Fixed Term
Full Time

This post is part of the ‘TRANSFORMing Cancer Outcomes in Yorkshire - funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research’ programme.

This post is fixed term for 3 years.

Cancer outcomes are poorer in Yorkshire than in England as a whole, and are especially poor in Hull. People with higher socioeconomic status have substantially better health than those with lower socioeconomic status; this is also true in relation to cancer outcomes. Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) has awarded the University of Hull a £4.9m programme of research to tackle these cancer inequalities. We aim to address key gaps in knowledge related to inequalities in experience of and outcomes from cancer, especially related to age and socio-economic differences, in the following areas: early diagnosis and detection, patient management, survivorship and palliative care.

This doctoral fellowship provides an opportunity to undertake a fully funded PhD embedded within this programme and with the support and mentorship of colleagues within the programme, the Medical School and University. The doctoral fellow will be a nurse with experience relevant to the care of people with cancer. He/she will demonstrate a commitment to the pursuit of excellence in research, and work towards the completion of a PhD thesis in the broad topic area of cancer nursing. 

To discuss this role informally, please contact Dr Judith Dyson;, 01482 463808.
