This is an opportunity for a highly applied health services researcher to make a practical contribution to reducing health inequalities and improving the health of the population of the North West Coast. You will make a practical contribution to reducing health inequalities and improving the health of the population of the North West Coast. Over the last year, the NIHR CLAHRC NWC Partners have been developing a programme which aims to bring together the expertise of experienced health service researchers with that of commissioners and providers of services in NHS and Local Authority organisations to promote evidence informed decisions about the organisation and delivery of care.
You will become a member of a multidisciplinary research team working in close collaboration with commissioners and providers on this ambitious programme of work to research and evaluate new models of out of hospital treatments and care in order to identify which of the new models being developed by Partners are most effective in reducing health inequalities, improving population health and wellbeing and reducing emergency admissions. You will be expected to play an active role in identifying further research prospects relevant to the research interests of CLAHRC NWC and developing them into grant applications and projects. You will also be expected to make a major contribution to the publication of high quality research papers. Whilst the post is based in central Liverpool, you will be expected to attend meetings and events across the North West Coast area, as well as nationally.
You must have a PhD in Health Services Research, and experience of conducting high quality academic research. You must have a proven ability to engage and manage a wide range of stakeholder groups, including working with the public, as well as project management skills, with a track record of delivering projects on time and within budget. Experience of conducting research in the field of redesign of health services and systems would be an advantage. The posts are available until 31 December 2018.
