We are seeking a research associate to join an exciting project at the interface between engineering and neuroscience. The multi-disciplinary team comprises Dr James Alix (clinical neurophysiology), Professor Ivan Minev (intelligent healthcare technologies) and Dr Richard Mead (basic neuroscience). The project involves developing a wearable technology using advanced 3D printing to deliver electrical stimulation to mouse models of the devasting neurological condition, motor neurone disease.

You will be an innovative biomedical engineer, well organised and passionate about creating new technology for health-related applications. Working in the laboratory of Professor Minev you will be responsible for generating and testing your designs of the wearable. Working with Drs Alix and Mead you will then lead in vivo testing in a preclinical model of motor neurone disease.

You will have a strong background in biomedical engineering or a related discipline. The ideal candidate would have experience in working with preclinical models and conducting behavioural tests. However, training in animal work can be provided and it is not expected that the appointed candidate will have complete experience across all aspects of the project. As a result, the project represents an excellent opportunity for a motivated biomedical engineer to gain further experience and skills.

You should be strongly motivated, self-driven, able to accept direction and be an excellent team player. Good communication, written and interpersonal skills are expected.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
