An opportunity to join an established project team to develop and improve a specialist clinical service for pregnancy after loss.
We are looking for a Research Assistant to join a research project directed by Prof Alexander Heazell and Dr Debbie Smith, entitled ‘Evaluating the need for non-medical support for women and their partners during the perinatal period in pregnancies following a previous stillbirth or late miscarriage, funded by the Mitchell Charitable Trust and The Kallipateira Moorhouse Foundation. This programme of work builds upon work to describe women’s experiences in pregnancies after a previous experience of stillbirth or neonatal death. It will be based in the Rainbow Clinic, a specialist clinical service for families whose baby or babies have died in a previous pregnancy.
Your role will be to work closely with the PIs, to develop and refine the research protocol, apply for requisite research approvals, to administer questionnaires, conduct research interviews and analyse these to identify partner’s experiences and needs in pregnancy after loss. You will also work with the project steering group to make plans to disseminate findings.
You will have an ability to plan, organize and undertake a complex workload with multiple and competing priorities including managing a qualitative and quantitative study, competent computer skills including relevant scientific and analytical software and an understanding of ethical and clinical governance procedures.
