Senior Research Fellow/Programme Manager
- University of Leeds
- Location: Leeds, United Kingdom
- Job Number: 7091384 (Ref #: MHIHS1299)
- Posting Date: Jan 6, 2022
Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in applied health research? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?
We wish to recruit a Senior Research Fellow to work on a programme of work to better understand why people attend emergency services on a frequent basis, evaluate the specialist services that are provided for frequent users of emergency services and help standardise and improve these current services. The grant is funded by the National Institute for Health Research through Health Services and Delivery Research. The post holder will manage the overall programme, co-ordinate the activities of associated research staff, and play a key role in the successful completion of the various work packages.
This programme has four work streams. The first involves mapping current services for frequent users of emergency services. The second involves using large NHS datasets to identify patterns of frequent attendance and the evaluation of current services for frequent users. Workstream 3 consists to identify and test programme theories about how interventions for subgroups of frequent users produce outcomes and will include a literature review and in-depth case studies of 4 ED sites. The final workstream involves the development of an implementation framework of ideal models of service delivery tailored for different types of frequent user services.
In order to undertake this role, you will have an understanding of NHS services including mental health and emergency services, and experience that equips you to manage a large-scale research project, co-ordinating the delivery of multiple projects in a healthcare setting.
You should be familiar with NHS ethics and governance arrangements and be familiar with both quantitative and qualitative methods in applied health research. Ideally, you should have some experience of working with large data (e.g. Hospital Episodes Statistics) and be familiar with the governance arrangements and processes involved in the acquisition of such data.
The post is based in Leeds but the study also involves close collaboration with research colleagues at the Universities of Sheffield, York and Exeter. Other researchers employed on the programme will be based in both the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield.
