This post will be Fixed Term Contract for 22 months
Applications are invited for a Research Associate in the Diabetes & Nutritional Sciences Division. The Research Associate will be based at the Waterloo campus, working on a 22 month, fixed-term, research project funded by Medical Research Council investigating the role of dietary fibre in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
The aim of the project is to assess the microbiological and physiological effects of dietary fibre supplementation and whether this translates into symptom relief in people with irritable bowel syndrome.
This post provides an exciting opportunity to work on a high impact study and advance expertise in multi-centre recruitment, cutting edge technology and data analysis in the field of IBS. It would suit a candidate wishing to develop or further a career in clinical research in this area.
Applications are welcome from candidates with a PhD from a relevant health-related area and with experience working in a clinical setting or, exceptionally, from a health professional (dietitian or doctor) who may not have a PhD but who has extensive relevant experience in clinical practice and with significant research trajectory (in which case this project may be suitable to contribute towards a higher research degree e.g. MD, PhD, although degree fees are not included).
The selection process will include a panel interview.
Interviews are scheduled to be held early July.
