Research Associate
Scale �15,885 - �17,921

Applications are invited for this full time Research Associate post in the
Department of Speech and Language Sciences. Half of the time in this post
will be allocated to a project funded by Lloyds TSB Foundation for
Scotland - CLEFTNET II. CLEFTNET II is an extension to a successful
earlier project, where speech and language therapists used
electropalatography (EPG) to assess and treat speech disorders associated
with cleft palate. The project established an innovative form of EPG service
delivery by networking all the cleft palate centres throughout Scotland to
QM University College. The purpose of the second phase of the project is to
establish further centres throughout Scotland in order to provide EPG
assessment and treatment for a wider range of client groups.

The remaining time will be allocated to a role as a Research Associate. This
post will involve conducting research in the area of instrumental analysis
of speech production, and writing academic papers with a view to
publication. Some teaching opportunities are also available.

The post will be offered for two years.
