If you have experience in literature reviewing and synthesis and ideally knowledge of dementia care services or research, we would welcome your application. If successful, you will be expected to manage your own activities and prioritise your workload within agreed objectives to ensure that all activities are completed to deadlines. You may be required to write up research work for publication in collaboration with senior colleagues and disseminate results as appropriate to your discipline by, for example, conference presentations and peer reviewed publication.

This post is funded by a research grant from the Alzheimer’s Society to undertake a realist review of what makes community interventions for people affected by dementia sustainable; in what circumstances and why? A realist review is designed to indicate ‘what works for whom, in what circumstances, in what respects and how?’ This theory-driven approach to evidence synthesis provides a way of explaining how context influences outcomes - represented as context + mechanism = outcome.
