What we are looking for
We are looking for a highly motivated Psychometrician with a passion for applying their knowledge to support development, validation and interpretation of COA measures.

Knowledge of advanced psychometric methods including factor analysis and item response theory/Rasch analysis and experience of performing analyses in statistical software (e.g. SAS, Stata, R, Mplus) would be beneficial but not essential. Experience in providing input on Statistical Analysis Plans, preparing associated table shells and performing and/or reviewing psychometric analyses would be advantageous. Previous experience of working in a healthcare consultancy or academic group would be desirable, but we are open to training the right candidate with transferable skills from other disciplines.

How you fit in
With your background in quantitative research you will join a vibrant team of psychometricians, statisticians and SAS programmers who partner with a broader team of qualitative researchers/COA measurement specialists. In an exciting and varied role you will be involved in study design, writing psychometric study protocols, writing Statistical Analysis Plans and working with the SAS programmers to prepare associated table shells. You will also be involved in providing and/or reviewing psychometric analyses, providing input to the interpretation of results and discussing with our clients. In your role you will serve as a psychometric consultant internally for the wider Adelphi Values research team and help deliver internal training on relevant methodologies. You will also be encouraged and supported to present work externally at conferences and via peer-reviewed publications. Opportunities to develop your knowledge through ongoing training and academic collaboration will also be provided.
