The School of Psychological Sciences and Health at the University of Strathclyde is seeking to appoint a Research Assistant to support a new exciting project aimed at delivering new peripheral biomarkers for the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease.
This project combines academic research and industry to investigate the utility of in-lab and in-home use of EEG (“brainwave”) recording and mobile cognitive games, for healthy adults and adults with mild cognitive impairment (aged 55+). If successful, this technology could be used to allow people to monitor and track their own brain health, linking it with lifestyle factors and allowing for recognition of cognitive decline at the very earliest stage.
The successful candidate will assist in the day-to-day running of the research project ‘Evaluation of in-home monitoring using the BrainWaveBank platform for people with Mild Cognitive Impairment’ under the supervision of Dr Mario Parra-Rodriguez, School of Psychological Sciences and Health, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.
Closing date for applications is 22nd September 2019
