The Scottish Learning Disability Observatory is seeking to recruit a number of new research posts, one at grade 8, and up to 7 other researchers at Grade 6 and 7. The aim of the recently established observatory is to conduct programmes of research, public engagement and knowledge exchange. The focus is to contribute towards a fairer and healthier Scotland through raising awareness of, and providing evidence-based solutions to the very poor health and health inequalities currently experienced by people with learning disabilities. Areas include: health improvement, service improvement, public health intelligence, research and development, monitoring and assessing trends in the health of people with learning disabilities, assessing evidence of effectiveness, policy and strategy development, collaborative working for health. We are looking for both quantitative and qualitative researchers and would particularly welcome applications from people with a disability studies background.
