Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher to join a multidisciplinary research team to quantify muscle movement following stroke. The successful candidate will be working with stroke experts (consultants, physiotherapists and research nurses) from NHS Tayside and Grampian. The central aim of this research is to gather evidence of the distinct patterns of muscle movement following stroke, and to develop predictive algorithms that may allow for the identification of motor-control mechanisms and processes linked with type and side of lesion, sex, age, and clinical scores such as the Action Research Arm Test, proprioception, spasticity, light touch, and grip strength. The successful candidate will be expected to use specialist tool in muscle movement assessment: high density surfaceelectromyography and will be further expected to carry out its processing and analysis. While the initial research will be conducted in NHS Tayside (Ninewells Hospital) and NHS Grampia! n (Aberde en Royal Infirmary), the successful candidate will be based at the School of Science and Engineering in collaboration with the School of Health Sciences.
