About us

The Department of Clinical and Movement Neurosciences is a world-leading group that brings together expertise across the clinical and basic science spectrum of the physiology and pathology of human movement and movement disorders.

About the role

We are seeking an enthusiastic qualitative researcher with an interest in behaviour change and ageing research to join a team running the LiveWell with Parkinson’s - PD Care Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) based in the UCL Research Department of Primary Care and Population Health (PCPH). You will join a multidisciplinary team with expertise in ageing research, behaviour change, qualitative research and clinical trials and will work closely with the Chief Investigators, Trial Manager and PRIMENT Clinical Trials Unit.

You will lead on the delivery of the mixed methods process evaluation component of a high quality multisite clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the “Live Well with Parkinson’s” facilitated self-management toolkit. The process evaluation seeks to explore the factors promoting or inhibiting implementation, uptake, use, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the toolkit and sessions. This is an excellent opportunity for a qualitative researcher who is interested in health promotion and behaviour change interventions, particularly those targeted at an ageing population.
