Applications are invited for a Research Assistant in Clinical Psychology to join the Section of Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism at Imperial College London. This Diabetes UK funded post will support a project to establish the prevalence and impact of type 1 diabetes stigma in the UK. Rates of stigma in type 1 diabetes have not been surveyed in the UK, but the impact on people with the condition has been made clear.
This project uses mixed methods and will survey 1,500 participants using Patient Reported Outcomes Measures and demographic questions then explore issues identified further with focus groups. Recruitment will be through the ADDRESS-2 infrastructure and work with Egality Health to enrich this sample for people affected by health inequalities, in whom the prevalence and severity of other health stigmas are higher.
The successful candidate will work with the ADDRESS-2 team to recruit for the study, manage the survey and facilitate a PPI group to design the focus groups then facilitate the focus groups and support with the thematic analysis of the output. In addition, the Research Assistant will be expected to submit regular reports to the other team members and coordinate working with both the ADDRESS-2 infrastructure and Egality Health.
The candidate will work in a dynamic and stimulating environment within Imperial’s major biomedical campus, as part of a team with vast diabetes and clinical psychology research expertise. They will benefit from an excellent infrastructure to carry out this project within the wider ADDRESS-2 network and the section. The College prides itself of providing excellent training opportunities for early career researchers with an array of workshops and short courses specifically designed for both personal and professional development.
This post is full time, fixed term for 24 months at the Hammersmith Hospital campus, with the possibility of being involved in future grant applications and/or enrolment on a PhD programme subsequently.
We would like to encourage applications from recently graduated MSc/MRes students, as this project lends itself as a stepping stone for specialised training prior to PhD/clinical psychology training
