Research Fellow: Investigating the conditions in which women GPs thrive in General Practice: What works, for whom, how and in what circumstances?

The Workforce Organisation and Wellbeing (WOW) Research Group in the School of Health Sciences is seeking a Research Fellow to work on an NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research funded project to undertake a review of evidence into the conditions in which women GPs thrive in General Practice. This review will identify a range of workplace features that may be capable of supporting women GPs’ health and wellbeing; performance; and carer progression. The researcher will be supported by PI Dr Ruth Abrams (University of Surrey) and the wider research team.

Sitting within the University’s Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, the School of Health Sciences has achieved substantial success and is currently ranked 4th by the Complete University Guide 2020 and 4th by the Times and Sunday Time Good University Guide 2020. The School is a leading provider of undergraduate and postgraduate education and is in the top 10 in the UK for research following the recent Research Excellence Framework assessment. In addition to this, we have been awarded Gold for our Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). 

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher with skills in realist methodology and excellent project management to lead this review. They will also need to be able to engage in deep critical thinking to develop theoretical insights, have excellent verbal and written communication skills, the ability to work independently and contribute positively to a remote team culture. The successful candidate will be responsible for undertaking the data collection, data extraction and synthesis as well as support the write up of the final report and the production of various dissemination materials with support from other members of the team.
