Profile Description

Health and Social Care research at Sheffield Hallam University includes an extensive range of research, evaluation and development work. The aim is to provide high quality research and development which has impact and is relevant to policy makers, managers and practitioners. We work with a broad range of external partners including health authorities, social services departments, local councils, voluntary and community organisations, charities and government agencies.

We are recognised internationally for the quality of our research - in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, 70% of our submitted research was judged as world-leading or internationally excellent. We have expertise in a broad range of research approaches including evaluation, case studies, action research, participatory methods, surveys and mixed methods research.

We welcome applications for research study in any of our four thematic areas:

• Public health, wellness and community care
• Education and workforce transformation
• Managing mental and physical health
• Cancer and life limiting illness

We have a community of approximately 50 postgraduate students in health and social care research who are at the heart of contributing to our research output. All doctoral students are supported by a comprehensive programme of doctoral training and encouraged to present their research findings at national and international conferences. Researchers are based in one of our three related departments: Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery, and Social Work, Social Care and Community Studies.
