Research Associate

Grade UE07: £37,099 – £44,263 per annum

Full-time: 35 hours per week, Fixed-term: available until 31 December 2025

We are looking for a Research Associate in Care Technologies in Context. This post will contribute to the joint research goals of the “Understanding the Person in Context” (WP4) and “Integrated Technologies of Care” (WP6) Work Packages within the Advanced Care Research Centre (ACRC) at the University of Edinburgh. The post-holder will work across the School of Informatics and the Advanced Care Research Centre with a base in both spaces. 

The postholder will drive the people-centred aspects of our research programme. More specifically, in collaboration with the other WP4 and WP6 researchers, they will work with end-users to uncover the barriers to i) the use of our developed and deployed devices (e.g., sensors), data and AI-based decision support tools in the care of the person in later life and ii) the support of ‘ageing in place’. 

This will involve helping with the implementation of various protocols for data collection from stakeholders (people in later life but also formal and informal carers etc.) as the work on the technologies of care moves into its real-world deployment phase.
