Bridging Fellow in Medical Humanities

Durham, United Kingdom
£37,099 - £39,347 per annum + per annum
Closing date
16 Apr 2024

Applications are invited for the role of Bridging Fellow in Medical Humanities.

Bridging Fellowships provide an intensive career development opportunity for three recently completed PhD graduates to publish findings from their doctoral research, expand their skills and networks, and prepare their next major research projects. Bridging Fellowships are so-named because they are intended to constitute a bridge between doctoral research and future careers.

All Bridging Fellows will be appointed to the Institute for Medical Humanities as well as one of the academic Departments listed above. Day-to-day, Bridging Fellows will be based initially in one of the Discovery Research Platform's six methods Labs. They will be encouraged to engage with research and activity across the Platform.

Lab activities may include but are not limited to: regular participation in Lab meetings, workshops and other events; collaboration in methodological innovation with interdisciplinary and cross-sector partners through a range of modalities; the design and delivery of pilot and proof-of-concept studies; and taking shared responsibility for sustaining a flourishing research culture in the Lab and Platform more broadly. Bridging Fellows will be supported to produce outputs from existing research, as well as to collaborate with other Labs and Researchers across the Platform. Regular participation (in-person as well as virtual) in Lab and Platform activities, as agreed with the Line Manager, is essential.

These roles offer an exciting opportunity to make an important contribution to the development of research and methodological innovation within the Discovery Research Platform for Medical Humanities, while allowing you excellent opportunities to develop your career in an exciting and progressive institution.

All staff employed in the DRP-IMH have dedicated time for professional development and can access a wealth of existing and bespoke training opportunities in consultation with Platform Leads.
