Applications are invited for a Specialist Human Studies Technician post in human exercise and metabolic physiology, within the David Greenfield Human Physiology Unit, Division of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience, School of Life Sciences, University of Nottingham.

The appointee of this UKRI funded position will play a leading role in the delivery of a project aimed at providing ground-breaking insights into longitudinal physiological and metabolic adaptations that occur over the course of prescribed physical activity and inactivity interventions in people at risk of inactivity-induced health decline.

The role is focussed on the delivery of a longitudinal study involving human volunteers (55 – 65 year old) to discover the pattern and magnitude of change in metabolic, morphological and physiological parameters in response to 6 months controlled chronic inactivity and physical activity, at whole body and organ levels. The study will involve assisting with volunteer recruitment and screening, and taking a lead role in the delivery of exercise training and physical inactivity interventions over the course of 6 months intervention under highly controlled experimental conditions. The appointee will also play an important role in the collection and delivery of physiological and metabolic end-point measurements and biological samples before and over the course of the physical activity interventions.

The post holder will be expected to have significant research expertise in human physiology and metabolism, and experience of working as part of a research team. This will include using approaches, methodologies and techniques appropriate to the proposed human exercise and metabolic physiology research. The appointee will be expected to write research reports and give communications of the research, and also contribute to published outcomes. The role holder will have the opportunity to use their initiative and creativity to develop and extend their own research skills as part of the research team.

The appointee should hold a Degree, or equivalent in relevant subject area, or extensive experience in conducting human in vivo physiology projects. The person will ideally have skills in handling and processing blood and muscle samples in human volunteer studies.

The post is offered full time (36.25 hours per week) for 36 months. Job share arrangements may be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Paul Greenhaff, email paul.greenhaff@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
