Job Details

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.

We are seeking to underpin this programme with best practice in public patient involvement and so are recruiting to this post in order to co-ordinate public and patient involvement with the TRANSFORM research projects, and across our cancer work in general.

To discuss this role informally, please contact Professor Una Macleod, Dean of Hull York Medical School, una.macleod@hyms.ac.uk, 01482 463757
