Applications are invited for a Research Associate/ Fellow in the area of health services research in the Division of Informatics, Imaging and Data Sciences. The post is available from 1 September 2019 and will be tenable on a fixed term basis for 36 months.

You will join the Division and take responsibility for an area of research under the supervision of Professor Evan Kontopantelis. You will examine how retention of general practitioners and nurses has changed over time, study the characteristics and predictors of retention, and also examine the association between retention and quality of care, unplanned hospital admissions and patient satisfaction. You should be able to interact effectively with researchers from a range of disciplines to implement and further develop the programme of research. The project has been funded by the Health Foundation, an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK

You will need a good first degree (2.1 or above) or equivalent in statistics or a relevant discipline and a PhD in health services research, economics, data science or statistics. You will need a solid understanding of mainstream and advanced statistical methodology and experience in applying these methods to complex administrative data.

For appointment on the Research Fellow grade, you will be expected to co-manage the project, along with the supervisor, hence excellent organisational skills are required. You will be supported by the supervisor in leading on numerous publications that are expected from this 3-year programme of work, including the final report to the funder.

The University will actively foster a culture of inclusion and diversity and will seek to achieve true equality of opportunity for all members of its community.
