We are looking for an enthusiastic Research Assistant to join an existing research team who are delivering commercially funded research projects which aim to enhance physical performance and/or reduce musculoskeletal injuries in physically demanding occupations, currently delivering projects for the UK Armed Forces, emergency services and private sector.

Supported by academics from within the Institute of Sport, Nursing and Allied Health at the University of Chichester and an international network of subject matter experts, the successful applicant will primarily assist in data collection for projects, provide support to field studies, perform data analysis and undertake administrative tasks to support literature reviews and commercial activities.
