The Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research (OxINMAHR) is the research collaboration between Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Brookes University and Oxford University.

The mission of the Oxford Institute for Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research is to conduct world class research that will produce knowledge to enhance the health and wellbeing of the population of Oxford, Oxfordshire, The Thames Valley, and beyond. OxINMAHR researchers take a broad, holistic view of health, to encompass physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, cultural and social elements; and, consider health and illness to occur in the context of family life.

These 1 year posts are an excellent opportunity for a graduate nurse to contribute to research to enhance knowledge around dementia. The successful applicants will be supported to participate in many aspects of the research process, including literature searching, writing a proposal, contributing to ethical processes, data collection, data analysis and to contribute to writing articles and papers for publication and presentation at conferences. The project is funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.

The main task for the successful applicants is to support a mixed methods study into dementia that will involve a multitude of data collection approaches including interviewing patients and carers, and collecting data from existing records.

Applicants invited to interview will be required to present a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation on the ‘Research priorities for providing optimal nursing care for patients with dementia and their families’.

Secondment opportunities will be negotiated for Oxford University Hospitals Foundation NHS Trust employees.

Successful applicants will be expected to continue to work in their clinical posts within the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust hospitals with 400 hours being bought out to enable them to undertake this research activity
