Chair in Applied Health Research
University of Dundee -School of Nursing
The University of Dundee is proud to be recognised as one of the UK’s leading universities: consistently rated as one of the best for medical education in the UK, it has internationally recognised strengths in biomedical sciences, medical research and health informatics with over 80% of its research coming in these areas. Recent years has seen a period of fundamental change for the University, realigning its resources – intellectual, financial and physical – as well as building on existing research and educational strengths to ensure success in the dynamic and competitive Higher Education sector, including recently completing a £200 million redevelopment programme to create state of the art platforms for teaching, research and partnership activities.
These are exciting times for the School of Nursing which forms a vital part of the College of medicine, dentistry and nursing. Researchers in the school work collaboratively across all disciplines and are currently moving towards setting up an exclusive Centre for Applied Health Research which will provide a focus for all research in applied health. Ensuring excellence is key to our on-going success and with an increasing reputation and expertise in long term conditions and maternal health we are committed to supporting the development of research that will improve health and wellbeing.
Building on this excellent foundation we are seeking to appoint to the new role of Chair in Applied Health Research. A relevant professional background will be advantageous in this role as we seek to further develop capacity, but essential to our success is an established track record in applied health research with a focus on Long Term Conditions.
