Lecturer or Associate Professor in Primary Care

University of Leeds - Leeds Institute of Health Sciences (LIHS)

Leeds Institute of Health Sciences (LIHS) invites applications for a Lecturer/Associate Professor in the Academic Unit of Primary Care (AUPC). You will contribute to the development of a multi-disciplinary research portfolio commensurate with emerging fields of investigation within the AUPC (including older people, cancer and primary care, and clinical trials) and play a significant role in developing the direction of teaching and learning within health research. This post therefore represents an exciting opportunity for an individual keen to shape the strategic development of a thriving Academic Unit. Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent qualification in primary care, health services research or a closely related field, and be familiar with working in a multidisciplinary research environment.

You will contribute to a major research programme within the Academic Unit, and participate in the AUPC’s innovation and knowledge transfer activities. You will foster appropriate links and collaboration with internal groups and external to the University of Leeds. You will be experienced in both methodological and policy-relevant applied research. You will work with senior academics in building shared portfolios of work likely to include primary care oncology, the health and wellbeing of older people and clinical trials. All applicants will need to demonstrate how their work complements or enhances existing applied health research activity in Leeds. Effective interpersonal and time management skills are essential as is the capacity to infuse others with your own enthusiasm and to work successfully as a team member. Effective communication, presentation and administrative skills are also essential.

You will be expected to carry out collaborative research and publish work of distinction; to take an equitable role in teaching and the supervision of postgraduate students; and to contribute appropriately to the management of the Institute.
