We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced researcher to join a multi-site research project to develop and test an intervention that supports person-centred care in hospital. This involves ethnographic study of the practice of 1:1 and constant observation care, and engaging in improvement activities and evaluation. This is an exciting opportunity to join a successful research team with an established track record in dementia care. This post is funded through a research grant from the Alzheimer’s Society.  

The post would suit a post-graduate with research experience with older people living with dementia and an understanding of hospital settings. The successful applicant will work closely with the PI to carry out all aspects of the research in one site and liaise with researchers at two other sites.  

Candidates will have experience in qualitative research methodology. They are expected to be organised, capable of using their own initiative, able to work well in a team and be sensitive to the needs of the research participants. Fundamental to the role will be the ability to manage relationships with external stakeholders and participants. Candidates should hold a good undergraduate honours degree in a relevant discipline, alongside a PhD (or close to completion) or equivalent experience (e.g. clinical). 

You will be based within the NCARE in the School of Health Sciences, University of Nottingham. Some travel will be required and occasional meetings with researchers at the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield and Leeds Beckett University will be expected, so a driving licence and access to a car is desirable. Post-COVID-19 pandemic we will use digital communications where possible. 

This part-time (29 hours per week) post, will be offered on a fixed-term contract until 03 January 2023.

Candidates are encouraged to get in touch for an informal discussion. Please contact Prof Rowan Harwood or Dr Melanie Handley, Research Fellow Health and Care for Older people:
