Senior Postdoctoral Research Assistant / Project Manager
University of Oxford
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in the David Ray group within OCDEM, and the Sir Jules Thorn Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute on a highly prestigious NIHR research grant.
This programme builds on recent discoveries from our group relating to analysis, and intervention to promote optimal human sleep and circadian function. We are targeting a neglected area, with massive unmet medical need. We are focussed on delivering benefits to healthcare workers who work shifts, and who are suffering with shiftwork associated sleep disorder (SWD).
Our programme includes three initial workplans exploring systematic literature reviews, analysis of big data and human cohorts, and also analysis of the lived experience of healthcare workers exposed to shiftwork. The post holder will contribute mainly to the lived experience work package. In parallel we will develop and test interventions and the post holder will be expected to participate in this work also, and critically to bring forward evidence in support of specific interventions.
The post-holder will manage the project, keeping the three participating sites engaged with progress, synthesising evidence from the various strands, and liaising with stakeholders including the funder.
Outputs: There is an expectation that the candidate will publish in high- impact journals, present at international meetings, drive project progression, and capitalise on the joint academic stakeholders at the Universities of Oxford, Manchester, and Kings College, London. There is considerable scope to pursue exciting new research opportunities emerging from the main programme.
You will have an interest in or experience of sleep, or circadian research involving human participants, or population health, or psychological research aimed at human sleep questions. Some experience of sleep or circadian research is desirable. A relevant PHD/DPHIL is essential, the post-holder will also be expected to have familiarity with statistical methods, previous publications and experience of presentations. The post holder will work on a new, large interdisciplinary research programme.
The position is full-time and fixed-term until 30th November 2027, funded with by the NIHR.
The position will be based at University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.
