Current vacancies

  • Senior Lecturer or Lecturer in Health Inequalities

    Ref: HY0049 or HY0050
    • Reference: HY0049 or HY0050
    • Main location: Hull Campus
    • Salary: Band 8 or Band 9
    • Closing date: 02 December 2014

    This post is full time and is available at either Senior Lecturer (Band 9) or Lecturer (Band 8) dependent on experience.  

    The University of Hull has recently announced a substantial investment to enable a step change in the University’s research and enterprise performance, in line with its strategic ambition.  The investment includes the establishment of an Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research.  This post is one of the first appointments to be made to this Institute, which will be housed within a new build on our health campus (due for completion end of 2016).  As part of this investment we plan to significantly expand our clinical and applied population health and health services research, focusing more on large studies aimed at understanding and improving health and health care in the local population. 

    Our current research includes work on understanding inequalities for cancer patients at diagnosis and towards the end of life, and work on exploring the ways in which the new NHS structures are able to address inequalities.  This is an area of particular relevance for our local population and so we plan to expand it.  The local population is stable and there are therefore significant opportunities to develop population based studies to understand the best mechanisms for health care which would have an impact in reducing inequalities.  We would welcome interest in this post from those with an interest in understanding the social determinants of health, in studying the variation in health services and outcomes, or in developing health related interventions to reduce health inequalities. 

    The post will be based within the Supportive care, Early Diagnosis and Advanced disease (SEDA) research group which is part of the HYMS Academic Centre for Health and Population Sciences and is based on the University of Hull campus.  The overall aim of research in SEDA is to apply rigorous health service research methods to understanding issues related to cancer diagnosis, supportive care, advanced disease and end of life issues.  We work very closely with colleagues in the Department of Health Sciences in York where the York based staff of Centre for Health and Population Sciences are embedded. 

    To discuss this role informally, please contact Prof Una Macleod, Email, telephone 01482 463482.
