University of Leeds Location:
Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in clinical research? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities?
An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic Research Assistant or Research Fellow to work with leading musculoskeletal researchers at Leeds on a developing musculoskeletal research project, which focuses on understanding the structure-pain relationship in knee osteoarthritis.
You will be responsible for setting up and running a prospective study which will use MRI, x-ray and ultrasound, together with patient reported questionnaires, to examine the relationship between symptoms (pain and function) and structural pathology.
To be considered for the Grade 7 Research Fellow position you will have a PhD in a relevant subject area (e.g. science, epidemiology or health services research) and experience in clinical research. For the Grade 6 Research Assistant position you will have a first degree or Masters in a relevant subject area. You will also have excellent organisational skills, communication and knowledge of clinical research design and methods. A clinical qualification as an allied health professional would be an advantage.
