Job Description 

We are really pleased to offer this excellent opportunity to join our team in the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care as Research Assistant with PhD opportunity. 

You will be one of two research assistants supporting the delivery of a five-year programme of research in diabetes distress in adults with type 1 diabetes. Over the five-years you will support work package leads and trial managers to undertake literature reviewing and evidence synthesis, co-designing interventions with diabetes community stakeholders, supporting a realist process evaluation using qualitative and survey research methods, and the delivery of a feasibility and a main trial. The programme will be undertaken in collaboration with 24 geographically dispersed NHS sites in England which will require approx. monthly travel including occasional overnight stays. The programme combines innovative stepped wedge clinical trial design with a realist process evaluation and will offer the opportunity to develop research skills from methodological research leaders in these designs. The programme draws in expertise in diabetes distress from international leaders and a wide network of UK NHS clinical innovators who have a strong desire to improve patient experience of diabetes care. The programme is hosted within the Research Division of Care for Long Term Conditions (current Head of Division is Prof Jackie Sturt). The division has four strong research groups in diabetes, gastroenterology, mental health and older people. The post holder will join the Clinical Research in Diabetes group. The clinical research groups, the faculty offers an active staff and Post Graduate Research student community supporting seminar programmes, training, professional development, seed-corn funding opportunities, under-grad and post-grad teaching experience.

We are seeking someone committed to developing their career in diabetes distress research in the UK by enrolling in a part-time PhD at King’s (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/nmpc/postgraduate-research) alongside their research assistant role on the programme. The post is funded 100% FTE of which a 30% contribution of time will be allocated to the conduct of a part-time PhD over the five-year post. It is expected the D-stress programme and the PhD will align to maximise the value of the award to the funder and opportunity for the doctoral candidate. Part-time tuition fees are NOT included in the package. Applicants must assume they will be responsible for self-funding doctoral tuition fees https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgraduate-research/areas/nursing-research-with-option-of-joint-phd-with-hku-or-nus or be bringing funding with them to the application. Tuition fees contributions may be available to the post holder from year to year depending on subsequent collaborative research award opportunities and funding success developed between the post holder and academic members of the D-stress programme team. Funding for PhD-related conferences, research costs and research training is competitively available within the Division and the Faculty.

This post will be offered on an a fixed-term contract until 30/04/2029.
