Research Assistant - Dementia Studies

University of Oxford - Department of Psychiatry

(2 posts)

Warneford Hospital, Oxford

Applications are invited for two research assistants to join the Translational Neuroscience and Dementia Research Group at the University of Oxford. The posts are fixed-term (funded for 2 years) and are based at the Department of Psychiatry at the Warneford Hospital.

You will be working on dementia studies and will be recruiting participants, scheduling and arranging visits, and conducting neuropsychological assessments. You will work with the trial manager to provide additional support and data input as required and will help prepare summaries and reports on study progress and recruitment. These posts provide excellent experience of clinically relevant research and would suit a person interested in going on to either clinical psychology training or further research. 

You will have a degree (2:1 or above) in psychology or a relevant discipline along with a strong interest in cognitive neuroscience and clinical psychology, and will be able to work with patients and older participants. With demonstrable experience of conducting neuropsychological assessments, you will have an understanding of research design and experimental methods. The posts may involve travelling which would be facilitated by having a valid driving licence and access to own or other independent means of transport.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement, a CV, and details of two referees as part of your online application.

The closing date for this post is 12.00 midday on Wednesday 4 January 2017.
