Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in applied health research? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities? 

We are seeking to appoint a Senior Research Fellow with experience of developing and evaluating complex interventions to support delivery of the National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaborative, Yorkshire & Humber (NIHR ARC YH).

Our NIHR ARC YH theme aims to improve the physical and mental health of older people living with frailty, including care home residents. We plan internationally-leading work to develop and evaluate prioritised interventions for people living with frailty and care home residents, increase sustainability of health and care services for older people, and build UK frailty research capacity.

You will play a key role in prioritising research questions from the perspective of older people living with frailty and care home residents, their families, carers, health and social care professionals. You will build on these findings to develop and test prioritised interventions using novel research methods, including efficient trial designs such as trial within cohort methodology.

You will have previously conducted and managed or co-ordinated complex research studies and programmes involving multiple stakeholders and organisations. Ideally, this previous experience would have been gained in a healthcare context. You will have a first degree and PhD (or, must have handed in initial thesis by time of application) in a health sciences discipline, and experience of working or researching in an ageing research, frailty or care homes context.
