Research Assistant in the Deep End Research Alliance

Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity in the Primary Care Research Group for a qualitative researcher to join the Deep End Research Alliance. This group carries out and supports research which is inclusive of people from minority ethnic backgrounds, and who live in socio-economically deprived areas, in conjunction with ‘The Deep End’ Clinical Research Network.

With a postgraduate qualification in a relevant Health or Social Science related discipline and experience of collaborative working and event organisation, you will support the development of participatory inclusive research. You will be based in a vibrant and supportive research environment committed to research that makes a difference to some of the most challenged groups in society.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
