Research Fellow, Ambulatory Care

University of Birmingham - College of Medical and Dental Sciences, Institute of Applied Health Research

Full Time, fixed term for 3 years

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new research group, led by Professor Dan Lasserson, to generate the evidence for the NHS to deliver an acute medical care pathway that maximises ambulatory care. With a call for greater integration between primary and secondary care, the research group will tackle one of the biggest challenges for the NHS – how to meet the rising demand for acute medical care with a static or indeed shrinking hospital bed base. We will test how acute assessment, treatment and monitoring can be delivered out of hospital and its impact on patient and carer experience.

This role will enable the successful applicant to build on their doctoral research and develop into an independent researcher under the supervision of Prof Dan Lasserson. We plan to conduct studies in acute clinical settings using quantitative and qualitative techniques, including ethnography, as well as large database epidemiology. The successful applicant will have an unrivalled opportunity to undertake impactful research that will support the NHS in a time of rapid change and improve patient and carer experience of acute care.

The successful applicant will have a first degree in a relevant discipline and a higher degree relevant to research area, have demonstrable high level analytical capability, experience of acute clinical settings from previous research activity or clinical training and evidence of communicating complex information clearly.
