Adelphi Values

Location: Manchester
Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 25th June 2019
Closes: 25th August 2019

Who we are: Adelphi Values is a leading health outcomes consultancy that works with a wide range of pharmaceutical companies. In the Patient-Centered Outcomes (PCO) team we are global leaders in the selection, development, validation and use of Clinical Outcome Assessments (COA) including Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs), Clinician-Reported Outcomes (ClinROs), Observer-Reported Outcomes (ObsROs) and Performance-Reported Outcomes (PerfOs). We are a dedicated team of researchers proud of our friendly, supportive culture and of our reputation for high quality research and client service which puts the patient at the centre of drug development.

What we do: Our purpose is to improve patients’ lives by informing healthcare decisions. In the PCO team we do this primarily through supporting clients in the selection, development, validation and implementation of COAs that form trial endpoints or are used in clinical practice to support the evaluation of the patient experience and assessment of treatment benefit.

What we are looking for: We are looking for a highly motivated Research Associate with a passion for applying and enhancing their healthcare research skills in a challenging and rapid-moving field. You will have a recent undergraduate or postgraduate degree (Bsc, MSc or similar) in health psychology, psychology, psychological research methods, sociology or life sciences. Work experience in a related research or health setting is desirable but not essential. You will be expected to have knowledge and experience of literature review methodology, qualitative and quantitative analysis and research design including data collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination. Fluency in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, organisational 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: 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.

You will be involved in studies focused on the selection, development, validation, and use of patient-reported outcomes and other COAs. 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, recruitment of study participants, interviewing of participants, qualitative coding and analysis, reporting results and writing presentations, conference abstracts/posters and journal manuscripts.  You will be involved in multiple projects at any one time so good communication and organisational skills are essential for this role.

What we offer: We believe in rewarding high performance so our benefits package includes a competitive salary (with scope for increases based on performance), performance-related rewards, health insurance, generous pension, and on-site gym membership. We are committed to your personal development, and provide support for training and development along with opportunities for progression. We’re based in a beautiful rural location near Manchester, UK however the global nature of our business provides opportunities for travel.
