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 role is part of this investment, and is a cross-cutting post for an enthusiastic, self-motivated Information Specialist to work with clinical and applied health researchers to take forward the work of the TRANSFORMing Cancer Outcomes in Yorkshire programme. 

To discuss this role informally, please contact Dr Liz Mitchell, Senior Lecturer in Primary Care Research; liz.mitchell@hyms.ac.uk, 01482 467537
