries of our understanding of work-related stress. The post holder will assist in the further development and dissemination of the project and linking it to other scientific developments and applications.
