Interviews for this role will be held on 9 November 2017


Glasgow Caledonian University is a vibrant multi-cultural modern university in the centre of Glasgow and is placed amongst the top 150 modern Universities in the world.


An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the ELECTRIC (ELECtric Tibial nerve stimulation to Reduce Incontinence in Care homes) trial team based at Glasgow Caledonian University. The ELECTRIC trial is one of a number of studies in our Ageing Well Research Group and contributes to an ongoing programme of research on Continence Promotion.


Funded by the NIHR HTA programme this multisite RCT will be undertaken in 20 care homes across the North of England and Central belt of Scotland. We seek a highly organised and experienced qualitative researcher to coordinate the qualitative study embedded within the ELECTRIC trial. This will explore the experiences of those who receive the intervention, their family carers and the care home staff. In addition factors affecting intervention implementation and sustainability of the intervention, based on the COM-B model, will be explored with various care home staff. You will be responsible for approaching and consenting trial participants to take part in the qualitative study and for coordinating and conducting all interviews and focus groups onsite across the 20 care homes enrolled in the project. You will also contribute to the data analysis and interpretation, report writing and dissemination. Experience working with individuals with dementia or their families/carers will be of benefit for this post.
