We invite applications for a Research Fellow position on the Together Project funded by Health Education England.
In this next phase of the Together Project, we will recruit a team of people with learning disabilities, their family/informal carers, to co-design and co-deliver learning disability awareness training for student midwives. We are going to develop and pilot this intervention, evaluating it for acceptability and impact on learning disability awareness in student midwives and acceptability in those co-developing and co-delivering the education.

The successful candidate will be responsible for coordinating and undertaking research activities including monthly co-production meetings, data collection, analysis and dissemination.
