The purpose of the post is to give research experience to front-line practitioners in primary care and the community to deepen their understanding of evidence based practice and develop their research skills so that they will be able to formulate research questions, identify the appropriate methodology to answer these and take forward their own projects as well as collaborate in future studies.
 
This post offers an excellent opportunity for a frontline primary care clinician (GP, practice nurse, community nurse) or other established community practitioner - in public health, mental health, (psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse or clinical psychologist), child health, physiotherapy or pharmacy - to join a research group working within the academic centres of primary care, public health, child health or mental health within Population Health Sciences (PHS) in Bristol Medical School (BRMS).
 
The 18-month post will enable hands-on experience of research methods and the capacity to collaborate with academic researchers in PHS. Depending on the research group and specific research project, the methods could include systematic review/meta-analysis, survey design and conduct, quantitative and/or qualitative data collection and analysis, proposal writing, conference presentations and paper writing. To complement the hands-on experience of research, the post-holder will have access to relevant short courses delivered in PHS.
