Vacancy: Qualitative Research Fellow, University of Edinburgh


Reading Time: 1 minute

Based in the University of Edinburgh’s Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics, this post offers an exciting opportunity to work on a qualitative study exploring whether health professionals and women would be willing to take part in a future randomised controlled trial to establish the best method to deliver preterm babies. This study will comprise interviews with health professionals and focus groups with women who are at risk of or have had a preterm birth.

Applicants must have a PhD in a social science or health-related discipline (or relevant equivalent experience). The post would offer a great career development opportunity for an early career researcher and the post-holder will be encouraged and supported to publish from this study. The post is full- time at UE07, available from 1st May 2019 (or as soon as possible thereafter) and is fixed term for 18 months.
