Applications are invited to join the Ageing Epidemiology (AGE) Research Unit in the School of Public Health. This post will be based at Charing Cross campus (Hammersmith) and White City campus.

Key Responsibilities:

You may be required to assist with the development of the CHARIOT: Cognitive Health in Ageing Registry, including management of the register, communications with members and point of contact about specific research studies.

You will be an important member of the delivery team for studies and trials running in the AGE Research Unit, with particular responsibility for administering cognitive and psychological assessments to study participants. You will also assist with other aspects of study delivery which may include data entry and other operational or administrative duties, participant recruitment, and contributions to the development and management of the CHARIOT: Cognitive Health in Ageing Registry.

Essential Requirements:

You should have a university degree conferring eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society. You should also have experience in administering clinical rating scales; health or social care experience; research experience, knowledge and skills; and skills and abilities relevant to communication, teamworking and work productivity as detailed in the Person Specification.

Please refer to the special instructions in the Job Description and Person Specification when completing your application form.

Further Information:

PLEASE NOTE: special instructions for completing the application form.

We anticipate a high number of applications for this post, which will make it impossible for us to read long entries in the “Statement in Support of Application” section.  For our initial screening, we will read only the first 200 WORDS of your “Statement in Support of Application”. You must use these 200 words to demonstrate the following:

Seven of the criteria below are marked with an asterisk (*).  At the beginning of your “Statement in Support of Application” you must provide succinct evidence to show how you meet each of these criteria. This may be in note form, as long as it is clear.  Refer to each criterion using the letter-number code provided (e.g. E1), start a new line for each criterion, and use no more than 200 WORDS in total. 

A specific example of something that you have done will be given more credit than a general comment about your overall skills or knowledge. For example:

“E1: I have administered scales and tests including the PHQ9 questionnaire and the Rivermead Behavioural Memory Test.”

“E3: My induction for my current post included training in data protection. I regularly access information about patients referred to an NHS Memory Clinic.”

Space limitations will not permit you to list all your relevant experience, so you will need to choose the examples that best demonstrate that you meet each criterion.

All applications will be rated on the above criteria. If you include further text in your application or in a separate attachment, this further information may be used to decide between equally rated candidates but it will not be taken into account in the initial rating.

The advert will not be withdrawn before the advertised closing date.

The post will be offered for full time, fixed term for 9 months in the first instance. Due to high initial training requirements, full time availability is normally required, although candidates with relevant prior training and experience may be considered for part time work (minimum 0.5 FTE).

Imperial College is supportive of flexible working. The College is happy to discuss the possibility of implementing such arrangements for this post, with suitably qualified people, subject to operational requirements.

As this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, at the appropriate level, will be required for the successful candidate.

Salary: £25,655 – £31,534 (plus an inner London allowance up to £7,097 pa)

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes which are ultimately aimed towards finding new treatments and making scientific and medical advances, and where there are no satisfactory or reasonably practical alternatives to their use. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.

We are committed to equality of opportunity, to eliminating discrimination and to creating an inclusive working environment for all. We therefore encourage candidates to apply irrespective of age, disability, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion and belief, gender identity, sex, or sexual orientation.
