We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate or Fellow to join the NIHR MindTech MedTech Co-operative. MindTech is a collaboration between the University of Nottingham, Institute of Mental Health and Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust that aims to accelerate the development and adoption of new technology for mental health and dementia by bringing together clinicians, patients, academics and industry.

 

The successful candidate will be the lead MindTech researcher on Brain+, a recently-funded European project which is focusing on a newly designed brain coaching app, based upon research into dementia, designed for older users, and with a focus on delaying cognitive decline. The app has different modes to enhance memory, attention, perception, emotion, and logical thinking, and combines these with personalised training plans and advanced analytics. The role holder will work closely with Nottingham colleagues within MindTech and the school of Computer Science, as well as our European partners.

 

This post is an exciting opportunity to join an established and vibrant research group. The person appointed will be a highly-motivated individual with strong written and verbal communication skills, who is able to interact sensitively and professionally with a range of healthcare technology stakeholders including healthcare professionals, industry representatives, policy makers and patients.

 

Candidates must hold an undergraduate degree (upper 2nd or 1st class) in a relevant health or social science discipline (or equivalent) and a PhD (or be near to completion) or equivalent in a relevant area. Strong qualitative research skills and knowledge of healthcare systems are essential and knowledge of health economic methods would be an advantage.

 

This is a full-time post (36.25 hours per week), or part-time to a minimum of 29 hours per week, and will be offered on a fixed term contract for a period of 24 months.

 

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Jennifer Martin, tel: 0115 8467255 or email jennifer.martin@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
