  • Job vacancy - Loughborough UK

    We currently have the following job vacancy:

    Research Assistant
    Long term vibration dose for vehicle operators
    Department of Human Sciences

    Commencing salary up to £19,486 per annum

    Long term exposure to vibration and mechanical shocks might lead to
    increased risk of back pain. In an attempt to reduce the risk, proposed EU
    legislation will limit occupational exposures to vibration for many
    industrial sectors. This 18 month project, funded by the Health and Safety
    Executive, will assess the physical environments (vibration and mechanical
    shocks) experienced by vehicle drivers over full working days using current
    and proposed techniques of predicting health risk.

    It is envisaged that the post will appeal to people with a background in the
    human sciences, ergonomics or engineering. The successful candidate will
    have good IT, written and inter-personal skills, with an ability to
    collaborate with industrial contacts. Applicants should have a 2:1 or
    masters degree in a relevant discipline, be well organised and with
    experience of using MS Office and statistics software. The successful
    candidate will have the opportunity to register for a part-time PhD.

    Knowledge in the following areas would be advantageous but is not essential:
    digital signal processing, LabVIEW, human response to vibration, human
    physiology, human biology, ergonomics, health and safety and biomechanics.
