Ref: ATR 1315

This Lectureship/Senior Lectureship in Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation has been created to strengthen the School’s internationally leading rehabilitation research activity within the rehabilitation research group and to provide a substantial contribution to the School of Health Sciences’ education programme at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level.
The group’s research programme includes development and testing of outcome measures (Norwich Patellar Instability Score, Impact of Hand Nerve Disorders Scale), clinical trials of interventions (hand oedema, hip and knee osteoarthritis, sensory impairment of the hand) and prognostic research (shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome).

Professional registration (HCPC) is not essential and candidates with other rehabilitation science related expertise are welcomed, e.g. biomechanics, movement control, health psychology, public health and epidemiology. As well as a focus in MSK rehabilitation you will have the opportunity to work alongside research teams in neurorehabilitation, health promotion, dementia care and the care of older people, and with others across the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Norwich Research Park.

This post represents an outstanding opportunity for career development for an early career or more established researcher. All aspects of your academic professional development will be supported, you will have the opportunity to develop your own research programme, and to contribute to the leadership of our research group. We value partnership working with our national and international research collaborators, with our local healthcare trusts and other stakeholder groups.
