The role

We are seeking to appoint a talented and enthusiastic researcher with experience in qualitative research methods to join the innovative (Qualitative Research Integrated within Trials) research group led by Professor Jenny Donovan.

The position is available on a full-time basis (we will also consider appointments on a part time basis). The post is currently funded for 12 months from the date of appointment with potential for outstanding candidates to continue working within the School.

What will you be doing?

The QuinteT group uses qualitative research methods to optimise recruitment and informed consent to randomised controlled trials (RCTs). We have gained an international reputation for developing and applying the QuinteT Recruitment Intervention (QRI) in over 70 challenging RCTs, across a range of clinical contexts including surgical procedures, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, physiotherapy, renal medicine or novel procedures or methods of management compared with standard or inactive treatments.

You will be involved in setting up and undertaking in-depth interviews with healthcare professionals and patients, as well as liaising with healthcare professionals to ensure that audio-recordings are made of appointments where eligible patients are presented with information about RCTs. You will analyse these data (using methods of constant comparison, or other appropriate methods and techniques such as content, framework or conversation analysis) and work with the study lead and management group to optimise recruitment and informed consent.

You should apply if

  • You have experience of undertaking applied qualitative research, most likely in a health services research setting
  • You have detailed knowledge and understanding of the range of qualitative methodologies and underlying theory
  • Planned interview date: Tuesday 13 December
