Duties and responsibilities

The ADVANCE Study is an innovative study and the first of its kind in a UK military casualty population.

This 20-year cohort study will offer a uniquely comprehensive description of the long-term physical and psychosocial outcomes of blast and other battlefield trauma. This post has been designed to coincide with the completion of baseline measures, meaning that data for all >1100 participants will be available to the post holder to investigate the effects of major conflict trauma on musculoskeletal health.

The successful applicant will be expected to make infrequent visits to the Defence Medical Rehabiltiation Centre at Stanford Hall, near Loughborough, the physical home of the ADVANCE Study.
