The University of Liverpool are seeking to appoint an exceptional individual to increase the profile and effectiveness of research in Women's Global Health at the University of Liverpool. We are seeking an individual with experience in the area of Global Women's Health who has the ambition and vision to develop a critical mass of research within their own research group, and through collaboration and leadership locally, to allow Liverpool to become a recognised key player in this increasingly important area of research nationally and internationally.

You should hold a relevant PhD or equivalent. You will be expected to run an
internationally competitive programme of research in the broad area of Women's Global Health. You will be expected to collaborate with the World Health Organisation, the National Institute for Health Research, the Medical Research Council, and other national initiatives.  You will uphold the aims of the National Institute for Health Research to translate research into benefit for patients, to drive innovation in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of maternal health complications, particularly in Malawi and other low resource settings, and to maintain international research competitiveness.

The post will be based in the Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome (MLW) Clinical Research Centre in Blantyre, Malawi (www.mlw.medcol.mw) for two/three years in the first instance (negotiable) with frequent travel to Malawi thereafter. Interviews will be held on 9 April 2019.
