An exciting opportunity has arisen in the MSk Lab to take forward the MSk Lab’s Treadmill and JointPro patient engagement activities.
The MSk lab aims to improve the clinical outcomes, understanding, and management of musculoskeletal health. Current research within the lab aims to assess the clinical outcomes of patients undergoing joint replacement surgery and develop new technologies, tools, and rehabilitation and surgical techniques.
This post will be responsible for the engagement with patients and clinical partners to maintain and increase recruitment to the JointPro and Treadmill projects.

The day to day running of JointPRO includes inviting patients to register with the system, assisting them where necessary, and prompting patients to score themselves when they are overdue.
The successful candidate must have a Bachelor’s degree in a science related field, and experience of working in a research setting with a good understanding of data and statistical analysis. Experience in project management and of working in a multidisciplinary team is also required.
