Work with us
We always want to hear from those interested in working with us! We offer flexible opportunities for researchers at all career stages.
At this time, we are interested in PhD and MSc students who are looking for opportunities to develop their research skills in an applied setting.
We are Kohlrabi Consulting, a small team of mixed-method academics working within and outside of academia to produce high quality health-based research which matters. We are passionate about research equity and prioritise research that improves the health and wellbeing of the public. We work with charities, government and NHS services providing them with knowledge they trust to make a difference to what they do.
We are looking for a confident researcher who is keen to play a part in strengthening the company we are building, while supporting the team to deliver existing research projects and lead new bids. If you are culturally competent, ethical, proactive and flexible, you bring positivity and accountability to your work, and new challenges excite you, we want to hear from you!
