We are looking for an experienced researcher in ageing/dementia to join the College of Medicine and Health. This part-time, (60%) post is available from 5 January 2022 until 31 December 2024 on a fixed-term basis. While the project is co-ordinated from Exeter, we are willing to consider blended and remote working options for this post. The post is not suitable for job-sharing.

It is an exciting time to join us in the College of Medicine and Health. We have a proven track record of world-leading research, excellent education and high student satisfaction. Since our inception in 2010, we have seen significant growth and development, and this trajectory is set to continue as we develop new programmes and recruit world-class researchers. All of our activities have one goal in mind: to improve people’s lives, through better care, treatments, therapies and healthcare systems. Together we create the possible.

The Role
We are looking for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join our team to participate in the innovative RecoverED (Development and testing of an intervention to improve Recovery after an Episode of Delirium) research programme. We are a multi-disciplinary team led in Exeter and working with Birmingham, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Nottingham and Winchester Universities and University College London.

In RecoverED we will be developing a home-based rehabilitation intervention to help improve recovery after delirium for older people who have experienced delirium while in the acute hospital. This is a previously poorly researched area, and we will be developing and testing a novel intervention. This NIHR funded will be extendable for a further 2 years subject to a satisfactory programme report submitted to the funder. You will work closely with the principal investigator and co-investigators, to contribute to and help shape the development of the RecoverED programme, ensuring that project targets are delivered on time and on budget. You will co-ordinate project activities and the work of a small staff team.

About You
You will be able to develop research objectives, projects and proposals and make presentations at conferences and other events.

You will possess a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification/experience in a related field of study. You will be a nationally recognised authority in ageing/dementia and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to develop research programmes and methodologies. You will also be able to work collaboratively, supervise the work of others and act as team leader as required. You will have experience in coordinating and managing clinical research studies, excellent organisational skills and the ability to produce written material promptly and to a high standard.
