Applications are invited for a Temporary part-time post of Research Assistant within UCD School of Medicine

The ValueCare Project is a multi-site European research project, funded by Horizon2020, which seeks to co-design and deliver integrated care to older people living with chronic health conditions to improve their quality of life, as well as their care providers, and support the sustainability of healthcare systems in Europe.

The vision of the project is to co-design and test value-based integrated care with key stakeholders (older citizens, family or informal caregivers and health and social care providers) within a large-scale pilot. In Ireland, the ValueCare Project aims to test a supportive app amongst older citizens with mild or moderate frailty that features a wellness plan to promote healthy lifestyle, a virtual coach and connects them to their community-based healthcare providers.

The project is being undertaken in collaboration with the HSE's Integrated Care Programme for Older People (ICPOP). This part-time role (0.5 FTE) will involve participant recruitment, participant training to use the app and health outcome data collection. The post is expected to commence in February 2022.

Salary Range: Full time €27,109 - €30,743 at 0,5128 fte pro rata (€13,902 - €21,283) * Salary offered will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on 31ST January 2022
