Work With Us – Project Coordinator Position on a Nutrition Survey in Schools

We are looking for our next Project Coordinator. The purpose of this role is to update the documents and processes and manage the day-to-day running of a Heart Foundation of New Zealand funded project: A survey of the sodium and potassium intakes of 300 New Zealand school children aged 8 to 11 years. Ethical approval for the survey has already been obtained and all study documents and processes have been set up. However, a full review and update will be required prior to taking the survey to the field – this is because the survey was set up for data collection in 2020 but was put on hold due to Covid-19 lockdowns.

The successful applicant will work closely with the project Principal Investigator and communicate regularly with the wider study team, including all co-investigators and collaborators and Research Assistant.

There will also be an opportunity in the future to contribute to and co-author the results manuscript.

This is a casual position for a minimum of six months. Days of work will average approximately three per week and are flexible depending on data collection in schools and applicant availability. The role will start as soon as possible and is based at the University of Auckland Grafton campus.
