We have an upcoming exciting opportunity for a Social Scientist to join the CNPI AMR team! They will be working with Dr Julia Bielicki as part of the Antimicrobial Resistance group of the Centre for Neonatal and Paediatric Infection (CNPI) at St George’s, University of London. They will be involved in jointly leading on the qualitative research components of the NeoSep-ADAPT project funded by the NIHR. NeoSep-ADAPT focuses on newborn babies in hospital with neonatal sepsis.

The overall goal of the project is to develop an adaptive platform trial that could rapidly study multiple types of treatment for neonatal sepsis while reducing the burden on babies, families, and staff. The Social Scientist will be leading on the construction of a roadmap for facilitating family and clinician engagement with the platform trial. They will also be involved in two additional workstreams, namely the streamlining of eligibility criteria and outcome measures and the development of a modular risk-based approach towards safety assessments in a trial. There may be opportunities to support or collaborate on qualitative research taking an implementation science perspective in other large neonatal projects within CNPI such as the NeoSep1 trial and NeoIPC.
