The primary responsibility of this role is to deliver on industry innovation research where you will support all aspects of the project to investigate the neural basis of bilateral arm training after stroke using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and 3D human kinematics. This funded project brings together multidisciplinary expertise from the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), University of Glasgow (UOG), Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH), Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in the areas of Neuroscience, Psychology, Movement Science and Rehabilitation.
- Participate in and manage the research project with Principal Investigator (PI) and the research team members to ensure all project deliverables are met.
- Maintain accurate records of data, safeguarding the confidentiality of subjects, as necessary.
- Perform computational modelling and analysis of the neuroimaging and behavioural data, with guidance from senior colleagues as required.
- Provide ready access to all experimental data for the faculty researcher and/or supervisor.
- Prepare materials for submission to granting agencies, foundations and Ethics Committee review.
- Prepare progress reports for the PI and funding agency. Prepare other articles, reports, and presentations.
