An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced and highly motivated individual to take on the role of Research Fellow within a theme of work entitled ‘Evidence Based Transformation with the NHS’. This research theme is part of the current Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care in Yorkshire and Humber (CLAHRC YH), funded by the NIHR.  The Evidence Based Transformation theme involves academics and clinicians from a range of academic disciplines (psychology, health economics, design) from the Universities of York, Leeds and Sheffield, and all of the 44 healthcare organisations in the Yorkshire and Humber region. The successful applicant will work at the Bradford Institute for Health Research within the Quality and Safety Research unit, a multi-disciplinary research team, who specialise in applied health research, focusing on organisational and team learning for patient safety, behaviour change and patient involvement in safety.

The CLAHRCs have recently been awarded a further nine months’ funding by NIHR (January to September 2019) to support the conclusion of all their themes of work, the dissemination of findings locally, nationally and internationally and the development of proposals to attract further funding. The Research Fellow will join the Evidence Based Transformation theme during this exciting, pivotal phase to help the team demonstrate the impact this research has had on the region and beyond. The successful applicant will work alongside the Programme Manager and other senior researchers to undertake analysis of collected data, contribute to the writing of publications and funding applications for new research, and support research dissemination events (e.g. workshops, conferences).

The successful applicant will be educated to post-graduate level e.g. PhD (or due to submit before January 2019) or have equivalent experience/qualification in a health or social science research area, with experience in health-related research and undertaking qualitative and quantitative research.
