New Social Care Research Fellowships now open for application

March 1, 2024

The NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) North East and North Cumbria (NENC) invites applications for a number of new social care focused fellowships.

The posts are funded by the National Institute for Health and Social Care Research (NIHR) through the ARC NENC as part of an investment in social care, and are subject to final confirmation of funding from NIHR.

This is an ideal opportunity for individuals who would like to develop research in the topic area of social care, and is open to practitioners or researchers with an interest in social care.

The posts will focus on the following cross-cutting areas:

  • Accelerating progress in digital social care
  • Improved transitions between services
  • Addressing post-pandemic social care needs
  • Understanding service user and carer experiences of social care

The successful applicants will join a significant national cohort of social care researchers from across all 15 Applied Research Collaborations. They will also join a vibrant regional community of research fellows within the ARC North East and North Cumbria.

ARC NENC are keen to receive applications from a range of disciplines across health and social care including social work, allied health professionals, community and creative arts, engineering, data science, neuroscience, and clinicians who can make innovative and impactful contributions to social care.

This includes those working in community settings, health and social care settings, arts and culture organisations, voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations, research institutes, local authorities and industry.

The closing date for applications is 15 March 2024.
