This is an outstanding opportunity for a researcher to join the Department of Neuroscience and make a contribution to neurology health related research at The University of Sheffield. We are seeking a Senior Research Fellow who is an outstanding health services researcher in the mid stage of their research career. This new post is to support the delivery of a newly awarded NIHR Research Professorship ‘Better outcomes for people living with MND’. The objectives of the programme are to determine:

  • If highly specialised personalised evidence-based multidisciplinary care for people living with MND be delivered effectively close to home?
  • Can technology and patient centred outcome measures reduce burden and increase participation in clinical trials?

You will join an enthusiastic interdisciplinary research team led by Professor Chris McDermott, Professor of Translational Neurology. You will be responsible for co-leading the ‘Better outcome sin MND’ Research Professorship – working closely with Professor McDermott, other members of the team and collaborators on the award. You will have particular responsibility for the qualitative research and aspects of the programme relating to complex health interventions. This will include designing and overseeing the delivery of research studies in the programme, as well as report writing and publications resulting from the work. This role also involves applying for future funding to address new research areas of importance to improving outcome for people living with MND. The programme is national in scope and will require wide liaison. You will be carrying out interviews with patients, their families and their care providers, and conducting focus groups with health care professionals and members of the public. You will be responsible for the day-to-day supervision of PhD students attached to the programme. You will be responsible for supporting the roll out of the research to additional sites. The programme involves the iteration and evaluation of clinical services for people living with MND as new technologies are introduced.

You will integrate into the Department of Neuroscience, which is one of the three constituent departments of The Medical School. We are seeking a highly motivated person with a track record of conducting high quality health services research to develop and evaluate complex health interventions, with a particular emphasis on technology.
