Vacancy_CLAHRC YH Senior Research Fellow

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.

Dear Colleague,

I would like to welcome you to the New Year and to the official start of the NIHR CLAHRC for Yorkshire and Humber.

We believe that over the last five years our CLAHRCs have been at the forefront of a new way of working to ensure co-production, partnership engagement in research and evidence implementation. We have already begun to build on this within our new Yorkshire and Humber collaboration.

We know that it will take time to fully engage with all our collaborators old and new. So over the coming weeks and months we will be communicating with you either through the work of the Core Team, by our Communications Lead Dan Wolstenholme, our Themes, our Executive or our Strategic Board.

Our Introduction Brochure has been developed to help you to engage colleagues with the work of the NIHR CLAHRC for Yorkshire and Humber

Please don’t hesitate to contact us in the meantime if you have any queries via email clahrc-yh@sth.nhs.uk

Let the hard work and success begin!

Best wishes,

Professor Sue Mawson

Director of the CLAHRC for Yorkshire and Humber
