The University of Bradford is establishing a Centre for Digital Innovations in Health & Social Care and is seeking an ambitious researcher to support the development of the Centre. This multidisciplinary centre will undertake high quality co-created applied research that (i) informs the design and implementation of new technologies in national and international health and care systems; and (ii) explores the impact of such technologies on patients, service users, carers, and health and social care professionals. Using theory-driven approaches for design and evaluation, the Centre's research will offer an understanding of the contextual factors that impact the success of an innovation, informing both future technology design and its implementation. Research in the Centre will be mixed method, combining qualitative data that delivers deep insight with the quantitative data that policymakers want.
This is a three-year tenure track position. In years 1 and 2, the post holder will be expected to develop their own programme of research related to digital innovations in health and social care. In year 3, they will have additional responsibilities related to teaching and administration. Subject to meeting defined objectives, at the end of the three years, they will be transferred to an indefinite contract as an Assistant Professor (with the option to apply for promotion to Associate Professor at the same time). You will have a PhD in a subject area relating to health services research/applied health research or social care. You will also have experience of contributing to the design and/or evaluation of digital innovations in health or social care.
