The Department of Allied Health Professionals is looking for a talented and ambitious research fellow to join us to work on a prestigious NIHR Programme Grant for Applied Research. The STAMINA (Supported exercise TrAining for Men wIth prostate caNcer on Androgen deprivation therapy) will investigate if a behaviour-change informed exercise intervention with extended support embedded in existing NHS prostate cancer care can confer long-term benefits in cancer-specific QoL and fatigue.
Working with 45 NHS sites, our partner Nuffield Health and 1000 men with advanced prostate cancer, the study is a huge and exciting challenge. The STAMINA programme is one of the largest studies anywhere in the world in exercise for people with cancer.
You will primarily lead on the co-ordination and delivery of the patient research pathways in the multi-centre STAMINA trial and undertake innovative quantitative assessments of intervention adherence, compliance and fidelity.
You must have a doctorate in relevant subject area (or close to completion) equivalent research experience and experience of working on clinical trials. Experience with quantitative research including fidelity assessments in complex interventions and the ability to work effectively both independently and collaboratively, both on projects and as part of a team is essential.
