We have a vacancy for a talented researcher with an interest in burn care research and the development of Core Outcome Sets to work on the COSB project (Core Outcome Sets in Burn Care Research).

You will primarily focus on the consensus process (Delphi survey) to prioritise outcomes in the long-list. This will include the development of the questionnaire, recruitment of patients and professionals from a variety of disciplines, analysing results, feeding back results in an innovative way and planning and organising consensus meetings. You will also contribute to writing papers and presenting results at workshops and conferences.
