  • Yorkshire Cancer Research Career Development Fellowship

    Code: (HY0216)

    There are 3 posts available, all of which will be part of the ‘TRANSFORMing Cancer Outcomes in Yorkshire - funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research’ programme.

    This post is fixed term for 5 years.

    Cancer outcomes are poorer in Yorkshire than in England as a whole and especially poor in Hull. People with higher socioeconomic status have substantially better health than those with lower socioeconomic status; this is also true of cancer outcomes. Yorkshire Cancer Research has awarded the University of Hull a £4.9m programme of research to tackle these cancer inequalities. As a result of this investment we are seeking to recruit five applied health scientists as career development fellows to take forward applied cancer research. These prestigious fellowships will address key gaps in knowledge related to inequalities in experience of and outcomes from cancer, especially related to age and socio-economic differences in the following three areas: early diagnosis and detection, patient management, survivorship and palliative care. 

    Each of these fellowships will be accompanied by an attractive package to support research and personal development and the expectation is that the postholders will use these fellowships to establish themselves as independent applied heath researchers with expertise in cancer and outcomes and /or care. 

    The University of Hull has ambitious plans for research growth to become a world leader in applied health and clinical research, and to conduct outstanding research of relevance to our local area. This vision is being enabled by a £28m investment by the University in a new Health Campus development and the establishment of an Institute for Clinical and Applied Health Research (ICAHR), dovetailing with the Yorkshire Cancer Research award. The formation of the Institute is supported by a major investment in academic staff and the establishment of strong methods and support infrastructure. The Yorkshire Cancer Research Career Development Fellows will be based in this new Institute, either within the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) or the School of Health and Social Work (SHSW) depending on the best fit of the Fellow. Both are Schools within the Faculty of Health Sciences, which also includes the School of Life Sciences. It will be based within the new Allam Medical Building which opened in Summer 2017. 

    To discuss this role informally, please contact Professor Una Macleod; una.macleod@hyms.ac.uk, 01482 463757, or Professor Miriam Johnson; Miriam.johnson@hyms.ac.uk, 01482 463309, or Professor Mike Lind; m.j.lind@hull.ac.uk, 01482 461318
