Research Assistant

Swansea University - College Human and Health Sciences

£28936 to £32548 per annum (pro rata if part time), together with USS pension benefits if required.

The normal expectation is that the successful applicant will be appointed to the minimum of the agreed scale with annual increments on 1 October each year (subject to completing six months service).

Grade 7.

The successful applicant will have responsibility for supporting the Director of the Centre for Global Burn Injury Policy and Research, and other Researchers within the Centre, with a broad range of research tasks.

A key challenge faced by the global health community is how to take proven interventions and implement them in the real world. Affordable, life-saving interventions exist to confront many of the health challenges we face, (including burns), but there is little understanding how to deliver those interventions across the full range of existing health systems and in the wide diversity of possible settings.

The Centre for Global Burn Injury Policy & Research at the College of Human and Health Sciences will address these issues combining implementation science, quality improvement methodology, participatory action research, health economic studies, outcomes research, impact evaluations and strategy development.

Overcoming the barriers of putting knowledge into action is a key part of the process and implementation science provides the framework for doing this.

The Centre will be working closely with international organisations, agencies and other academic centres as well as governments and the World Health Organisation to develop relevant and appropriate policies, and drive forward the research agenda to improve global burn care and prevention.
