The key purpose of this post is to develop, coordinate and manage a new AHRC funded Network designed to develop research capacity across community assets in three locations in Devon (Plymouth, South Dartmoor and Torbay). You will also contribute to and lead delivery of key activities within the project plan. This will involve working with residents, service user/patients, carers, community and voluntary sector partners, researchers and clinicians in the wider NHS.
This post is part of a Devon wide team (VCSE partners, Universities of Plymouth and Exeter, Integrated Care System) funded by UK research councils to develop research capacity related to identifying, supporting and valuing community assets with the aim of reducing health disparities. The nine-month project will lead onto the opportunity to bid for larger projects.
You will manage the project as a whole including providing a leadership role, representing the project to others locally and nationally. You will also manage the budget and timelines. An important aspect of this role will be working with community partners, researchers and other stakeholders to generate good working relationships within the network. The post will be part of the University of Plymouth’s Community and Primary Care Research Group, and be part of the Peninsula Applied Research Collaborative (PenARC). It will include working in university and site offices, from home and significant field work in the three sites.
