Position: Senior Research Associate, Patient-Centered Outcomes

Closing Date: Ongoing
Company: Adelphi Values
Location: Bollington, UK

Job Description

Who we are: Adelphi Values is a leading health outcomes consultancy that works with a wide range of pharmaceutical and medical device companies. In the Patient-Centered Outcomes team we are global leaders in the selection, development, validation and use of Clinical Outcome Assessments (COA) including Patient-Reported Outcomes, Clinician-Reported Outcomes (ClinRO), Observer-Reported Outcomes (ObsRO) and Performance-Reported Outcomes (PerfO).  We are a friendly but dedicated team of researchers, proud of our high standards of scientific rigor and client service, committed to personal development and rewarding high performance. We are equally proud of our friendly, supportive culture and our approach to people and their working environment as we are of our reputation and high quality research which puts the patient at the centre of drug development.


What we do: Our purpose is to improve patients’ lives by informing healthcare decisions. In the Patient-Centered Outcomes team we do this primarily through supporting clients in the selection, development, validation and implementation of Clinical Outcome Assessments that form trial endpoints or are used in clinical practice.


What we are looking for: We are looking for a highly motivated Senior Research Associate with a passion for applying and enhancing their healthcare research skills in a challenging and rapid-moving field.  You will have a degree in health psychology, psychology, sociology or life sciences; a postgraduate qualification in psychology, health psychology or psychological research methods is desirable but not essential. In addition to demonstrating knowledge of literature research methodology, you will also have solid experience of qualitative and quantitative analysis methods. Fluency in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, organisation skills, self-motivation, and very close attention to detail are essential, along with a team work ethos and an appetite for working in a fast-paced, fun environment.


How you fit in: With your background in social science or life science research you will join a dynamic team of researchers with a passion for excellence in research and client service. You will have a genuine interest in understanding, evaluating and communicating the patient perspective. You will have the opportunity to learn about many different diseases, health conditions and to develop your skills in a range of different research methodologies including qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research.


This is an exciting and varied role in which you will be involved in studies focused on the selection, development, validation, and use of patient-reported outcomes and other health outcomes instruments (e.g. clinician-reported outcomes). You will be involved in all stages of the development and execution of studies such as developing proposals, conducting literature reviews, developing study protocols (both qualitative and quantitative), developing statistical analyses plans, preparing study documentation for ethical review (both UK and International), recruitment of study participants, interviewing of participants, qualitative coding and analysis, reporting results and writing presentations, conference abstracts/posters and journal manuscripts. You will be involved in multiple projects at any one time so good communication and organisational skills are essential for this role.


What we offer: We believe in rewarding high performance – so our benefits package includes a competitive salary (with scope for increases based on performance), performance-related rewards, health insurance, a generous pension, and on-site gym membership. We are committed to your development, and we provide support for training and development in a friendly and informal office environment along with opportunities for progression. This position is based at our European head office, in a beautiful rural location just outside Manchester, UK, however the global nature of our business provides opportunities for travel and international working.


If you are looking to work in a professional, challenging, and rewarding environment where there is a real passion for delivering high quality work, please send your Resume / CV and a covering letter to hr.uk@adelphivalues.com
