    Dear all, biomechanics based research fellow position now available.

    Research Fellow Grade 7 (fixed term 27 months)
    29,704 - 35,469

    An opportunity has arisen for a research fellow to work within the
    partnership between the University of Salford and SSL International Ltd.

    The successful candidate will be trained in a discipline related to foot
    health and ideally a registered health professional. They have existing
    research experience with a PhD or equivalent experience. They will be able
    to demonstrate prior experience of both experimental biomechanics research
    (for example, motion analysis, EMG, foot pressure) and clinical research
    relevant to insoles, footwear or other aspects of foot care. They will have
    an understanding of clinical biomechanics as it applied to the foot and
    lower limb and demonstrate knowledge on a range of foot and lower limb
    health and disease topics. They will have experience of dealing with
    patients and members of the public participating in research.

    Specific duties include:

    * To undertake biomechanics and clinical research projects related to lower
    limb clinical biomechanics.
    * To help conceive and then to plan and deliver experimental research
    projects related to the aims of the partnership with SSL International.
    * To work within the project timescales and agreed work plans.
    * To collect, process and interpret biomechanics and clinical data relevant
    to the aims of the research projects within the partnership with SSL
    * To ensure that research is conducted to appropriate ethical and governance
    standards as defined by the University.
    * To liaise with other Research Fellows and academic staff employed in the
    project in a manner such that there is collective support for all aspects of
    the partnership.
    * To report on technical research issues to a grade 8 Research Fellow.
    * Where necessary, to present the technical research work of the University
    to other University staff/students and potentially the external partner.
