One of the key steps in developing an ontology is exploring whether the labels and definitions of the ontology’s classes can be applied consistently. To do this, we check if different people apply the ontology in the same way when coding behaviour change intervention reports. We are seeking two researchers to contribute to this step in the development of the Schedule and Dose Ontology. Please see below for details: 

  • The task will consist of coding entities related with schedule and dose for approximately 40 behaviour change intervention reports. We estimate this will take 5 full days to complete 

  • Remuneration of £500 will be provided 

  • The task needs to be completed between the 5th  and 19th September 2022 

  • Training and guidance will be provided 

  • Candidates must have at least a Master’s degree in Health Psychology, Behavioural Science or similar.  Experience of coding behaviour change interventions for evidence synthesis would be advantageous 

  • The task will be completely online and is open to UK and international candidates 

To express your interest in taking part, please email with a copy of your CV, highlighting any experience of coding behaviour change interventions.

Deadline: end of Thursday 25th August.
