We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and well-organised research associate to work with the Academy of Primary Care to deliver the ENHANCE study.

ENHANCE (TailorEd iNtervention for brain HeAlth aNd Cognitive augmentation) is an NIHR funded Programme Grant that will test a novel intervention aiming to reduce modifiable risk factors for dementia in underserved populations. These risks are known to cluster within socioeconomically deprived and ethnically diverse populations. Humber and the surrounding region is a key recruitment site for testing the intervention.  ENHANCE is led by a team at UCL, London. The team have co-developed an intervention that  uses digital technology (a bespoke app) combined with coaching techniques to facilitate behavioural change in participants to address 10 targeted risk factors for developing dementia. The intervention is now ready for feasibility testing at sites around the UK. 

The researcher appointed to this post will deliver the field work here in the northeast. You will join the team based in the Academy of Primary Care . The Academy is at the forefront of research and best practice in primary care in our region and beyond. We deliver innovative research that aims to improve whole person health and healthcare. We are looking to welcome a new researcher to our team to support delivery of the ENHANCE study. You will work closely with Academy colleagues, the UCL programme manager and practices here in the northeast to recruit and consent participants to the feasibility study and facilitate all aspects of the study. 

You will join a multi-professional expert team delivering this research – including a programme manager and other research assistants (based in London); as well as public partners, doctors, psychologists, policy leads, managers, an app development company, health economists and human-computer interaction experts. 

The post is funded initially for the duration of the feasibility study (12 months). If the feasibility study is successful, the project will continue to a full Randomised Controlled Trial with funding for a further 3 years (making 4 years in total).

The post is available full time, with applications to work part-time or job share welcomed.
