Recruitment for members of a new Research Advisors Involvement Group for the NIHR Three Schools’ Dementia Research Programme

We are recruiting members to join a new Research Advisors Involvement Group (RAIG). We are looking for members from a wide range of backgrounds with a variety of experiences of dementia and related health and care services in England to support a new Dementia Research Programme.

Our Research Programme

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funds three research Schools:

  1. School for Primary Care Research (SPCR);
  2. School for Public Health Research (SPHR); and
  3. School for Social Care Research (SSCR).

These Three Schools are working together to commission and carry out research on dementia that will help improve the lives of people living with dementia, carers and professionals across primary care, public health and social care, and to reduce the risk of dementia.

The Three Schools’ Dementia Research Programme commissions internationally leading research to provide decision-makers with the evidence and information they need to make decisions to improve the health of, and the care provided to, people living with dementia and their carers. The Programme runs from September 2021 until April 2024. Our research programme covers dementia-related practice across different groups and settings. Research could be about any aspect of prevention, diagnosis, treatment, support or care, and related health, social care and other services.

The Role

To support the Programme, we are looking to appoint:

  • an involvement lead; and
  • up to 12 members for our Research Advisors Involvement Group (RAIG).

You can apply for both positions or just one of these.

Both the Involvement Lead and member of the Group will be supported by the Programme Director and Research Programme Officer.

The Involvement Lead will provide support for the Programme’s management on public involvement and be a member of the RAIG. Members of the group will help to plan and shape public involvement for our Dementia Research Programme, develop and review our public involvement strategy, support us with commissioning research, and advise on individual research projects.

Applications are requested by 23 November 2021 (extended deadline).

A meeting with applicants will take place online in late November.
