As part of a key strategic development, the Hull York Medical School and Department of Health Sciences are seeking to appoint a Professor of Global Health. The focus of our recruitment is to appoint an outstanding research leader in global health, strengthening the partnership between the Hull York Medical School and Department of Health Sciences. If appointed you will conduct research within the Department of Health Sciences and contribute teaching and leadership of the Hull York Medical School.
Background to the appointment
Demographic, economic and epidemiological transitions worldwide are accelerating premature morbidity and mortality from chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The emergence of chronic NCDs imposes high health, societal, and economic burdens that disproportionately affect those in low resource settings. We are committed to generating high quality evidence that helps to address important global challenges in NCD. This appointment will strengthen and expand research to tackle the burden of chronic NCDs in low- and middle-income countries.
We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with strong track records in one or more of the following areas of research: trials, large datasets, implementation science, epidemiology, policy research, health economics, observational studies, systematic reviews or evidence synthesis.
The role is available to clinically or non-clinically qualified applicants.
Salary will be commensurate with experience on the professorial scale, current minimum £62,585 per annum.
Closing date: 25 March 2018
Interviews will be held in York on: 30 April 2018
