Research Assistant
WIN, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, OX3 9DU
Grade 6: £29,614 - £35,326 gross per annum
We are seeking a research assistant to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying improvements in vision in stroke survivors with visual loss. You will be part of an ongoing project led by DPhil student Hanna Willis and Professor Holly Bridge, based at the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN), part of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford. The study forms part of a collaboration with Professors Krystel Huxlin and Marco Tamietto.

You will conduct research to evaluate the potential of visual training to improve visual loss after stroke and the neural mechanisms that underlie any changes. The study involves three in person visits to Oxford at baseline, 6-months and 9-months and extensive visual training between baseline and 6 months. The project uses a range of techniques to understand changes between these time points, including psychophysics, MRI and clinical visual field tests.

The role will involve assisting the current DPhil student with recruitment of stroke survivors with visual loss, processing of training data and data collection across study visits. The latter includes administering computerised psychophysics tests, acquiring brain imaging data in stroke survivors and administering clinical visual field tests. During the period of the post, you will be encouraged to develop your career and will have the option to participate in WIN and University of Oxford training programmes and opportunities relevant to early career researchers.

The post is full-time for a fixed term of 9 months in the first instance.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Friday 24th September will be considered.

Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.

We strive to run an inclusive and diverse research group and encourage applications from underrepresented groups and from all sections of the community.
