University of Bradford - Faculty of Health Studies - Centre for Applied Dementia Studies

Location: Bradford
Salary: £32,348 to £35,333 per annum (Grade 7 and 8 available depending on experience)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 23rd September 2022
Closes: 14th October 2022
Job Ref: HR0130974

Interview date: Wednesday 2nd November 2022

We are seeking to appoint two researchers to join our National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaboration, Yorkshire & Humber (NIHR ARC YH) Dementia Capacity Building Postdoctoral Training Programme. 

  • Research Fellow- Grade 8
  • Research Associate- Grade 7

Both jobs are offered on a 2 year contract, full time and part time contracts are available.

The posts are funded as part of a prestigious NIHR ARC YH & Alzheimer's Society award and will be based at Centre for Applied Dementia Studies, University of Bradford and the Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research located at Bradford Royal Infirmary. The successful applicant(s) will join a regional and national network of dementia researchers, in partnership with the Academic Unit for Ageing & Stroke Research, Leeds Institute of Health Sciences and national NIHR ARC Dementia Postdoctoral Researcher Network.

The NIHR YH ARC Dementia Capacity Building Network is co-led by Siobhan Reilly, Professor of Applied Dementia Research at the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies, University of Bradford and Andrew Clegg, Professor of Geriatric Medicine at the Academic Unit for Ageing & Stroke Research, University of Leeds. We have prioritised research into prevention of dementia as a major evidence gap and will investigate:

  1. Health inequalities across the diverse populations of Yorkshire and Humber.
  2. How health inequalities impact upon capacity for dementia prevention within population groups.
  3. How interventions to prevent dementia at population and individual levels might be tailored to be acceptable and meet the needs of different groups, aiming to reduce health inequalities.

We are also keen for researchers to outline their vision for research to support prevention of dementia, and align plans accordingly. We anticipate appointing postdoctoral researchers with a mix of methodological expertise. This includes researchers with qualitative research expertise, including intervention co-design, and researchers with expertise in systematic literature reviews and use of routine health and care data for research. Although experience in dementia research is desirable.  We encourage researchers who have experience in other related areas of health and care research to apply.  You will have experience of working or researching in dementia or broader ageing research-related areas (e.g. frailty, care homes, stroke research), or have research skills that you can demonstrate are directly transferable to the context of research into prevention of dementia.

For further enquiries, or to arrange an informal chat, please contact Siobhan Reilly - Director of the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies via s.reilly@bradford.ac.uk.
