Job Opportunity - Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Posted on January 13th 2017

We are looking to recruit a Research Fellow to support the work of PenCLAHRC, based at the University of Exeter Medical School. The successful applicant will work on developing existing and new research ideas into funding proposals, specifically in the area of Older People with Complex Health Needs. The post holder may also be expected to contribute to other PenCLAHRC projects in more generic fields of applied health services research.  

The post offers an exciting opportunity to become part of a successful and enthusiastic team committed to improving public health and patient outcomes through innovative health research and implementation. PenCLAHRC's novel ground-up approach to co-produce research, led by patients, clinicians and managers in collaboration with researchers, has led to notable successes and we are determined to build on these.

More than anything, we are dedicated to doing research that makes a difference. If this sounds like the kind of environment in which you would thrive, and you meet the criteria set out in the job description, we would really like to hear from you.

We are keen to develop PenCLAHRC's capacity in the application of qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods to health services research as well as intervention development and evaluation. We welcome applications from individuals with a background in these areas. 

Applicants will possess a relevant PhD or have an equivalent qualification/experience in a related field of study, be a nationally recognised authority within health services research, preferably the older people/complex health needs field, and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to develop research programmes and methodologies.

The closing date for applications is Monday 27 February 2017. The post is funded by PenCLAHRC and is available immediately until 31st December 2018.

To discuss this role, please contact Mrs Jo Shuttleworth via email or on 01392 726062, or Dr Vicki Goodwin via email or on 01392 722745.
