I've just advertised an interesting vacancy for a post-doc Research Fellow to work with our NIHR funded programme of work on Complexity, Patient Experience and Organizational Behaviour. The Fellow will mainly work on two projects, the first is developing an implementation analysis in relation to a large clinical trial. We will have a plethora of interview data relating to how people understand and use an everyday health technology, how clinicians make decisions about its use, and about how the marketplace for the technology is organized. We're developing an interesting analytic framework that links micro approaches to the affordances of technologies to macro level analyses of market structuration. The second project is a large scale qualitative meta-synthesis that will look at patient careers through complex illness trajectories towards the end of life. Here the Fellow will support two clinical academic fellows as they develop the review, and work to support the development of a conceptual model of complex illness trajectories that could be the foundation for further research.This is really interesting stuff, and for a recent PhD interested in integrating theoretical development with real data about important problems this combination of projects - both of which ought to produce several publications - could easily be a goldmine. Check out the further particulars on the University of Southampton website and see if the post is the right one for you.
