We are looking for an enthusiastic and proactive engagement co-ordinator to manage participant engagement and retention for our PREDICT-PD study.
PREDICT-PD is a large cohort study jointly led by Queen Mary University of London and University College London, which aims to identify people at risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, years before the condition is currently detected. In the longer term this will mean we can treat it at a much earlier stage. We are currently recruiting 10,000 participants aged 60-80 who do not have Parkinson’s, to answer an annual online questionnaire and other tests via the internet and in the post.
The successful candidate will be great at engaging with the public, and should able to produce materials for a variety of platforms (social media, newsletters, blogs etc) that will help us recruit and retain participants in the PREDICT-PD study.
This post is based in the Preventive Neurology Unit (PNU), which has been set up with the aim of developing clinical trials to prevent neurological disease. It is part of the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, which has a focus on academic discipline, research, the translation of research into public health strategies and the practical implementation of such strategies – all dedicated to the reduction of disease and disability.
The post is 40% FTE and fixed term until 15 May 2021. Starting salary will be in the range £34,220-£40,194 pro-rata per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave pro-rata and a pension scheme.
