Founded in 1894, City, University of London is a global university committed to academic excellence with a focus on business and the professions and an enviable central London location.

City attracts around 20,000 students (over 40% at postgraduate level), from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.

In the last decade City has almost tripled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research. During this period City has made significant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university.

The culture at City is built on our shared core values, which means that all employees are expected to behave according to our values: “We care, We learn, We act.”


Adults aged 65 years and over are at high risk of urinary tract infections, which cause pain and can have serious complications if not treated promptly. We wish to develop an intervention to help people take action to prevent urinary tract infections or detect them promptly if they do occur. First, we need agreement from health professionals on what strategies should be advised.

We are seeking a research assistant to work on an eDelphi study that aims to gain consensus among health professionals on components of a self-management intervention for prevention and early detection of urinary tract infections in older adults.


Main responsibilities of the role will include: setting up a two-round eDelphi survey using Calibrum software; liaising with NHS Trusts and Health Professional organisations to recruit participants; collecting online data for both rounds of the eDelphi survey, summarising and communicating results from both eDelphi rounds and supporting the wider research project as required.

Person Specification

The candidate will hold a postgraduate degree in health psychology or an applied subject, such as health services research or applied health sciences.

The candidate will have experience of conducting online surveys including set- up, data collection, analysis and reporting study findings. Ideally, they will have experience of using Calibrum software to conduct eDelphi surveys, but if not, they will need to be confident in quickly learning how to use unfamiliar software. Additional tasks may include data analysis using NVivo and SPSS software.

The candidate will have excellent time management and interpersonal skills.

Additional Information

City offers a sector-leading salary, pension scheme and benefits including a comprehensive package of staff training and development.

The role is available from 5th August 2024.

Closing date: 23rd June 2024 at 11:59pm.

Interviews are scheduled for week commencing 15th July and will likely be on the 15th, 17th and 19th.
