Postdoctoral Research Associate (Fuse)
The successful candidate will also engage with citizenship activities associated with SPHR and Fuse. They will work with Prof Carolyn Summerbell in Durham, and co-investigators at Newcastle University, UCL and Imperial. The project started in September 2021 and is due to complete on 31st March 2022. Due to the impact of Covid-19 on the project, and (separately) staff promotions and changes, we are now in a position to appoint two postdoctoral researchers to help complete the project.
Background to research project: The development of health systems for CYP across public health, the NHS, education and social care in the 42 STP/ICS footprints as part of the NHS Long Term Plan has the potential to dramatically improve health and well-being for CYP in England. However there is great variation in the extent to which STP/ICSs have focused on CYP, and in their plans for the future. We aim to work with STP/ICS CYP leaders and children and young people to map out who is doing what and where, what the key components are for understanding how effective integrated systems for CYP work, and whether they improve health outcomes.
This post is for a fixed term with an end date of 31st March 2022 - the funding is available for this fixed period only.
