Job description

Job summary

The research project forms part of a wider work programme of applied public health research funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) School for Public Health Research Programme (SPHR). SPHR is a unique collaboration between eight leading academic centres of excellence in England.

The project sits within the SPHR Health Inequalities theme, which is designed to ensure sufficient consideration of health inequalities within SPHR and generating evidence on relevant solutions and barriers. Working in close collaboration with our academic and practice partners and the public, we will synthesise evidence on how to reduce local health inequalities through action on the social determinants of health.

Duties and responsibilities

Using systematic review methods and input from SPHR colleagues as well as patient and public representatives, you will lead an evidence synthesis programme over one year on how to reduce local health inequalities. The aim of this work is to advance understanding of effects of interventions to reduce health inequalities based on interventions around the social determinants of health.

You will be a member of the research and will plan and undertake systematic data collection of published literature. You will assess the quality of returned literature and liaise with other researchers working on related research. You will also be responsible for planning, conducting and narrative and quantitative syntheses of findings and reporting structured interviews with stakeholders.

Essential requirements

You must hold a PhD or equivalent in population health, epidemiology, global health, biostatistics, or a related subject

The ideal candidate will have experience of systematic reviews and synthesis of the literature and working successfully in interdisciplinary teams and environments that combine novel methods and applications

Your knowledge of quantitative/statistical methods and superior ability to understand and effectively present complex concepts and data, especially for scientific data will place you in good stead for this post.

Further information

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477- £38,566 per annum.
