An exciting opportunity is available for a qualitative researcher to work on a mixed-methods feasibility study exploring the views of primary care clinicians and patients towards a new diagnostic test designed to improve the use of antibiotics for chest infections. It is hoped that this new test may be a valuable tool in the fight against antibiotic resistance. The study is funded by the School of Primary Care Research.

Successful applicants will have demonstrated their ability to work independently and efficiently in a research context,and will have excellent written English skills with attention to detail. Experience of using qualitative analysis software such as NVivo would be an advantage.
