Applications are invited for a joint appointment of a Research Fellow with the Administrative Fairness Lab and the Institute of Mental Health Research, both based at the University of York. This is an exciting opportunity to support the development of an innovative research agenda examining administrative fairness in healthcare settings, under the supervision of Professor Joe Tomlinson, Dr Jed Meers and Professor Lina Gega.
The Administrative Fairness Lab, led out of York Law School, aims to re-shape frontline public decision-making around robust empirical evidence. The Institute of Mental Health Research at York brings together mental health research and practice from over 30 departments, schools and offices at the University of York, whose aim is to improve the lives and care of those who are most vulnerable due to mental health problems.
You will carry out the groundwork for new collaborative projects, which is likely to include conducting literature reviews, organising public and service user consultations via interviews and focus groups, mapping services, and analysing research data.
You will identify suitable funders and sponsors, lead and support the development of grant applications, write for academic and non-academic publications, present at internal and external events, and support junior members of staff.
For informal enquiries: please contact Jed Meers at firstname.lastname@example.org
