Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is offering postdoctoral scholar position in public health. Potential candidates should apply before September 04, 2019.

At THIS Institute we aim to create a world-leading scientific asset for the NHS by strengthening the evidence-base for improving the quality and safety of healthcare. Co-created by two exceptional organisations – the University of Cambridge and the Health Foundation THIS Institute is founded on the guiding principle that efforts to improve care should be based on the highest quality evidence. The institute hosts around 50 staff and has strong links across University of Cambridge departments and with RAND Europe, a not-for-profit Cambridge-based research organisation, and with Homerton College, Cambridge, as well as with multiple external partners.

The successful candidate will work to support a range of research projects concerning the promotion of quality and safety in health care, improving the uptake and spread of good practice, and sustaining improvements in the way that care is delivered, as well as supporting the research infrastructure of THIS Institute. We particularly welcome applications from individuals with a background in pragmatic trials.

The post-holder will be educated to PhD level in health services research, public health, epidemiology, data science or other relevant area, or equivalent experience. You will have the ability to read, critique and synthesise relevant literature, to plan and conduct primary research to a high standard, and to engage with many stakeholders and collaborators in co-production, while working at pace. You will be capable of preparing research protocols, project reports and manuscripts for submission to peer reviewed journals with minimal supervision, and will have strong skills in teamwork.

The funds for this post are available until 30 April 2022 in the first instance.

The post holder will be based at the Clifford Allbutt Building, Cambridge Biomedical Campus, Cambridge CB2 0AH (approximately 2 miles south of city centre).
