Together with the International Longevity Centre UK, we are conducting a research project into finance management in people living with dementia. The project starts on the 1st of September for 12 months, and the research component led by Dr Clarissa Giebel at the University of Liverpool will involve recruiting and collecting qualitative data from unpaid dementia carers about finance management skills of their relatives with dementia. We will write up the findings, combined with data from people living with dementia, for an academic paper and will produce a lay summary. Public involvement is a key element of this project. The Research Associate will complete an ethics application to the University of Liverpool ethics committee, recruit people with dementia with mental capacity and unpaid carers via existing networks from the PI (Dr Giebel), conduct remote telephone or Zoom interviews with unpaid carers, analyse the data jointly with the PI, and contribute to the write up of the findings for an academic paper. The Research Associate will also work with two public advisers (unpaid carers) in all stages of the research project. You should have a PhD in Psychology, Public Health, or a related field, or relevant experience equating to PhD level. You should have qualitative interview and analysis skills. The post is available for 6 months part-time at 0.5fte.
