Dear colleagues

We are looking to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Neuropsychology for a 3 year project exploring whether computer-based tests of attention and memory administered in people's own homes can differentiate between people with Parkinson's disease and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. The project is funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust and is a collaboration between Durham University and the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the day-to-day management and operation of the project. Their primary job will be the recruitment and testing people with Parkinson's disease, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, and age-matched controls. Delivery of the project will require regular liaisons with the NHS project partners in Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Newcastle, and Gateshead, contacting and arranging appointments with prospective participants, explaining the project to prospective participants, and frequent travel to locations spread across the North East of England. The successful candidate will be responsible for collecting and storing data, data analysis, communicating the results of the project via presentation at scientific conferences and academic journal articles, and science-communication activities for non-academic audiences. The project will involve working in the science labs in the Department of Psychology and travelling to test participants in their own homes.
