Do you want to be part of a supportive and inclusive team focussed on improving health care quality and safety?
Do you want to demonstrate your skills and develop them further, whilst making a difference in patient care?
We are seeking a health or care services researcher with a passion for patient safety, implementation or improvement science. We have a band 6 research fellow post available within our small and supportive Improvement Science team of the NIHR Yorkshire and Humber Applied Research Collaboration (NIHR YHARC). The YHARC is one of 15 ARCs across the country; ARCs foster collaboration between NHS, social care, third sector and industry organisations, and leading universities. Our research team is all about improving the quality and safety of health and social care services. Our team has expertise in health services research, improvement and behavioural science and the development and evaluation of complex interventions. We work with the other themes within the NIHR YHARC - older people, healthy childhood, mental health and urgent care - to support them to include improvement science methods within their projects. We also have an objective to develop improvement science skills within the region.
Our team sits within a wider research network: the Yorkshire Quality and Safety Research group (https://yqsr.org/). This successful group of researchers has established a national and international reputation for working collaboratively across institutions and disciplines to deliver research that makes healthcare safer. The group comprises researchers and leading academics from the Universities of Leeds, York and Bradford teamed with clinicians and managers from the Yorkshire and Humber health community, with the ultimate aim of making a real impact on the way health services are delivered. We are all part of the Bradford Institute for Health Research. This post, therefore, provides a great opportunity to also collaborate with colleagues in these teams and to further develop your research career.
If you a health services researcher but are unfamiliar with the term Improvement Science, you may find it helpful to view our Improvement Science snapshot series to get further insight into the methods and approaches we use: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaUHM9a-DQN00r7YmguFvwUS68zU7H5Q5
This is a great time to join the team, with the opportunity to shape the next phase of research projects that we take on, depending on your interests. Whatever the project, critical to the role will be an inclusive approach to engaging with patients and clinicians to optimise study design, data collection, and the impact of your findings.
We welcome contact from interested applicants. So, if you would like to know more about these roles, please contact the Improvement Science Programme Manager, Dr Andria Hanbury: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can offer staff gymnasiums on both hospital sites, excellent pension scheme and advice on childcare.
