Dear Auditory List, The National Biomedical Research Unit in Hearing in the UK has a number of opportunities available - please see below. Regards Stuart - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The UK's National Biomedical Research Unit in Hearing, NBRUH, is a newly established partnership between the University of Nottingham, the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and the MRC's Institute of Hearing Research. The Unit will employ approximately 25 academic, technical and administrative staff and is fully funded through to March 2012 by the National Institute of Health Research. We have a number of positions available, at levels ranging from Postdoctoral Research Fellow to Associate Professor, for researchers interested in translating basic auditory research findings into candidate interventions for patient benefit, or for exploring science-driven solutions to current clinical need. The overall focus of NBRUH is on application of auditory learning to rehabilitation of sensorineural hearing loss in infancy, in later adulthood, and in tinnitus. However, we actively encourage research that engages with these issues in novel and complementary ways, and from people who do not necessarily have an auditory science background. Several projects are getting underway, including ambitious attempts to harness the internet and mobile devices to provide testing and training at sites remote from the clinic. These posts are available immediately and run to 31 March 2012. Salary will be within the range £27,183 - £55,259 per annum, depending on qualifications and experience. Full and part-time posts are available and secondments to the Unit for an agreed time will also could be considered. If you believe you can contribute to this exciting area of health research and to the development of the NBRUH we would like to hear from you. Please see the NBRUH web site at: http://www.hearing.nihr.ac.uk/ or the link below for further information and a guide to the range of qualifications and experience you will need to offer. We would welcome an Email and a brief CV to Dr Heather Fortnum, NBRUH's Executive Director, Email: Heather.Fortnum@xxxxxxxx or Professor Dave Moore, Scientific Director, Email: DaveM@xxxxxxxx, outlining which level you wish to be considered for and what you could bring to our work. We will then contact you to discuss your application. Alternatively, if you would prefer an informal chat in the first instance to find out more about the NBRUH and what we can offer please Email Dr Fortnum or call on +44 (0)115 823 0500. For more details and/or to apply on-line please access: http://jobs.nottingham.ac.uk/NBRUH01 and indicate in your application the level for which you are applying.
