Research Fellow in Water and Health Governance

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have experience of engaging with water and health system governance in your own research field with a particular interest in systems thinking, climate resilience and social equity? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK's leading research-intensive Universities?

We seek a motivated and versatile Research Fellow to help us drive evidence- based changes in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) systems and global health systems to make them more resilient and equitable. You will be working as part of two international consortiums with a wide range of research and impact partners. The role will help deliver the FCDO WASH Systems for Health project and a new NIHR supported project on health systems, extreme weather, and business continuity. Both projects have a primary focus on low- and middle-income country contexts.

Working with Dr Paul Hutchings, Associate Professor in Water, Sanitation and Health, you will be conducting novel research and international impact activities across these projects. This will include designing and delivering desk and field studies on WASH system strengthening initiatives and supporting the establishment of an international learning partnership to share experiences across six countries in South Asia and Africa. It will also involve contributing to research on healthcare system resilience to extreme weather, with a primary task to design and implement a Fuzzy set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (FsQCA) study to compare experiences of extreme weather response across countries. Organising and attending international workshops will be part of the role.

With a PhD (or having submitted your thesis before taking up the role) in a water or health system governance related-area, you will have demonstrated theoretical understanding of governance issues, an ability to learn and apply advanced social science methodologies, and an aptitude to work on policy- relevant issues.

This role will be based at the university of Leeds campus and there is scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.
