Brief Description of the Role:                                             

We have a vision to promote a healthier, fairer future for children living in deprived areas through a focus on improving environments that can influence health and life chances.

Making this vision real requires substantial and sustainable changes to the broader early life environments that have a lifelong influence on our health. With the award of a major grant from the UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP), we are creating novel city research ‘hubs’ in Bradford and Tower Hamlets that will support the identification, implementation and evaluation of upstream interventions in areas with high levels of child poverty. These will provide a new and whole system environment where the public, scientists, policymakers and practitioners work with each other to develop and test early life upstream prevention solutions. Our ActEarly City Collaboratory will provide research-ready, people-powered and data-linked test beds to promote a fairer and healthier future for children and develop a global example of how to work with communities to improve health.

We are looking for someone who shares our exciting vision to join us in creating a ground-breaking research programme that will shape the lives of future generations.

The Public Health Information Analyst will be a key member of the Bradford site ActEarly team and will provide public health data and intelligence analysis and interpretation.  The post-holder will work closely with ActEarly researchers, Connected Bradford analysts, and local authority Public Health Intelligence Specialists, They will provide public health intelligence support to the design, implementation and evaluation of ActEarly projects and will need experience of working with routine data and epidemiological and statistical analysis skills. They will support the development of robust processes for data quality assurance and data extract/reporting across datasets contributing to the reporting of public health information and the development of a core outcomes data set. The postholder will be based at Bradford Institute for Health Research and will work closely with City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council and the wider ActEarly team. As part of the ActEarly Consortium, the research fellow will share learning and skills with colleagues across the consortium.
