We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the Northeast of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.

The Role

We are now seeking to appoint an able and enthusiastic Senior Research Associate with relevant experience to work on an exciting national research project in the specific area of Dementia. Candidates should have a PhD in a relevant subject, ideally in the field of neurodegeneration or closely related, with substantial professional experience of research. You should also have experience of project management, including the preparation of proposals for research funding. You will be expected to undertake research both individually and collectively, and contribute to advancing the stage of knowledge and understanding within their particular area of expertise. You are expected to proactively collaborate with researchers and have a demonstrable record of productivity in high quality peer-reviewed literature.

You will work alongside leading data scientists, clinical practitioners, technology providers and researchers from the University of Newcastle, Alzheimers Research UK, University College London, University of Cambridge, Oxford Big Data Institute, the National Physical Laboratory, the Alan Turing Institute, the University of Exeter, and Mindstrong Health (US).

The Early Detection of Neurodegenerative diseases (EDoN) initiative is supported by a grant from Alzheimers Research UK and Gates Ventures to harness the potential of digital technologies to detect distinct dementia-causing diseases at their very earliest stage. Further information about the project and team can be found here: https://edon-initiative.org/

Although EDoN is specifically focused on the early detection of dementia-causing diseases, the projects approach is widely applicable to other branches of medicine. EDoN is taking advantage of advances in technology and AI to create scalable, personalised diagnostics based on low-cost, clinically-validated devices. During the course of the project, the integration of new digital devices into the NHS will be critical for its success.

This is a full-time or part-time post for a fixed period of 14 months.
