Cardiff University has recently been awarded a £3m grant from Health and Care Research Wales to establish the Centre for Adult Social Care Research (CARE). The Centre will bring together multi-disciplinary expertise from across the university, and foster collaboration with experts elsewhere in the UK, to develop cutting-edge research on adult social care, underpinned by substantial UK-level research funding. Dr Paul Willis has been appointed as the first Director of CARE and will take up his post in Autumn 2023.
The development of CARE will be supported by the Children’s Social Care Research and Development Centre (CASCADE), which is the largest research centre of its kind in the UK. CARE offices will be located in the university’s new sbarc | spark building. Sbarc | spark is the first social science research park in the world. Part of the university’s £300m Innovation Campus, this purpose-built facility co-locates world-leading social science researchers with organisations and representatives from the public, third and private sectors - some of which are focused on social care - all working together to address the major complex challenges facing societies.
The Centre is seeking to recruit a Reader who could be based in any school in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Science, depending on expertise. The postholder will contribute to the research record of the School through commitment to carrying out and publishing high quality research. In this role you will also deliver research-led teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, and supervise students. You will also carry out administrative duties within the work area as required and pursue excellence in research, teaching and enterprise and to inspire others to do the same.
This post is full-time (35 hours per week), open-ended and available from the 1st October 2023.
Salary: £70,234 per annum (Grade 9), with 1 annual increment up to £71,639 per annum (final salary at top of grade)
