This is an exciting opportunity to join a vibrant community of dementia researchers. 

This is co-funded post between the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England (ARC EoE) and the University of East Anglia (UEA). The NIHR ARC East of England is a collaboration between the host trust, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, and the Universities of Cambridge, East Anglia, Hertfordshire and Essex in partnership with other health and social care organisations, industry, and charities across the region. The aim of the ARC EoE is to support applied health and care research, implementation and capacity building at a local, regional, national and international level. The post will align with the ARC EoE Ageing and Multimorbidity Theme.

This is an excellent opportunity to develop the next generation of applied dementia researchers. The successful candidate will join a regional cohort of postdocs in applied dementia research from our ARC East of England, based at our partner universities. This regional cohort, in turn, will be part of a national cohort. Read more about the funding award here

At the UEA, we are seeking applications from candidates with an exciting research project that aligns with the work of experts in applied dementia research and the ARC EoE Ageing and Multimorbidity Theme.  As such, the successful candidate will work under the supervision of the most appropriate PI depending on their research focus. Some examples include TIMES (Killett), ReCOVERY (Poland), APPLE TREE (Minihane), TASKed (Mioshi), DECISION (Hornberger), iACT4Carers (Kishita), CareCoach(Cross). 

Candidates could also work in existing projects, if able to demonstrate their own expertise and independence, and added value in these existing projects. 

Please outline your project in your cover letter. We encourage early contact prior to application, so that applicants can discuss their postdoctoral projects with potential supervisors. 

The post is offered on a full-time, fixed term basis from 1 April 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter, for 2 years.    

UEA offers a variety of flexible working options and although this role is advertised on a full-time basis, we encourage applications from individuals who would prefer a flexible working pattern including annualised hours, compressed working hours, part-time, job share, term-time only and/or hybrid working.  Details of preferred hours should be stated in the personal statement and will be discussed further at interview.

Closing date:  30 January 2023

The University is committed to diversifying its workforce. As examples, we already hold an Athena SWAN Silver Institutional Award in recognition of our advancement towards gender equality. We also have a Vice-Chancellor led Taskforce on Tackling Racism and a Race Equality Charter Working Group which support our work on race equality. Our aim is to submit to the Race Equality Charter in 2024.
