A unique and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Associate to work between Cardiff University School of Healthcare Sciences and the Royal College of Nursing. Working with Professor Daniel Kelly, RCN Chair of Nursing Research, the postholder will conduct research and help to secure funding for research that addresses contemporary challenges facing Nursing and health systems.
Research projects will address priority issues such as staff retention, role innovations and patient safety. There will also be a focus on research into the public image of nursing. It is expected that collaborative national and international research opportunities will be established.
The exact focus of the work programme will be agreed in partnership with RCN Wales, and there will be an opportunity for PhD supervision as well as for other relevant professional development.
In REF 2021 90% of the research conducted at Cardiff University was classified as world-leading or internationally excellent. The School of Healthcare Sciences at Cardiff University is a vibrant and impactful research and education community within a Russell Group environment that values innovative thinking and collaborative working. The Wales Centre for evidence based care, is located within the school. There are three research themes which allow for a wide range of health research to be conducted.
The Wales Centres for Evidence based care is located within the School, and three research themes allow for a wide range of health research to be conducted. This post will be aligned within the Optimising Service Delivery and Organisation theme, but cross cutting opportunities with other themes may arise.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and creative individual with a passion for health research, strong time management skills, attention to detail and an ability to meet deadlines without close supervision. We require demonstrable skills in grant writing, academic publication, and presentation of research findings to academic and professional audiences.
Whilst clinical experience, or a professional qualification, in nursing may be helpful, they are not essential. Skills in social sciences, organisational research or workforce policy research, or related fields, are also relevant. This role is eligible to be offered on a blended working basis, meaning that as well as spending time working on campus you can also choose to spend some time working from another location, e.g. your home. The University is committed to offering this flexibility, wherever the role and business need allows, supporting work-life balance.
We strongly encourage informal enquiries, and these should be directed to Professor Daniel Kelly firstname.lastname@example.org.
This post is fixed term for a period of three years until 2 October 2026, and is full-time (35 hours per week).
