Health Services Researcher (Realist Review)
Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford
Grade 7: £30,434 - £37,394 p.a.
Applications are invited for a health services researcher to work on a realist review of interventions to improve antimicrobial prescribing of doctors in training. The project is the result of collaboration between the University of Oxford, University of Exeter and Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry
The role allows the candidate to manage their own academic research, get involved in project management and coordinate multiple aspects of work. With the project team, you will execute a realist review (with methodological training and support if needed), which includes developing and refining a programme theory; search strategies; accessing, selecting and reviewing research papers; managing databases; analysing and synthesising data and refining theories as appropriate.
You will have a relevant PhD (or equivalent qualification), together with relevant experience, (especially in secondary research); be able to manage academic research and associated activities, with an ability to tolerate the ambiguity, uncertainties and non-linear processes intrinsic to realist reviews.
The post is full-time, fixed-term to 30 November 2016 and would ideally start from 1 June 2015.
Please contact Dr Geoff Wong at: [log in to unmask] if you would like to discuss the role prior to submitting an application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 8 April 2015. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 22 April 2015.
