    This post is available as a result of a research grant from Yorkshire Cancer Research to improve lung cancer diagnosis.  In this project, we are developing and testing a theoretically driven community-primary care linked intervention to improve both presentation to GPs by patients with potential lung cancer symptoms and referral of these patients, thereby reducing the proportion diagnosed with advanced cancer.  This post has been created to work within this project to conduct ethnographic studies.  We plan to use a focused ethnographic method to identify and describe everyday views and narratives of lung cancer in Hull and determine whether and how these narratives change over the course of the intervention.  We will recruit established community organisations, some of whom we have already worked with, to participate in the study.  In addition, observation and interviews will be carried out within some of the GP practices in our study. 

    The post will be based initially within the Supportive care, Early Diagnosis and Advanced disease (SEDA) research group which is part of the 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. 

    You will be educated to PhD level and have expertise in health service research methodologies and qualitative research data collection and analysis in particular. 

    The Hull York Medical School holds a Silver Athena SWAN award.  We value diversity and we are committed to recruiting and supporting staff and students from all sectors of society.
