Salary: £30,395 - £39,610 per annum

Closing Date: 1 January 2019

This is a 3 year fixed term Research Associate position (with a possible 2 year extension) and provides an exciting opportunity for an early career scientist who is interested in human movement, wearable technology and digital outcomes. You will be expected to work in an interdisciplinary group who has an established international reputation in gait analysis and wearable technology analytics.

You will work as part of a high profile international EU-H2020-JTI-IMI2 funded collaborative study (MOBILISE-D). MOBILISE-D consists of 35 partners from Academia and industry (EPFIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries)), from 11 countries with long, successful collaboration, combining the requisite expertise to address the technical and clinical challenges.

You will be expected to provide technical assistance, manage the transfer and analysis of gait data collected with wearable technology, novel and traditional gait analysis tools (e.g. instrumented mat, etc.). You will be mentored by an experienced member of academic staff throughout their term in one of our Research Institutes. The ideal candidate should have a PhD in Biomedical Science, Movement Science or related field, experience working with wearable sensor data and digital outcomes; proficient and independent signal processing, mathematical, statistical and computational skills, and ability to work independently and as part of a team.

The 'Brain and Movement (BAM) Research Group' are based in the Clinical Ageing Research Unit, a translational clinical research platform jointly run and managed by Newcastle University and Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

 

The University holds a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality.  The University also holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers, and is a member of the Euraxess initiative supporting researchers in Europe.
