About the role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated individual with research experience and proven ability to write for publication, to work for the newly formed Arts in Health Centre of Excellence part of the College of Health & Social Care Research Centre (CHSCRC). The Research Centre was established in 2014 with the support of  funding from NHS England and Derbyshire’s four Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). The Centre’s main activities have focused around the co-design and delivery of projects with the CCGs, securing external funding and delivery of these projects, and a range of REF-related activities. Going forward, delivering health service evaluations will continue to be a key strand of the Centre’s income generation activity. Alongside this, through close collaboration with the NHS and Clinical Commissioning Groups, and by establishing partnerships with other universities and institutions, the Centre has been working on number of research proposals.

The research fellow is to have primary responsibility for working with our research fellow and academics galvanising research bids from clusters affiliated with the Arts in Health Centre of Excellence, especially orientated towards UOA03. The fellow will be housed within the College of Health & Social Care Research Centre, but will work with cross-College collaborative research bids and bids originating from College clusters.

We need to develop further research in the range of 3* and 4* and highlight work of international significance and world-class research already being conducted, but not sufficiently celebrated and highlighted. The Centre of Excellence will function across College boundaries and be interdisciplinary in nature, instigating collaborative relationships and providing a ‘shop-window’ and marketing opportunity. The Arts in Health Centre of Excellence will bring together excellent practice and research, acknowledging TEF as well as REF.

Your principal accountabilities will be working collaboratively with research clusters to develop fundable research proposals and co-writing with academic colleagues towards joint publications at 3*.”
