We have an exciting opportunity in the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) for an innovative and visionary academic with a strong international reputation, world leading research publications and a strong track record in research funding to contribute to our research portfolio.

It is an exciting time for health data analytics at ScHARR. We have a large critical mass of highly skilled staff and access to large volumes of rich data. We have strong collaborative links with the NHS, local authorities, public health bodies and social care partners, and a long track record of delivering research that has direct impact on policy and practice.

As our new Chair in Applied Health Data Analytics / Informatics you will take the lead role in growing applied health data analytics research within ScHARR, in collaboration with colleagues from across the University of Sheffield and beyond. You will develop a programme of high impact, world-leading research in applied health data analytics, building on, and extending, ScHARR’s current strengths in health services and public health research.

You will have extensive skills in data analytics, a significant track record of designing and delivering competitively-funded applied health data analysis projects and experience of effective academic leadership. You will also hold a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject.

This open ended academic position is based in the Health Services Research section in ScHARR, but you will collaborate widely across the whole School. ScHARR is a large, vibrant and friendly department with a distinctly non-hierarchical ethos, and where collaboration is highly valued.
