Odd tablet


Hourly Paid Research Assistant – Centre of Behavioural Medicine, Practice & Policy

Although the importance of explicit, reported cognitions about medicines is well understood, there is a dearth of research on implicit, unconscious or automatic processes.  The project is focused on piloting tasks to measure 1) implicit attitudes to medications (e.g. are they viewed positively or negatively) and 2) their causal models of symptoms; measuring the internal reliability of these tasks and their predictive validity in terms of their associations with reported medication beliefs and behaviour.

The Research Assistant will be involved in conducting research studies. Key duties include literature searches, participant recruitment and testing, statistical analysis and provide administrative support to Dr Sarah Chapman.
The successful applicant must have an MSc in Health Psychology or equivalent, experience of running research projects in areas around medication beliefs and computer based experiments, strong organisational skills and computer skills in SPSS, Excel, Endnote and Office.  This is a part time role of up to 10 hours a week.

Salary: Grade 6, Scale Point 24-26 (£15.34 per hour - £16.17 per hour)
