Applications are invited for a new Research Associate post (0.5 FTE, fixed term 22 month contract) to work on a psychology research project exploring the role of family relationships in outcomes for children with rare genetic intellectual disability syndromes. Little is known about how family characteristics and relationships affect outcomes for children with rare genetic intellectual disability syndromes or how the children’s characteristics and behaviour affect parents’ wellbeing and sibling adjustment. The proposed research uses a range of quantitative methods to explore these issues. There is a particular focus on families with a child with Williams syndrome.
The project is funded by the Baily Thomas Charitable Fund and you will join a research team from the Universities of Edinburgh, Durham and Warwick. You will be based in the Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh. This post offers the opportunity to work with established researchers, to build a strong research profile through peer-review publications, and to impact positively on the lives of children and young people with intellectual disability and their families.
Informal enquiries should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing Date: 9th January 2017
