Researcher Opportunities @ University of Worcester

Looking for research opportunities alongside your PhD study?

The University of Worcester is seeking to create a pool of researchers to work on research projects in areas aligned with the research expertise and activities underway within the Institute of Health and Society, University of Worcester.

These areas include:

  • health and wellbeing (adult mental ill-health, living with long-term conditions, patient experience),
  • dementia,
  • working well
  • violence prevention.
  • We have a particular interest in researchers with experience of applied research and those familiar with the adoption of mixed methods approaches. Researchers with an interest in innovative qualitative approaches are also encouraged to apply.

If successful in your application you will be added to our pool of researchers. As and when research projects become available that best match with your skill set and the role you have applied for, you will be approached to work on the project. The projects will vary in length (normally from 3 – 6 months), in most instances will be externally funded, and may require full-time or part-time working.

This post will be aligned with research activities underway across the Institute and will involve working on one or more specific research project, usually under the general supervision of a project leader. Given the applied nature of our research within the Institute, we are looking for experience in relation to mixed methods approaches to research, with a particular focus on qualitative research methods.

The project leader will depend on the research work being supported, but all arrangements for management and supervision will be overseen by Professor Eleanor Bradley (Director of Research, Institute of Health and Society).

The post-holder will be expected to manage their own activities and prioritise their own workload within agreed objectives to ensure that all activities are completed to deadlines. The post-holder may be required to write up research work for publication in collaboration with senior colleagues and disseminate results as appropriate to their discipline by, for example, conference presentations and peer reviewed publication.

We have the following opportunities available:

Research Assistant (Band 5)

Research Associate (Band 6)

Research Fellow (Band 7)
