We are seeking to appoint a talented qualitative researcher to assist the multi-disciplinary team conducting a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) National School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) funded collaborative study ‘Understanding antibiotic prescribing patterns in out-of-hours primary care’. The study is led by Dr Rebecca Barnes (University of Bristol) and Professor Geraldine Leydon (University of Southampton). The post-holder will be based in the Centre for Academic Primary Care, Population Health Sciences within Bristol Medical School.

The post will suit researchers with training in qualitative methods of data collection and analysis, and some experience of undertaking applied health research or working with data from a healthcare setting.

Knowledge and understanding of conversation analytic methods would also be highly beneficial. Applicants will want to develop and extend their careers by playing a key role in a collaborative multi-disciplinary project (Southampton, Bristol, UCL and Oxford) and gaining experience in collecting, managing and analysing large naturalistic datasets of primary care practitioner-patient interactions out-of-hours.

Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Rebecca Barnes, Senior Research Fellow 0117 9287213,
