There is an exciting opportunity in the early-stage development of a UK Renal Health Data Research Network (UKRHDRN) for the position of two co-chairs to lead the important work of this group and drive forward research in this area. This network will sit under the UK Kidney Research Consortium (UKKRC).
This new network will foster collaboration between researchers working with large datasets to undertake research on kidney diseases, with the ultimate aim of reducing the burden of kidney disease and reducing health inequalities in kidney disease and its treatment.
By enabling better use of health datasets, we can improve renal healthcare now and enable future research discoveries.
The co-chairs will develop a clear roadmap with key milestones in line with agreed goals, driving forward identified workstreams and new projects to accelerate progress in the use of data to improve outcomes for kidney patients.
Kidney Research UK will provide some co-ordination and development support for meetings of the network. It’s envisaged that the average time commitment for the co-chairs will be approximately three hours per week but will depend on early-stage development activity, the scale of future projects and the support from any workstream leads within the network.
Submit a short CV, with relevant experience and a two-page expression of interest to the UK Kidney Research Consortium Steering Group via [email protected]. The expression of interest should set out your vision for this network over the first three years of your term of office.
The closing date for applications is 5pm, 15 December 2021.
