We are seeking to recruit a full time Research Associate to support the programme of work that we are leading on from Bath.
The role will initially involve identifying the psychosocial constructs that impact most on pain, and how it develops. This will require you to draw on existing knowledge, help lead literature reviews, and involve participant involvement.
The main part of the role requires you to be responsible for design, recruitment, testing and monitoring of people with clinical pain in new studies. There will be a focus on cognitive, emotional and behavioural factors in pain, and will cover both laboratory-based, as well as clinical pain investigations. Therefore, experience designing and running both laboratory, as well as experience in clinical/health research would be desirable.
There is the possibility of including digital data capture, such as online experiments or sensors, to measure pain outcomes. The post will involve working with complex datasets, requiring skills in quantitative data analysis. It will also involve working across the wider consortium to harmonise inclusion of pain related measures and analysis. You will need to take an active part in the work of the whole consortium including through participation at events and workshops, providing support and advice in keeping with their role and level of appointment, as well as engaging with patient and public focus groups and other stakeholders.
