The Institute for Global Health and Development is a multi-disciplinary centre for research and postgraduate education addressing contemporary health and development challenges in low and middle income countries. The Institute represents one of the ‘flagship’ areas of work at QMU, with a strong commitment to profiling research of policy and practice relevance. It regularly holds major research funding from sources including UKRI, NIHR, FCDO, AMIF, NIH and enjoys enduring relationships with policy and practice partners such as the WHO, World Bank, the Red Cross movement, UK Home Office and Scottish Government. Marked by a commitment to critical thinking, practice engagement, and social justice, over its thirty-year history, it has equipped over five hundred Masters and doctoral alumni from sub-Saharan Africa, South and East Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas for work in the global health, development and humanitarian sectors.
This position provides an excellent opportunity for leading the further development of the Health System Cluster, which has a global reputation for its work on health system strengthening, health financing and human resources, resilience, political economy analysis, and evaluation of complex interventions, including but not only in fragile, shock-prone and conflict-affected settings. The cluster holds a number of high-profile research grants and works closely with policy makers at multiple levels but is seeking a Reader who will contribute to its continued growth through their personal research work but also through mentoring of the team and leading effective research strategy development for the group, growing its networks and funding in a sustainable manner. The post has options for increased leadership pathways in IGHD over time, if of interest to the post-holder.
