We're hiring! SusQI Education and Research Fellow 2023-4

Thursday, 1 June, 2023

We are looking to appoint a qualified medical  professional to an Education and Research Fellowship, working with our team to embed sustainability in Quality Improvement education for undergraduate medical students, postgraduate doctors and other health professionals and to evaluate its impact. You will take over from the 2022-3 Education Fellow, working on Sustainability in QI Education.

  • 4-5 days a week, £34,000-£42,500 per annum (£42,500 pro rata)
  • Fixed term 12 months 
  • Working remotely, with travel to monthly meetings in Oxford (travel expenses covered)
  • Applications should be made by 9am 23rd June 2023 


Despite growing awareness and concern about the climate and ecological emergency, as well as Government and NHS commitments on carbon reduction, there remains a gap in knowledge and skills for sustainable healthcare among health professionals. Integrating sustainability into Quality Improvement (SusQI) offers a practical way to fill this gap: addressing environmental and ethical challenges in healthcare whilst providing a fresh motivation for staff to engage in QI and directing teams towards the highest value improvements.

Through the SusQI programme, CSH is working with medical, nursing and AHP educators to pioneer the integration of sustainability in undergraduate and postgraduate QI education and catalyse its widespread uptake across UK education and training programmes. 


You will be working within CSH’s SusQI team. Your work will benefit from strategic advice and networking from the SusQI Reference Group, whose membership includes senior representatives of Health Education England, The Health Foundation and other respected institutions.

Level of responsibility 

Under guidance from our Medical Director and SusQI programme lead, you will contribute to planning and delivery of the SusQI programme, alongside CSH staff.  Once tasks are allocated, you will have responsibility for managing your own work, supported by weekly virtual SusQI team meetings.
