Research Coordinator - EEG Neurofeedback (NHS National Institute of Health
Research grant)
A novel neurofeedback based intervention to reduce neglect and improve
function in stroke patients.
Reference Number:	NHS Jobs 344-1942MZC
Based at William Harvey Hospital and King's College Hospital

The Post holder will assist in research to assess the applicability of
EEG-neurofeedback training to the rehabilitation of acute stroke patients
with spatial neglect. The post will involve recruiting patients from stroke
units, conducting the neurofeedback training sessions on a daily basis
(excluding weekends), and conducting standardised clinical assessments on
patients before and after training, involving receiving and logging complex
and sensitive information. Planning and co-ordinating the research
activities within time constraints is important. There may also be the
opportunity to assist with an fMRI arm to the project.

The successful candidate will ideally have a background in a relevant life
science, (e.g. medicine, psychology or cognitive neuroscience) or in
therapy, and an understanding of clinical research in NHS settings and
experience working with clinical populations. Previous experience with and
understanding of EEG and/or the principles of EEG-neurofeedback is highly
desirable. In addition, a Criminal Records Bureau check and a driving
license is required for this position.

This project is a multi-site study taking place in hospitals in South
London and East Kent. It is a collaboration between Dr David Smithard at
William Harvey Hospital, Prof Lalit Kalra at King's College Hospital, and
Prof John Gruzelier and Dr Karina Linnell at Goldsmiths, University of
London. Informal enquiries can be addressed to Karina Linnell
(k.j.linnell at gold.ac.uk).

The interviews will be held on the 17th May 2010.
Please note that this position will close on or before this date, depending
on the response that we receive. Therefore, please submit your application
promptly - preferably by 26th April - to ensure that you are considered for
this post.
