The Division seeks to appoint a Research Audiologist or a Post-doctoral Research Associate to work within the NIHR BRC Hearing Health Theme and Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness (ManCAD) at the University of Manchester. This is a full-time post working on a research project funded by the NIHR BRC Hearing Health theme examining the effectiveness of interventions for people with little or no audiometric hearing loss, but with perceptual deficits (Obscure Auditory Dysfunction, “OAD”). Using a test battery developed within ManCAD, we will identify the likely best intervention and compare its effectiveness against other possible interventions suggested for OAD. The intervention will involve using features available on hearing aids. Data collection will take place in the Ellen Wilkinson building on the University of Manchester campus.

We are looking for an individual who has experience with both qualitative and quantitative research methods as well as an interest in, or understanding of, the technical aspects of hearing aid processing.  This means you could either have audiological clinical experience or have conducted person-centred audiological research.

This is an ideal opportunity for an individual seeking post-doc experience or for a clinical audiologist to gain some research experience in a vibrant research setting.

What you will get in return:

  • Fantastic market leading Pension scheme
  • Excellent employee health and wellbeing services including an Employee Assistance Programme
  • Exceptional starting annual leave entitlement, plus bank holidays
  • Additional paid closure over the Christmas period
  • Local and national discounts at a range of major retailers
