What we are looking for

We are looking for a highly motivated Research Associate with a passion for applying and enhancing their healthcare research skills in a challenging and rapid-moving field.  You will have a degree in health psychology, psychology, sociology or life sciences, and a postgraduate qualification in the health psychology field would be of interest. In addition to demonstrating knowledge of literature research methodology, you will also have some experience of qualitative and quantitative analysis methods. Fluency in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, organisation skills, self-motivation, and very close attention to detail are essential, along with a team work ethos and an appetite for working in a fast-paced environment (and having fun)!

How you fit in

With your background in psychology or another science or social science discipline you will join a dynamic team of researchers with a passion for excellence in delivery and hard work. You will have a genuine interest in the evaluation of the patient perspective in clinical trials and other studies. You will have the opportunity to learn about many different diseases, health conditions and different research methodologies including qualitative and quantitative research design.

This is an exciting and varied role in which you will be involved in studies focused on the selection, development, validation, and use of patient-reported outcomes and other health outcomes instruments (e.g. clinician-reported outcomes). You could be involved in all stages of the development and execution of studies such as developing proposals, conducting literature reviews, developing study protocols (both qualitative and quantitative), developing statistical analyses plans, preparing study documentation for ethical review (both UK and International), recruitment of study participants, interviewing of participants, analysis of data and reporting of results. You will be involved in multiple projects at any one time so good communication and organisational skills are essential for this role.

We believe in rewarding high performance – so our benefits package includes a competitive salary, performance-related rewards, health insurance, pension, and on-site gym membership. We are committed to your development, and we provide support for further qualifications in a friendly and informal office environment along with opportunities for progression.
