An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Associate to join the School of Biological Sciences to conduct studies on the impact of dietary bioactives in osteoarthritis models. 

Increasing evidence points to diet as a key modifiable risk factor in the progression of osteoarthritis (OA). A diet rich in plant foods associates with positive outcomes for joint health, but robust laboratory data to support this are fragmented. 

We will address this by developing the Dietary Screening Bioactives in Arthritis (DISCOVER) Platform. This will use an automated workflow using Design of Experiment methodology to allow multifactorial screening of dietary compounds against surrogate outcome measures of osteoarthritis. This approach reflects the complexities of dietary component interactions in a laboratory in vitro setting. 

As a Research Associate you will contribute to the research programme, analyse and interpret data, write up results and present information on research progress and outcomes.

You will have a graduate level qualification, equivalent qualification or experience in a Biology and must be able to work in a proactive and results driven manner in a high paced environment. You will also have strong interpersonal and communication skills, the ability to analyse and interpret data and work effectively as part of a team. Advanced skills directly relating to this research area and previous research experience would be advantageous.  

This full-time post is available on a fixed term basis for up to 18 months.

Further information on our great benefits package, including 44 days annual leave inclusive of Bank Holidays and University Customary days (pro rata for part-time), can be found on our benefits page.

Closing date: 2 January 2024
