Research Fellow

We are seeking a highly motivated Research Fellow with systematic review expertise to join a team undertaking a mixed methods evidence synthesis, for a fixed term (15 month) project funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Programme. The evidence synthesis will identify cost effective education and information interventions for people living with early chronic kidney disease (CKD), including consultation with people managing CKD, their carers and health professionals to expose current practice and co-create research priorities.  

The post is based at the University of Salford but provides an excellent opportunity to work collaboratively with the NIHR PenARC  Evidence Synthesis Team, an expert group based at the University of Exeter. The researcher will be expected to synthesise qualitative and quantitative evidence to inform the development and implementation of health policy, contribute to the production of high-quality publications, gaining significant knowledge and guidance working alongside leaders in the evidence synthesis field.  You will also gain experience of running a Study Within a Review (SWAR).

Please note that interviews are expected to take place week commencing 4th March 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Support the design and conduct of systematic reviews to high (publishable) standards and to agreed deadlines, in order to support national health policy development and evaluation, working closely across institutions in Salford and the PenARC Evidence Synthesis Team in Exeter.
  • Act as either lead and at times second reviewer, working closely with a senior researcher and service topic/content experts (including patients and members of the public), policy customers, and methods experts where necessary.
  • Write up the systematic reviews clearly for a variety of audiences – Department of Health and Social Care, policy makers, NHS, academic (i.e. journal articles), and the general public.
  • Present the findings of the reviews, or the required innovations in review methods, to relevant audiences e.g. at academic conferences or stakeholder events.
  • Keep up to date with current NHS structures, policies, networks and management practices and help identify potential topic or service experts/managers as advisers to our reviews.
  • Identify opportunities and manage national stakeholder consultation within the evidence synthesis.
  • Support and help organise expert stakeholder/adviser engagement meetings or other complementary engagement activities.
