<div> <p></p><p>The Nuffield Department of Women&#8217;s &amp; Reproductive Health seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Neuroimaging and Pain Data Analysis to join the Translational Research in Pelvic Pain (TRiPP) project, which aims to reconceptualise chronic pelvic pain (CPP) in the context of what is known about chronic pain; exploring function and dysfunction in a variety of systems and integrating these findings with the ultimate aim of identifying the underlying pain generating and maintaining pathways. The findings from the clinical work package will then be back translated in preclinical work packages with the aim of optimising preclinical models and ultimately improving the drug-discovery pathway.</p><br> <p>As the Pain Data Analyst on the project you will be responsible for either performing or overseeing the analysis of all the pain related data collected at the four sites participating in TRiPP. These data include: questionnaires, quantitative sensory testing, other physiological measures, autonomic nervous system measures, and fMRI scans. You will work closely with the DPhil students working on the pain parts of the project and also with the team (Postdoctoral Research Assistant and DPhil students) working on the omics data to subsequently integrate the pain and omics data for the final analyses</p><br> <p>You will have a PhD (or close to completion) in a relevant subject area, for example, a clinical application of fMRI or fMRI methods as well as expertise in analysis and interpretation of fMRI data. You will have strong scientific computing skills for data and image analysis, the capacity to deliver high quality research outputs as well as the ability to work independently within multi-disciplinary teams. You will be self-motivated with good organisation and time management skills, flexible to learn new skills and develop novel approaches for analysis and able to work effectively under pressure.</p><br> <p>This position is full-time and fixed-term for 2 years in the first instance. The post is available from March 2020. Applications for flexible working arrangements are welcomed and will be considered in line with business needs.</p><br> <p>You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.</p><br> <p>The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Monday 28 October 2019.</p> </div>
