This new, innovative post is part of the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) for Yorkshire and Humber. You will make a major contribution to implementation research and associated knowledge translation activity led by the Translating Knowledge into Action theme in CLAHRC. This will involve working closely with other CLAHRC themes in ScHARR and the Universities of Leeds and York, and with partner health and social care organisations and industry across the region.
You will both lead and contribute to implementation research projects across CLAHRC intended to develop and enhance an understanding of knowledge translation in healthcare. You will work collaboratively with health and social care partners to improve the uptake, application and influence of research on policy making and practice, both at a regional and national level.
You will have the opportunity to develop innovative approaches to knowledge translation acting as a knowledge broker between researchers and potential research users (commissioners, managers, clinicians, patients), shaping these communities and building effective linkages between them.
