Applicants will have completed a health or social care related postgraduate training course at Master's level equivalent to merit or distinction with a substantial research training component (such as an ESRC recognised training course), or be willing to undertake additional research methods training. We are keen to attract either full or part-time applications from people working in health and social care organisations. Given the current situation with COVID-19  we will, therefore, consider applications that may start later in the academic year in January 2021.
