Researchers in Residence

Evidence suggests that creating better relationships between researchers and commissioners is the most influential factor in getting research into practice. To help foster these relationships we offer the Researcher in Residence fellowship.

The Researcher in Residence role facilitates the Knowledge Mobilisation initiative in primary healthcare.

The Researcher in Residence will have a key role in:

  • identifying NHS research questions that are relevant to commissioners’ interests
  • acting as a conduit between NHS staff with research ideas and the academic community
  • developing ideas into grant applications, focusing specifically on National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded schemes.

Researchers can be seconded for 3-12 months part-time, to be negotiated on successful appointment. The role will be based in our Clinical Effectiveness & Research team.

Opportunities will be advertised here.
