Research Assistant Grade Jobs Vacancy at University Liverpool Liverpool Jobs Details:
You will have experience of human EEG and potentially other neuroimaging experience to work with us on the Models of Nociceptive Plasticity in Chronic Pain (MoNoPly) project. This project will develop and evaluate new methods for detecting pain-related neuroplasticity in the brain in patients who suffer from chronic pain. The project will involve neuroimaging (with EEG and fMRI) and mathematical modelling of how the brain learns from and adapts to pain sensing (nociception). The MoNoPly project is funded by Arthritis Research UK and led from the University of Liverpool, also involving collaborators at the University of Manchester and the Walton Centre (NHS).
You will take on responsibility for data collection, analysis and co-ordination of the project under the supervision of Dr Christopher Brown (lead for the project based at the University of Liverpool). You should have a degree (2.1 or above) in neuroscience, psychology, medicine or a relevant area of health-related science in addition to relevant research experience, for example as part of (but not restricted to) a relevant MSc or PhD. You should have a detailed knowledge and experience of EEG research methods and analysis using Matlab-based toolboxes, as well as skills (or ability to develop skills) in custom Matlab coding. We are seeking an individual with experience of working with study participants in relevant settings; in particular, experience relevant to applied research in sensitive health or clinical settings is highly desirable.
The post is available for 3 years and offers the opportunity to join a excellent inter-disciplinary team and to develop new skills that would be highly desirable for someone with research career aspirations in the fields of pain research or neuroscience/psychology more broadly. You will be supported to develop your skills and knowledge relevant to your future career plans.
