This post offers an excellent opportunity for an experienced quantitative researcher to join the primary care infection group led by Professor Alastair Hay (GP, NIHR Research Professor and Professor of Primary Care), in the stimulating and highly successful Centre for Academic Primary Care in the School of Social and Community Medicine.
You will be joining a 15-strong group, who include a Research Fellow, a Trial Manager, five Research Associates/Assistants, two Research Coordinators, a Research Nurse, a PhD student and four Research Administrators. Together, our success is built on the talent and commitment of our staff; our focus on impactful applied health research with high quality publications; our inter-disciplinary links within the School of Social and Community Medicine and across the University of Bristol; and our collaborative links with like-minded researchers at the Universities of Oxford, Southampton and Cardiff. With these three centres, we have an active multicentre research portfolio of nine studies valued at £14M, three of which are led by Bristol and valued at £4.4M (see ‘Additional Information’).
Supervised by Professor Hay, you will play an instrumental role in the ongoing success of the group, with the two main purposes of your post being: (i) to develop NIHR grant applications that are relevant to NHS primary care infection priorities and which will be hosted by Bristol CCG; and (ii) lead the Bristol Centre contribution to the multicentre studies led by Chief Investigators in our collaborating Centres.
This is a new position and the appointment will be on Grade K of the University’s grade structure, depending on experience. The post is open to researchers with a strong background in health care research studies and an interest in health services delivery. The post is offered from as soon after 1 March 2015 as possible, for 24 months in the first instance, although it is likely there will be opportunities to continue working in the School beyond this date.
For further information about this post and/or informal discussion please contact Professor Alastair Hay (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 0117 331 4554.
Interview date: Friday 27th February 2015
