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 North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
An exciting opportunity for an early career scientist who is interested in human movement, wearable technology and digital outcomes. You will work in an interdisciplinary group who has an established international reputation in gait analysis and wearable technology analytics.
You will have experience working with wearable sensor data and digital outcomes; proficient and independent signal processing, statistical and computational skills, and ability to work independently and as part of a team.
You will be mentored by an experienced member of academic staff throughout your term in one of our Research Institutes.
Working as part of a research team supporting a range of projects aiming to look at the utility of wearable technology and digital mobility outcomes of real-world gait and physical activity to detect clinically relevant changes to post-diagnostic care, interventions and potential disease modifying effects.
You will provide training and technical assistance, manage the transfer and analysis of gait/physical activity data collected with wearable technology, novel and traditional gait analysis tools (e.g. instrumented mat, etc.) and publish and present key findings from the projects.
The post is offered on a full time, fixed term basis for a period of 36 months.
