Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a background in musculoskeletal research? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic Research Fellow to work with leading musculoskeletal researchers at Leeds on a developing musculoskeletal research project, which focus on non-pharmacological interventions for improving the treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions.

You will be a key contributor in helping to develop grant applications to secure income for research arising from Professor Philip Conaghan’s Osteoarthritis (OA) and Non-Inflammatory Arthritis Research Group.

You will have a first degree and PhD (or equivalent) in a subject area relating to science, psychology or health services research and have post-doctoral research experience in musculoskeletal research. A clinical qualification as an allied health professional would be an advantage.
