Salary Range:

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

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 team, the Medical School and the University. The doctoral fellow will be a GP who has completed training and is developing an academic career.
