Aston University prides itself on its inter-disciplinary applied health research. In the recent REF, Aston’s submission was ranked 5th is Allied Health Professions.

Our research focus within a state of the art infrastructure (www.aston.ac.uk/lhs/research/centres-facilities/brain-centre) is on the development and validation of advanced neurophysiological methods which include Magnetoencephalography, Neurostimulation, Dense array EEG and MRI-based techniques, and advanced signal processing. Our aim is to aid diagnosis and management of neurological and psychiatric disorders. We work closely with the Children’s Epilepsy Surgery Programme at Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to work in this multidisciplinary group and contribute to develop research in clinical neurophysiology within its existing clinical programmes and provide support to teaching activities in neurophysiology/healthcare science. Aston provides both undergraduate and post graduate level teaching in the context of the Neurosensory Sciences programme and supports the advancement of neurophysiologists’ competence through a range of postgraduate teaching and distance learning modules.

You will ideally have a doctorate in a relevant area alongside experience of working in a clinical neurophysiology setting.  You will be committed to delivering an excellent student experience and contributing to the research success of the group through securing external funding and publishing in international journals.
