This Senior Research Associate post is an excellent opportunity for a health services researcher with a keen interest in evidence-based medicine and complex healthcare interventions to join the NIHR Bristol Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). The Bristol BRC is a partnership between University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Bristol.

Our clinical research theme is a multi-disciplinary team of around 35 core staff that aims to develop better ways to evaluate complex invasive healthcare interventions.
What will you be doing?
The post-holder will primarily focus on a specific project in the BRC examining the governance around how innovative healthcare interventions are introduced into clinical practice to optimise processes. This will involve work with NHS trust committees, analysis of policies, and elicitation of stakeholder opinion through workshops, meetings, and collaborations with industry. It will utilise qualitative methods (interviews and observation), document analysis and literature work. There will also be opportunities to develop new projects, to teach and to collaborate on others

Significant experience of independent research in health services research and of conducting qualitative analysis is essential. Candidates should show a capacity to develop expertise in trials and early phase study methodology involving complex healthcare procedures. An ability to work and liaise with secondary healthcare organisations nationally is required, alongside excellent communication and interpersonal skills and demonstrated abilities to effectively collaborate and work well as part of a multi-disciplinary team.
