We are looking for an enthusiastic psychology or nursing graduate who wishes to work on a project to improve education and support for patients with Chronic Renal Failure.
The purpose of the job is to carry out and analyze interview data and questionnaire-based studies with patients, their family members and renal health care professionals in order to identify their needs and barriers and facilitators to decision-making and preparation for dialysis. This information will then be used to develop an intervention and refine care pathways for patients.

Experience in one or more of the following is essential: systematic data collection and/or qualitative research; experience with patients; or previous employment/experience of research in a healthcare setting, and be fluent in Mandarin or Malay. Excellent interpersonal skills, self-motivation and organisational ability are essential requirements for the role.
The post is available from 1 January 2017, or as soon as possible thereafter, on a full-time basis for a period of 24 months in the first instance. Further funding to support the post may be available when The Kidney Confidence moves on to intervention stage. Interested candidates should submit their CV to the email below. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview.
Interested candidates are invited to contact Dr. Konstadina Griva for informal discussion about this post via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (6516 3156).
