Applications are invited for the post of Research Assistant/Associate/Fellow to join a multi-disciplinary research team in severe and profound hearing loss within Hearing Sciences, based at the NIHR Nottingham BRC. Hearing Sciences consists of research teams led by an internationally recognised group of senior scientists, with research that spans the full range of approaches from basic auditory neuroscience to applied clinical research. 

The purpose of this role will be to work as part of a team to deliver research on the development and validation of a questionnaire to measure quality of life in teenagers and young adults who use cochlear implants in both ears. Cochlear implants are devices that restore useful aspects of hearing in people whose degree of hearing loss means they would not benefit from hearing aids.
