Academic

  • Module Leader

    Code: (BL0075)

    The Hull University Business School develops people and practices for a fast-changing and interconnected world. The school is an international community which, to echo our vision and mission, behaves with friendliness, openness, responsibility and integrity. The University delivers an online portfolio of master’s degree programmes under the brand name Hull Online. These programmes are delivered in association with a collaborative partner, Cambridge Education Group (CEG), who assists with recruitment, marketing, course design and course build. There are currently 6 programmes in the online portfolio and the University has ambitious plans to add several more. All programmes are taught on a flexible, part-time basis over two years within a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Canvas. Students can study the same degree as they would on campus without interrupting income and career progression. Programmes are delivered wholly online.

    This post is for an academic to lead the Information Management and Visualisation module, which will introduce students to information management principles in the context of business decisions. The module places a lot of emphasis on information visualisation and visual thinking in the broader management sense. Case-based explorations will need to be developed to create hands-on opportunities to reflect on data principles and the key distinction between data and information. How can managers move from the different possibilities that data create in order to generate meaningful information in a business context? These explorations will be done through specialised software like Qlik or Tableau but no coding is required for students. Overall, the module is taking a management approach to information, reflecting critically on the value of data in business, understanding the impact of data, and exploring different forms of data visualisation for business decisions.

    Applicants will have a sound knowledge of sophisticated qualitative and quantitative methods for decision making, with an emphasis in information visualisation and be familiar with Qlik or Tableau. The post-holder will initially develop content for the module (at 0.4 FTE for six months) and then act as module leader when the module is live in delivery (0.2 FTE for 15 weeks). Please note, as this is an online programme, candidates do not have to be based in Hull.

    For informal enquiries, please contact Prof. Nishikant Mishra, Subject Group Head for the Logistics and Management Systems subject group (Nishikant.Mishra@hull.ac.uk) or Programme Director, Dr. Dionysios Demetis (D.Demetis@hull.ac.uk)

    As well as an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Engineering, Chemical or Mechanical Engineering or related discipline, you will need:  

    • excellent time management skills for yourself and to progress the project that you will lead,

Research VACANCIES

  • Research Associate in Palliative Care

    Code: (HY0316)

    Cancer outcomes are poorer in Yorkshire than in England as a whole and are especially poor in Hull.  People with higher socioeconomic status have substantially better health than those with lower socioeconomic status; this is also true in relation to cancer outcomes.   Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) has awarded the University of Hull a £4.9m programme of research to tackle these inequalities in early diagnosis and detection, patient management, survivorship and palliative care.  More information about how we are addressing these key gaps in knowledge, especially related to age and socio-economic differences, can be found on our website: https://www.hyms.ac.uk/research/transform

    This project will focus on people nearing the end of life who have a high risk of delirium. Delirium causes severe distress for patients and families, anxiety and stress for health and care staff, and poor clinical outcomes. However, clinical guidelines for the identification and management of delirium (e.g. NICE, SIGN, ACSQ) are only partly-implemented. This study will address the guideline implementation challenge of how to bring together practical support (e.g. screening tools and clinical pathways) and communication between family and friends, volunteers, and a wide range of health and care professionals. The study will: 1.use experience-based co-design to refine an implementation strategy for guideline-adherent delirium care; 2.conduct a realist evaluation using Normalisation Process Theory to assess the acceptability and flexibility of using the implementation strategy at three sites in Yorkshire; and 3.conduct a feasibility study to demonstrate the potential for a future quasi-experimental evaluation.

    This exciting post provides the opportunity to conduct implementation research using a range of methods as part of a broader programme of palliative and cancer care research. The post-holder will: 1.Contribute to obtaining ethical and research governance approval 2.Conduct experience-based co-design workshops 3.Use a realist approach and theory to structure the collection (surveys, interviews) and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data about implementation (e.g. fidelity to core and adaptable components) and feasibility (e.g. recruitment, use of screening tools). The study will underpin future grant proposals to evaluate implementation in delirium care as well as in palliative care more broadly. 

    Depending on pandemic restrictions that may be in place at the time, travel to study sites in Yorkshire for workshops and data collection will be required

    The post will be based within the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre (https://hyms.ac.uk/research/research-centres-and-groups/wolfson) at Hull York Medical School, within the Faculty of Health Sciences at University of Hull and based on the University of Hull campus. As one of the few dedicated palliative care research centres in the UK, the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre provides excellent opportunities for career development in palliative care research.

    In your covering letter please refer directly to the criteria given in the person specification below. Applications are assessed by the selection panel according to these criteria. You should indicate in your cover letter whether you wish to be considered for flexibility in working hours, pattern and/or location. 

    Post HY0316 Research Associate should be read in conjunction with post HY0317 Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. Only one post will be appointed to at the appropriate level. If you wish to be considered for all positions, you will need to submit a separate online application form for each position.

    Before submitting an application you may wish to discuss the post further by contacting Dr Mark Pearson (Senior Lecturer in Implementation Science; mark.pearson@hyms.ac.uk) or Prof. Miriam Johnson (Professor of Palliative Medicine; miriam.johnson@hyms.ac.uk).
