We are looking for a Research Associate to join our team working on cognitive, affective, and motivational factors that predict high impact chronic pain using data provided by the UK Biobank (Chronic High Impact Pain Project).

About the role

The post is part of the Advanced Pain Discovery Platform (APDP), which is funded by UKRI and Versus Arthritis. This overall project is in collaboration with the Universities of Keele, Manchester, and Aberdeen and is linked to our consortium project, CRIISP, led by Professor Ed Keogh. The overall aim of the APDP projects is to i) define chronic pain states and transitions, ii) identify variables implicated in those states and transitions, iii) undertake novel investigations, and iv) translate findings into novel treatments.

This post will join a vibrant research team at Bath, based in the Departments of Psychology and Health, and a larger consortium working across 8 Universities, working with the PI, Professor Christopher Eccleston.

As a member of Research Staff at the University of Bath, you will be encouraged to take up a minimum of 10 days professional development pro rata per year.

About you 

This role will ideally suit a health, social or experimental psychologist with quantitative skills who have an interest in measurement. You will have:

  • interest in using health data, and/or in the management and analysis of self-report and behavioural data,
  • interest in causal inference, structural equation modelling and the potential outcome framework (ideally, but not necessarily),
  • expertise in cognitive understandings of attention, memory, decision making and relevant analysis,
  • interest or experience with pain behavioural data.

About the Department 

The Bath Centre for Pain Research (BCPR) at the University of Bath is the home to a team of interdisciplinary researchers that investigate the effect that pain has on people’s lives. It has a focus on exploring the way psychological and social factors impact on pain, and how this understanding might translate into better ways to manage painful conditions. The core areas of work are in: cognitive processes in pain, social factors, child and family, evidence-based medicine and digital development.
