The SI Network has a well established Researcher Support Committee, chaired by the Director for Researcher Development, Gemma Cartwright. The committee supports the SI Networks Grant Award Process as well as providing resources to support individuals who seek to develop their knowledge, understanding and research skills relating to Sensory Integration.
The vacancy will provide support for ‘Advanced Researchers’ who have experience in areas of investigation outside of SI, and wish to develop their knowledge, skills and training to further their engagement in SI related research. We are therefore looking for an individual who has a strong research background (not necessarily SI).
The two current committee members provide support for ‘Novice Researchers’ who are without formal training in SI, seeking to increase their knowledge about the SI evidence base. This includes (but is not exclusive to) parents, educators, service users and clinicians with introductory knowledge in SI. They also support ‘Early Career Researchers’ who have completed formal training related to SI, may have research experience but are new to SI-specific research.
The researcher support committee are also support by the Research Grant Review panel who have varying experience and areas of expertise. Details of the review panel is available at www.sensoryintegration.org.uk
The time commitment required for this role is detailed in the Job Description.
