This post is full-time and fixed-term for 2 years.

We are seeking an outstanding early-career researcher with the potential to become a leader in the field of mixed-methods health services research. You will join the research group of Professor Christopher McDermott at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) to work on clinical research projects focusing on the supportive and symptomatic management of patients with motor neurone disease (MND) and other neurodegenerative disorders.

This post provides an excellent opportunity to undertake high quality research within a stimulating multi-disciplinary context. You will work directly with a team of clinicians and researchers on HighCALS, a National Institute for Health (NIHR) funded research programme, with the aim to develop and evaluate a complex intervention to achieve a high calorie diet for people with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). HighCALS is a collaboration of co-investigators from the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN), the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) and the Department of Psychology at the University of Sheffield; and the School of Food Science and Nutrition at the University of Leeds.

You will be involved in work packages 1, 2 and 3 of the HighCALS programme. Work package 1 focuses on describing the nutritional management in UK health services for patients with ALS. Work Package 2 and 3 focus on the development of materials and resources to support the HighCALS intervention. The deliverables of each work package will be achieved through a mixed-methods research approach involving the conduct of; (i) systematic reviews; (ii) questionnaire surveys; and (iii) qualitative interviews/focus groups with patients, their informal carers/family members, and healthcare professionals involved in the nutritional care of people with ALS. Subsequent work as part of the programme grant (work package 4) will test and evaluate the HighCALS intervention.

You will also be responsible for implementation of research protocols and the delivery of a high quality of support to the research group. You will have the opportunity to assist in the design, set-up and conduct of other clinical projects, e.g. assist in writing protocols and other relevant supporting documents; assist with submissions for ethical, governance and regulatory approvals; be actively involved in participant consent, data collection and data analysis; and assist in research findings dissemination.
