New jobs in the Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre (SISCC)

The Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre (SISCC) – of which SDHI is one of many collaborators – is seeking to fill several work-stream posts in the area of maternal and child health and older people. The job adverts are now live and have been posted on the Dundee university website. The posts include

· SNHS0001 – Research Fellow, Improvement in maternal and child health
· SNHS0002 – Research Fellow, Improvement in older people’s health and well-being
· SNHS0003 – Senior Research Fellow, Improvement in maternal and child health
· SNHS0004 – Senior Research Fellow, Improvement in older people’s health and well-being

Ideally these posts will attract health practitioners (with active professional registration) who will have the leadership and credibility to drive forward improvement initiatives and projects across Scotland. SISCC is looking for professionals with a strong background in leadership in a relevant health profession, with knowledge and expertise in both practice, research and/or education and the ability to lead the implementation of evidence-based change. As well as advertising these to the academic community, the posts are being offered as secondment opportunities from health and social care.
