Applicants should be experienced in working on applied health research projects and have a PhD in social sciences or health sciences using qualitative methods, and strong background in qualitative methods applied to health services research e.g., interviews and unstructured ethnographic observations (preferably in healthcare, clinical and/or social care settings) to develop, optimise, implement and evaluate health service and public health interventions.

What will you be doing?
The postholder will work across several research projects, mainly supporting the priorities of ARC West’s Public Health and Prevention research theme and HPRU’s Intervention development theme and Intervention optimisation and implementation theme. This will involve liaising with external collaborators to design and develop high quality qualitative and mixed methods research studies. They will utilise a range of data collection and analytic methods to complete the studies and they may also work with and supervise other members of the team. The postholder will contribute to the Public and Community Involvement, Engagement and Participation (PCIEP) activities and strategies for projects.
