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 recent undergraduate or postgraduate degree (Bsc, MSc or similar) in health psychology, psychology, psychological research methods, sociology or life sciences. Work experience in a related research or health setting is desirable but not essential. You will be expected to have knowledge and experience of literature review methodology, qualitative and quantitative analysis and research design including data collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination. Fluency in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, organisational 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, fun environment.
You will join a dynamic team of researchers with a passion for excellence in research and client service. You will have a genuine interest in understanding, evaluating and communicating the patient perspective. You will have the opportunity to learn about many different diseases, health conditions and to develop your skills in a range of different research methodologies including qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research.
You will be involved in studies focused on the selection, development, validation, and use of patient-reported outcomes and other COAs. You will 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, recruitment of study participants, interviewing of participants, qualitative coding and analysis, reporting results and writing presentations, conference abstracts/posters and journal manuscripts. You will be involved in multiple projects at any one time so good communication and organisational skills are essential for this role.
