Job Description


Brief Description of the Role:

The newly established Centre for Qualitative Research at Born in Bradford (BiB) brings together our qualitative research from across a range of applied research programmes, that together aim to provide a healthier, fairer future for children and families in Bradford. Projects include:

- ActEarly: Delivering the qualitative evaluation theme of ActEarly, which focuses on upstream early life interventions

- JU:MP: Qualitative process evaluation of a whole systems approach to increasing and sustaining physical activity in children and families

- Age of Wonder: Qualitative longitudinal research to collect an in-depth and cumulative record of young peoples changing attitudes and experiences as they move from childhood through adolescence

Born in Bradford is one of the largest longitudinal birth cohort studies in the world and is internationally-recognised for research into health and disease. We are looking for someone who shares our exciting vision to join us in creating a ground-breaking qualitative research centre within Bradford. The postholder will be based at the Bradford Institute for Health Research (BIHR). The Research Fellow will work under the supervision of ActEarly and JU:MP Qualitative Senior Research Fellows, and will be a key member of the Born in Bradford qualitative team. They will support the development of the Centre for Qualitative Research through establishing and co-ordinating a BiB qualitative research group. They will also conduct key qualitative research and operational tasks required across the qualitative dimensions of BiB ActEarly, JU:MP and Age of Wonder programmes.

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, motivated and highly organised research fellow to come and work on projects whose findings will have a real impact on improving the health and wellbeing of families in Bradford and beyond. It offers a role that crosses academic and practice based public health. BIHR is a leading public health research organisation working closely with the Universities of Leeds, York, Bradford, QMUL and UCL through our UK Prevention Research Partnership Consortium, ActEarly.

Whilst it will be necessary for the postholder to be in Bradford and BIHR to conduct field work and organise Centre for Qualitative Research activities there is opportunity for remote/flexible working around this.
