Applications are invited for the position of full time Research Associate. You will work on a research project directed towards development of a national hearing screen for adults. This will include but not be limited to identification of a suitable population to screen, methods of screening and implementation, and examination of suitable follow-up (e.g. hearing devices, behaviour change, regular check-ups). The study is funded as part of the Hearing Health Theme of the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC).
This post will provide an exciting and flexible opportunity for a candidate with a PhD or other advanced degree in hearing science or a related discipline (e.g. psychology, neuroscience, medicine, physical, computer or data science) to address a research question of applied and urgent importance. A specific aim is to develop enough preliminary and published material to apply successfully for further and longer-term funding within two years.
