Research Project: Growing Older, Planning Ahead

Posted on behalf of Professor Irene Tuffrey-Wijne:

“Hello!

I have started a new research project. It is called “Growing Older, Planning Ahead”.

We are looking for a researcher with learning disabilities to work on the project for 6 hours per week, for 2 years. 

The job is advertised on the Kingston University website: https://jobs.kingston.ac.uk/vacancy/research-assistant-431082.html

You can read more about the job in the attachment, which is in easy-read.

You can apply if you: 

  • have a learning disability
  • have experience in doing research, OR have done research training (for example, the research course we did at St George’s University last year)
  • are interested
  • are able to come to St George’s University in Tooting once a week (although whilst we are still in lockdown, we may need to work from home on Zoom etc.)

You can apply online but it’s quite complicated, so instead, you can use the easy-read application form. (That will be easier for me too!)

It is attached below.

You can send it back to me, and I will then send it to the job office at the university.

Your application needs to arrive by 9 December. We will hold interviews on 16 December.

If you need any help, you can ask me.

Please share this information if you know of anyone else who might be interested!”
