This is a Senior Clinical Lecturer post based within the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health, with a view to this individual commencing their appointment being physically based at the Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Research Programme. If they are clinically active, then clinical duties would be at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre, Malawi, and would be arranged based on the interests of the individual and departmental needs.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally competitive programme of research in the broad area of Global Women’s Health. They would also be expected to provide an important leadership role alongside colleagues forming the Maternal Health Group at the Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Research Programme. They will be expected to collaborate with the existing World Health Organisation initiatives, the National Institute for Health Research, the Medical Research Council and other Malawi, UK and international initiatives, supporting their successful implementation. They will also be encouraged to develop their own independent collaborations both nationally and internationally. They should uphold the aims of the National Institute for Health Research to translate research into benefit for patients and to drive innovation in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of maternal health complications, particularly relating to low resource settings, both globally and within the Merseyside region.
The post holder will be encouraged to focus their research on Malawi and its needs and those of other low- and middle-income settings but can also develop research in Liverpool. The Harris Wellbeing Research Centre provides an outstanding environment within which to develop new research programmes from Liverpool. In addition to the well-established partnership with the Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Clinical Research Centre in Blantyre, Malawi, there are strong programmes such as Children Growing Up in Liverpool (C-GuLL).
