Imperial College London is recruiting for a Research Fellow to manage an academic portfolio of work relating to patient safety and organizational resilience within the NIHR-funded Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC).

In 2010, Professor the Lord Ara Darzi established the Centre for Health Policy which forms part of Imperial’s Institute of Global Health Innovation (IGHI). The Centre aims to catalyse the development, uptake and diffusion of innovative, evidence-based health policy around the world and delivers its vision through both academic research and applied policy analysis by employing multidisciplinary project teams that combine clinicians, academics, policy-makers and other thinkers. The Centre’s work is focused on health policy development, the diffusion of innovation, patient safety, e-health and informatics, behavioural economics and quality of care.

The NIHR Imperial PSTRC, hosted by Imperial College Healthcare Trust and Imperial College London and funded by the National Institute for Health Research, is one of three national patient safety Centres. It has pioneered research and translation in patient safety for over 10 years.

You will need a PhD in health policy, psychology, health sciences, data sciences or equivalent research background. In addition you will be expected to have an advanced understanding of patient safety and NHS systems and to have a practical experience within a research environment. It is essential for the successful candidate to have a creative approach to problem-solving and to have the ability to direct the work of a small research team and motivate others to produce a high standard of work.

The post will be full-time and fixed term for two years.
