The vision for this post is to build joint academic-service-policy partnerships between Newcastle University, South Tyneside Council and Public Health England (PHE). The role offers an opportunity to develop and lead a research programme in collaboration with PHE, and the Local Authority, informed by national and local public health needs. You will have a key role in embedding a culture of co-creation, and translating research and evidence into public health practice in the context of healthy ageing. There is the exciting prospect of shaping both national policy, and local policy and practice.
We wish to identify current and future leaders in the field of Public Health with potential research excellence in the areas of healthy ageing, complex health needs and long-term conditions. This new post is a significant opportunity for a talented enthusiastic Intermediate Fellow/ Consultant in Public Health to join a well-established and leading centre of public health research at the Population Health Sciences Institute at Newcastle University and the progressive and sector-leading South Tyneside Council.
The Institute is keen to build up academic and specialist capacity in the field of public health and so is keen to recruit an ambitious and committed academic who is on the GMC Specialist Register/GDC Specialist List/UK Public Health Register (UKPHR) for Public Health Specialists.
The Institute is proud to host Fuse, Centre for Translational Research in Public Health http://www.fuse.ac.uk/ which is a member of the NIHR School for Public Health Research http://sphr.nihr.ac.uk/. The Institute is also part of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research, and co-leads the Policy Research Unit in frailty and ageing. Newcastle University is known for its leadership in ageing research. The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (North East and North Cumbria) also brings increased scope for multi-disciplinary research and engagement with public health policy and practice across the region.
