Senior Research Associate, Patient-Centered Outcomes

What we are looking for

We are looking for a highly motivated Senior 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; a postgraduate qualification in psychology, health psychology or psychological research methods is desirable but not essential. In addition to demonstrating knowledge of literature research methodology, you will also have solid 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, fun environment.

How you fit in

With your background in social science or life science research 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.

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 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, preparing study documentation for ethical review (both UK and International), recruitment of study participants, interviewing of participants, qualitative coding and analysis, reporting results and writing presentations, conference abstracts/posters and journal manuscripts.
