This is a part-time post- 60% FTE

This part time (60%) fixed term Research Assistant position is funded by a Transformation Grant from the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity. The Research Assistant will be responsible for the preparation, implementation (including recruiting volunteers and collecting data) and analysis of studies that examine how to communicate information about the treatment, management and outcomes of complex congenital heart disease in children. There are several challenges to presenting and understanding this this information, including: the role of uncertainty (e.g., similar patients may experience dissimilar outcomes) and the complexity of the situation (e.g., patients can expect to have several surgical procedures). Because we are interested in the ‘lay’ understanding of this information, most studies will involve volunteers with no personal experience of the medical conditions or treatment pathways that have motivated this project

The selection process will include competency-based tasks to complete in advance of interview, and a panel interview (which includes presentation/discussion of the advance tasks)

Interviews are scheduled to be held the week commencing: 23 October 2017
