The University of Derby is currently seeking a Post Doctoral Researcher and Research Fellow in Arts in Health to work for the newly formed Arts in Health Centre of Excellence which is part of the College of Health & Social Care Research Centre (CHSCRC). 

The Research Centre was established in 2014, through funding from NHS England, Derbyshire’s four Clinical Commissioning Groups and matched funding from the University. The Centre’s main activities have focused around the co-design and delivery of projects with the CCGs, securing external funding and delivery of these projects, and a range of REF-related activities.

Going forward, delivering health service evaluations will continue to be a key strand of the Centre’s income generation activity. Alongside this, through close collaboration with the NHS and Clinical Commissioning Groups, and by establishing partnerships with other universities and institutions, the Centre has been working on number of research proposals.

The post doctoral researcher is to have primary responsibility for galvanising research bids from clusters affiliated with the Arts in Health Centre of Excellenceespecially orientated towards UOA03. The fellow will be housed within the College of Health & Social Care Research Centre, but will work with cross-College collaborative research bids and bids originating from College clusters. The research fellow is to have primary responsibility for working with our research fellow on the above.

Both of these positions are three-year full time contracts.
