The purpose of the job is to contribute to the India-related research activities for a social science project funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC): Analysing the transnational provisioning of services in the social sector: the case of commercialisation of NHS services in China and India.
The multi-disciplinary research aims to improve critical understanding of how transnational engagements between wealthy countries and emerging economies are contributing to new market creation in global healthcare, and their domestic implications. We seek to address this issue through a detailed study of contemporary attempts by public and private actors to position the UK NHS, and particularly English healthcare providers, within healthcare markets in India and China; the responses to such overtures in these countries; and conversely Indian and Chinese interest in potential market opportunities within the UK. The project will throw new light on the dynamics of a growing global healthcare industry; on the intersecting fields of governance, financing, production and delivery of healthcare, and on evolving moral economies of healthcare provision in the transnational context.
This post-doctoral social science post is full-time for 18 months, to commence before the end of 2021. It will suit a candidate with good working knowledge of India and the UK, experience with conducting high level interviews, and competent qualitative data analysis and academic writing skills.  The job will be based primarily in King’s College London Department of International Development, located in Bush House in central London. It will require travel to conduct fieldwork in India for approximately a third of the contract period, and for meetings in the UK, India and China. The post-holder will join an established and friendly team led by Professor Susan Fairley Murray, will receive career development funds and will have access to professional development support and training through the King’s College London Centre for Research Staff Development.
