Role Description

Applications are invited for an individual to join the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) as a Senior Lecturer in Patient Safety and Improvement Science. This post represents a new and exciting challenge for a mid-career academic who wants to conduct research and teaching at the cutting edge.

The successful applicant will have a track record of high quality research in an area relevant to patient safety or quality improvement in healthcare and will be expected to grow a research portfolio that has the potential to be recognised internationally and to contribute to the teaching and assessment of HYMS students in these areas.

With an undergraduate degree in the social sciences, psychology or a health related discipline and a PhD in a topic commensurate with the research themes described above, we are looking to appoint a self-motivated academic who wants to work in a multi-professional and inter-disciplinary environment. The successful candidate will be someone who can build collaborative links and who thrives in an environment in which working across boundaries and in collaboration with managers, policy makers, health professionals and patients is essential.

The successful candidate will have a track record in obtaining research funding and will be in a strong position to apply to NIHR and other funding streams. They should have a clear plan for future research in their own field of expertise. We will therefore appoint a candidate who has the drive to develop their research in new directions to respond to regional and national priorities

The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) brings together the strengths of Universities of Hull and York in the life, clinical, health and social sciences.  It works closely with other departments in the Universities and many staff are embedded in jointly managed academic centres in host departments. For this post, the successful candidate will work within the Centre for Health and Population Sciences (CHaPS) in the Department of Health Sciences in the University of York.
