There are two posts available, one fixed-term for 28 months and the other fixed-term for 19 months. Please see the job description for the duties for each post.
The posts are available part-time, at 80% FTE, from 01 March 2019.
The Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences is seeking two postdoctoral qualitative researchers to work on a new study led by Dr Melissa Stepney and members of the HERG group. These new posts have arisen through funding by the National Institute for Health Research HS&DR programme awarded to Dr Stepney. The project aims to improve the care and support for trans and gender diverse young people and their families.
The postholders will conduct and analyse qualitative interviews with children and young adults who are trans and gender diverse; families of gender diverse children and ‘gateway’ health professionals (GPs and CAMHS professionals). This work will inform the development of two major resources for young people and families which will be published on the award-winning website healthtalk.org.
You will be a qualitative social scientist with experience of collecting data through interviews, preferably in a health setting, and using theory-driven approaches to analysis. You will have particular experience of interviewing young people and/or experience of researching sensitive topics. Experience and/or knowledge of LGBTQ+ (specifically trans and gender diverse) issues would be a distinct advantage.
