Based at University of York campus (with some remote working options available)
The Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) at the University of York is recruiting a motivated Grade 6 Research Fellow to contribute to a range of evidence synthesis projects.
CRD is an academic research department (https://www.york.ac.uk/crd) that specialises in and is at the forefront of evidence synthesis. Our systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis projects span a broad range of health and public health areas. They provide best evidence to inform policy and practice decisions and are underpinned by a programme of methodological development and commitment to knowledge exchange.
Following a top ten place in REF21, implementation of a new research strategy and award of funding to establish a new NIHR Evidence Synthesis Group, we have created several additional posts and are seeking a motivated early career researcher to join our growing team.
CRD is a friendly and supportive workplace that is part of a wider health and social care research community within the University of York. We embrace hybrid and flexible working patterns, enabling staff to work partly remotely (within the UK) according to project needs and their preferences. We value diversity, and are committed to equality of opportunity and fostering an inclusive culture where we can all be ourselves.
The person appointed will work on evidence synthesis projects across CRD research programmes. This may include health technology assessment (HTA) projects commissioned under our NIHR Technology Assessment Reviews (TAR) programme, which inform National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) decisions about which new drugs and technologies are approved for use in the NHS. It may also include projects commissioned under our NIHR Policy Reviews Facility or our NIHR Evidence Synthesis Group to provide policymakers with research evidence and facilitate its use in their decision-making. They will also have the opportunity to contribute to developing methods and to funding applications.
Required skills, experience & qualification
Applications are welcome from candidates with a Masters level qualification in a health science, applied statistical, or social science subject and a relevant PhD or equivalent research experience. Strong quantitative skills are required. Candidates must be able to work collaboratively as part of a team, and with stakeholders. Further training and career development will be supported.
This is a full-time position, but we will also consider applicants who wish to work part-time provided that this is at least 60% of a whole time equivalent (3 days per week).
We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates and particularly encourage applications from people who identify as being from the Black African and Caribbean Heritage community, Asian or other ethnic background that is underrepresented at the University.
Interview date: May 2023
For informal enquiries: please contact Prof Alison Eastwood (email@example.com) or Mark Rodgers (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The University strives to be diverse and inclusive– a place where we can ALL be ourselves.
We particularly encourage applications from people who identify as Black, Asian or from a Minority Ethnic background, who are underrepresented at the University.
We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
