We are looking for someone to join our existing team of researchers from within the Institute of Applied Sciences to cover a period of maternity leave. The successful post holder will primarily work with the existing team and engage with colleagues at the University and external stakeholders and customers. Tasks undertaken will include the co-ordination of applied exercise science research, provide support to field studies, perform data analysis, and undertake administrative tasks to support literature reviews and commercial activities. There will be travel and overnight stays away from home required, primarily in the UK and possibly overseas. There will also be a requirement to support the delivery of lectures, seminars and practical classes within the Institute of Applied Sciences and contribute to the supervision of undergraduate and post graduate research projects.
