Healthcare Research

The School of Healthcare delivers high quality, interdisciplinary applied research and research-led teaching, complemented by major strengths in applied health research across the University of Leeds. Our research underpins policy, practice and education and makes a positive difference to health and well-being. We have a strong focus on interdisciplinary collaboration and service user and carer involvement in research projects. We have one overarching grouping for our research activity: Long-Term Conditions and Self-Management (LTC&SM), particularly among older people. This is organised into five topic areas; pain and cancer care, medicines management, wound management, mental health and maternal, child and family health. In addition we have two areas that cut across projects; decision making and methodological development. You will benefit from existing research infrastructure and be part of a growing number of Research/Senior Research fellows based in the school.

We are seeking high calibre, collaborative individuals whose research interests complement the academic activities of the School of Healthcare.

You will be highly motivated and have a sustained track record of high quality healthcare or related research. You will demonstrate a clear aptitude for developing innovative, collaborative research projects on a trajectory to support their academic career. You should also have experience in teaching delivery and assessment and be prepared to take a leadership role as part of the education community.
