University of Hull - Faculty of Health Sciences

This post is part time to work 35% fte

The Hull York Medical School invites applications for the role of Professor of Palliative Care Research in the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre (WPCRC). The successful applicant will be a leader in this field, with an established outstanding international reputation.

The successful applicant will be medically qualified and will join the WPCRC at HYMS in the University of Hull. The Centre will be embedded in a new Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research. The WPCRC’s research programme involves an established network of academics, clinicians, voluntary organisations, service users and national and international collaborators.

The WPCRC sits within the Supportive care, Early Diagnosis, and Advanced disease (SEDA) research group. There are strong palliative care collaborations with primary and secondary care which enhances our ability to carry out palliative care research within settings where patients with palliative needs spend most of their time not under the direct care of specialist palliative care.

The post holder will provide strategic direction, leadership and expertise to build on and further develop the palliative care research programme, working in close partnership with the Dean, Prof Miriam Johnson (Professor of Palliative Medicine and WPCRC Director), Prof Una Macleod (Professor of Primary Care Medicine, Dean of HYMS), and researchers across the new Faculty of Health Sciences and NHS / community colleagues.

An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service is required for this post.

Please upload a Current CV and Cover Letter and follow the online application.
