We already have a reputation for primary care and community based research and we want to build on this by this appointment. The post is suitable for a clinically qualified researcher (GP, nurse, allied health professional) or a primary health care scientist/applied health researcher. We are developing a research methods hub so would particularly welcome interest from candidates with in-depth expertise in one of the common applied health methodologies.
