Senior Research Fellow in Prevention of Frailty

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for a challenging new senior research position? Are you passionate about delivering world leading health research supporting the development, evaluation and implementation of cutting-edge biomedical and psychosocial innovation? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive Universities? 

The Leeds Centre for Personalised Medicine and Health accelerates the research, evaluation and adoption of new treatments and technologies that move away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach. We aim to improve health in a healthy economy, underpinned by the best research and education. We are committed to driving forward innovative approaches that support the whole person, and shift the focus from one of disease, to one of health.

We are going through an exciting period of growth and change. As part of the Leeds Academic Health Partnership and supported by the University of Leeds and Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network, we are accelerating our ambition to transform the health, wealth and wellbeing of our citizens. Through the development of our ‘precision prevention’ flagship projects, focussed on frailty prevention and the early diagnosis of cancer, we are driving forward a strategy to improve health and care, generate inclusive economic growth and demonstrate academic excellence and impact.

To support our growth, we are seeking an outstanding Senior Research Fellow to drive forward an exciting portfolio of personalised prevention research and implementation studies through biomedical, digital and behavioural interventions. As an integral senior member of the team, you will contribute to the leadership, development and delivery of major new strategic research programmes and make an important contribution to health research and methodological development in the field of frailty prevention. You will lead on grant writing initiatives to secure major funding for ongoing research and sustained income generation.

You will have a relevant PhD and post-doctoral research experience in an academic, industrial (e.g. pharma, medtech, CRO), healthcare, public health or social care setting. You will have published extensively in high impact factor publications and have a strong track record of securing major grant funding.
