The School of Psychological Sciences and Health is seeking to appoint a Research Associate to a project awarded funding from the Multiple System Atrophy Trust (MSA Trust). You will work with Prof Anja Lowit (University of Strathclyde), and Prof Marios Hadjivassiliou (University of Sheffield) on the project ‘ClearSpeechTogether versus standard NHS speech intervention: A single, mixed method, rater blinded pilot randomised controlled trial for people living with MSA-C’. The project aims to assess the feasibility and acceptability of a novel online peer supported group treatment approach for people with MSA-C following successful piloting with other types of ataxia.

Under the general guidance of the PI and Co-I, you will be responsible for recruitment to the clinical trial in liaison with the Sheffield Ataxia Clinic, organise pre- and post-treatment data collection from people with MSA-C, conduct acoustic and coordinate perceptual evaluations of the data and evaluate the findings in discussion with the research team. You will write up research work for publication, individually or in collaboration with the team, and disseminate the results via peer reviewed journal publications, presentation at conferences and knowledge exchange events. Depending on your experience, you may provide treatment to participants or liaise with and coordinate other practitioners to provide this.

To be considered for the role, you will be educated to PhD level in an appropriate discipline such as phonetics, linguistics, or speech and language therapy, or have significant professional clinical experience in addition to a relevant degree. You will have knowledge of quantitative research methods and statistical analysis. Additionally, you should have experience of acoustic phonetic speech analysis using analysis software such as Praat. Experience of handling complex data and collecting research data from adults with speech impairment would be an advantage in this post. You will have an ability to conduct individual research work, to disseminate results and to prepare research proposals, with assistance if required. You will be able to plan, organise and prioritise your own workload and be able to work within a team environment. Finally, you will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to listen, engage and persuade, and to present complex information in an accessible way to a range of audiences.

This project aims start in January. Formal interviews for this post will be held in November 2022. Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Prof Anja Lowit (a.lowit@strath.ac.uk).
