An exciting opportunity has arisen at Warwick Medical School, for an experienced Research Fellow with qualitative and mixed methods research experience.

The Facilitating Access to Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Training in High-Risk Areas study (FACTs) is using a participatory, mixed methods approach. The study is guided by realist principals and informed by behaviour change theory. It will explore reasons for why there are some areas in England with a high incidence of cardiac arrest where there are also low rates of bystander resuscitation interventions, develop interventions and evaluate them in several areas of England.

You will join an experienced and enthusiastic interdisciplinary research team led by Dr Claire Hawkes, Senior Research Fellow, Emergency and Critical Care Team, at Warwick Medical School. You will undertake all research aspects of the study, supervised by the project team, from participant recruitment through qualitative and some quantitative data collection, analysis, data synthesis to report writing and dissemination.

The study is working collaboratively with members of minority group communities in underserved areas. In partnership with our public contributors and study team members you will be facilitating workshop discussions, developing and evaluating the implementation of interventions.

You will work closely and flexibly with other members of the research team, public collaborators, staff in community groups who assist with access to participants and in organising intervention events, so you must demonstrate excellent communication and management skills together with the ability to organize and to work autonomously and as part of a team. You will be able to motivate others, show enthusiasm and innovate when faced with different types of challenges.

This is a full time, fixed term Senior Research Fellow post. Appointment at Senior Research Fellow is open to candidates with a relevant PHD and appropriate research experience.

This post is available full-time (part time or job share may be considered).

Warwick Medical School will be you work base. Flexibility for data collection will be required; there may be flexibility for remote working.

Informal enquiries welcome. Please contact Dr Claire Hawkes. email: 

Closing date: 7 November 2021
