With your background in quantitative methods you will join a vibrant team of statisticians, psychometricians and SAS programmers who partner with a broader team of qualitative researchers/PRO measurement specialists. The ideal candidate will have a passion for learning and applying new quantitative methods, with mentorship from senior staff overseeing your development into a psychometric expert. In an exciting and varied role – you will also be involved in study design, writing Psychometric Analysis Plans and working with the SAS programmers to prepare associated table shells. You will also be involved in preparing and/or reviewing psychometric analyses and providing interpretation of results. You will provide input on the psychometric elements of study reports, publications, and other deliverables and also serve as a psychometric consultant internally for the wider Adelphi Values research team. There will be the opportunity to develop your programming skills in SAS software. You will also be encouraged to publish in academic journals, present work externally at conferences, and develop your knowledge through ongoing training and academic collaboration.
