To take on a senior role within a team conducting a set of linked studies testing interventions aimed at improving the quality of care for sick newborns in hospital. The studies aim to examine how medical and nursing team leaders on newborn units manage the challenges of providing better care to sick newborns in Kenyan County hospitals and how they respond to efforts to develop their management, leadership and communication skills within the context of a multi-hospital network that aims to track hospital performance in providing quality care. These studies will be conducted in partnership with a large multidisciplinary team and amongst hospitals that are already part of the Clinical Information Network. The post-doctoral scientist will join an emerging social science group in the KEMRI-Wellcome Programme in Nairobi that focuses on health systems research (https://kemri-wellcome.org/programme/health-systems/). They will be supported by senior social scientists from Oxford University and work with a wider multi-disciplinary team focused on health services research and newborn care. They will also align their work and have reporting responsibilities to the wider CIN team and contribute to emerging work on antimicrobial resistance.
