At DMU, we have an ambitious Research Strategy which aims to make research central to our mission as a university. As a university committed to the public good, we have a track record of research that impacts society and makes a real difference to people's lives through improvements to health and well-being, infrastructure, creativity, economic growth, business and civil society.

Our commitment to research is integral to our aim to develop our students as critical thinkers. This was recognised in the assessment that accompanied the university's award of TEF Gold in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework. It was recognised that our research "fed into the curriculum through a focus on application to real-world settings and research-led work placements". As the United Nations' (UN) designated Global Hub for Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 - the only UK university to be designated as such - we have a commitment to address the UN SDGs in our research, teaching and enterprise activity.

Faculty / Directorate

Home to four specialist schools - Leicester School of Allied Health Sciences, Applied Social Sciences, Nursing and Midwifery, and Leicester School of Pharmacy - the faculty educates and develops professionals who make a significant difference to lives, health, wellbeing, communities and society.

Teaching reflects the latest developments in the sector and many courses have professional accreditations. A range of work experience and volunteering opportunities enables students to develop the skills sought by graduate employers. Recent graduates have secured roles with leading employers such as AstraZeneca, Ministry of Defence and the NHS. The dedicated facilities are designed to replicate current practice and feature industry-standard equipment, enabling staff and students to undertake life changing projects to improve health and social care.

Role

This is a part-time fixed term post, the salary shown will be pro rata'd. A component of the role will be to develop research objectives, projects and proposals for research programmes consistent with health and social care research strategy and priorities. Undertake literature searches and critical reviews to support the furtherance of research in health and social care, including the writing-up of research and publish the outcomes in high impact, good quality publications. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with a strong mixed-methods and or quantitative background. The majority of research in health and social care is multi-disciplinary and collaborative therefore there will be a requirement to work with academics and other stakeholders outside of DMU and some work links to our international activities.

Ideal Candidate

This position is ideally suited to an individual who has already gained some research experience either through their own research activity or working within research active organisations (such as universities, NHS or social care settings). The candidate will be required to demonstrate an understanding of research methods and in particular a strong mixed-methods and or quantitative approaches and analysis within a health and social care environment.

Informal enquiries about the post can be made to: Professor Bertha Ochieng,
