    Post of Research Associate

    We are currently seeking to appoint a Research Associate to join an
    interdisciplinary team studying the biomechanical aspects of the measurement
    of spasticity and related neurological impairments. The person appointed
    will be expected to develop novel measurement techniques for use in the
    clinical setting and to develop the appropriate mathematical models to
    support this work. He/she will also be expected to play an active role in
    the supervision of a postgraduate student currently working in the team.
    The successful applicant will have a good (First Class or Upper Second)
    Honours degree in engineering or a related subject and to have (or be about
    to complete) a Higher Degree relevant to the research topic. The ability to
    work in an interdisciplinary team and a clinical environment is essential.
    The post is funded for a period of two years.
    The Centre for Rehabilitation and Engineering Studies (CREST) is an
    interdisciplinary research group within the Faculties of Engineering and
    Medicine. The current research portfolio is concentrated on upper limb
    biomechanics and associated aspects of neurological disability, particularly
    spasticity. The research is funded by Research Councils, European Union,
    Charities and Industry. There is a well equipped biomechanics laboratory in
    the Engineering Building and a clinical laboratory based in Hunters Moor
    Hospital, our major clinical partner.
