Description

Health Services Researcher (BZ21062B)

Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences Grade 7: £33,309 - £40,927 per annum

This role is within the Health Behaviours team (https: // www. phc.ox.ac.uk/research/research-themes/health-behaviours- theme/health-behaviours) as part of a programme of work funded by the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration and funded by the NIHR ARC National Collaboration on Prevention https: // arc-nenc.nihr.ac.uk/our-research- themes/prevention/.

Work within our research team has made a substantial contribution to the evidence base for effective interventions to treat obesity. We recognise, however, that maximising benefit requires implementation, something clinicians will not naturally do. We are looking for a health services researcher and/or implementation scientist to help us both study and embed weight management in health services and to evaluate the outcomes of these services. We have a programme of work funded by the National Collaboration to examine the impact of the national rollout of the incentive scheme. You will play a key role in this programme, liaising with NHS England and other stakeholders in the ARC, and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (replacing PHE).

We are also interested in both interventions in routine primary care for people living with obesity, and in secondary care for people receiving specialist treatment for obesity-related diseases. We envisage work on this programme will include interventions currently offered as part of Tier 2, 3 and 4 services.

There will also be opportunities to engage with research projects in the wider team including systematic reviews, experimental research and clinical trials. We expect and will support the post holder to develop plans and grant applications for external funding.

The Health Behaviours team is a vibrant and expanding group, principally concentrating on intervention studies that aim to achieve healthier and more sustainable diets, reduce the burden of obesity-related disease, or promote smoking cessation. Post holders will provide guidance to junior members of the research group, including research assistants, PhD students, and/or project volunteers.

The post will be available until the end of September 2023 in the first instance because of the end date of the grant, but we will support the postholder in applying for further funding.

Please note that when applying for this post you will also be automatically considered for the position of Mental Health Researcher within the department, so there is no need to submit an application to both posts.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 5th November.

Interviews will be conducted soon after.
