The Research Fellow will support the delivery of an externally funded project. The successful candidate will be joining an international meta-ethnographic research project that involves a network of investigators in the field of dementia working alongside community development projects involving people living with dementia. The three-year study includes six fieldsites in three countries that will critically explore the policy prominent notion of ‘dementia-friendly communities'. We aim to work closely with people living with dementia and their care partners at every level and stage of the research exploring the experience of living with dementia in a community setting. The project will first gather evidence at a local and national level before linking up with our sister teams in Canada and Germany to integrate our learning and produce recommendations to inform and enhance policy-making at local, national and international levels.

The project is currently set to run until the end of February 2026 and this post is offered on a fixed term basis at 0.85 FTE over a period of 25 months. The University of Greenwich will work in close partnership with the University of Stirling in Scotland, and internationally with the University of Giessen in Germany and the Universities of British Columbia and Lakehead in Canada. The researcher will be required to communicate and co-ordinate over distance with the different team members as well as engaging with local stakeholders and people living with dementia across Greenwich, southeast London and beyond.
