Applications are invited for a career-track qualitative social scientist to join the Interdisciplinary Research in Health Services (IRIHS) group to take a leading role in the Translational Health Sciences post-graduate programme and health and social care research undertaken by the group.
This is an attractive position in a thriving research group, combining teaching, research and scholarship. It offers the successful applicant opportunities to contribute to the design and delivery of post-graduate research and teaching, and to build and conduct research on technology and digital innovation across health and social care.
The post holder will take a leading role in the Translational Health Sciences programme, including development and delivery of modules for the MSc programme and coordination of the associated DPhil programme. With interests spanning both health and social care – and taking a leading role on the latter - they will progress new and ongoing research studies within the group. This will include building up their own research and contributing to a new NIHR-funded rapid evaluation centre (a partnership across the University of Oxford and RAND Europe) focused on technology-enabled remote monitoring (e.g. ‘virtual ward services’ that aim to monitor, review and support care at home).
Responsibilities include generating income for new research, conducting theoretical and empirical work across health and social care, translation of research findings into policy and practice, delivery of two MSc modules and coordination of training and support for PhD students hosted by the IRIHS group. As a senior academic, the post holder will have an opportunity to input into the strategy of future direction of the IRIHS research group.
You will have a PhD in a relevant subject (such as sociology, anthropology, social policy, management/organisation studies) plus significant research and teaching experience. Experience securing and managing grant funding, leading and managing projects and people is essential, as is a flexible working approach and well-developed interpersonal, verbal and written skills.
You will be a member of the Interdisciplinary Research in Health Sciences team (IRIHS) led by Professor Trish Greenhalgh and Professor Sara Shaw which is based in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Primary Care Building, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG
The position is funded for 3 years in the first instance.
