They are seeking applications from candidates with an exciting research plan that aligns with the work of experts in applied dementia research, for example the impact of dementia on independent living, driving, use of assistive technology, and impact on the wellbeing of family carers; development or delivery of assessments or non-pharmacological interventions. As such, you will work under the supervision of the most appropriate PI depending on your research focus, e.g. Prof Eneida Mioshi, Prof Michael Hornberger, A/Prof Naoko Kishita. You could also work in existing projects, if able to demonstrate your own expertise and added value in those.
You will need to demonstrate the ability to work independently and in a team with experience in scientific publications and conference presentations as well as experience in supporting peers and junior colleagues. You will need to be motivated with the ability to apply for funding, and other activities at postdoctoral level.
