Project: Assessing the potential of innovative qualitative methods for randomised controlled trials

Based in the Institute of Global Health at University College London (UCL), this post is an exciting opportunity to work on a study of how innovative qualitative methods can be used to improve understandings of social context and process when used alongside randomised controlled trials of structural health interventions. The study will involve key informant interviews with experts working in the field of global health.

We are seeking an enthusiastic Research Assistant who is passionate about techniques of mixed methods research to assist with the study. In addition to conducting the key informant interviews, the successful candidate will assist with a review of the relevant literature, developing an online questionnaire, conducting data analysis, writing reports, and organising a workshop.

Applicants must have an MSc in Social Science or a related discipline (or equivalent research experience). Previous experience conducting interviews with key informants and carrying out literature reviews is essential.

The project is supported by the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Wellcome Trust. The post would be a great career development opportunity for an aspiring qualitative researcher in the social sciences of global health.

The post is part-time (0.4% FTE), and funded for one year in the first instance.
