Aspire is proud to have entered into a partnership with UCL (University College London) and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital to create three Aspire Lecturer/Senior Lecturer posts at UCL. Disability and technology will be the research focus for the posts, with the principle aim to create cost effective technologies to improve the independence of disabled people and improve their quality of life. A particular focus will be on the effects of ageing with a spinal cord injury, an area where more research is welcomed.
The Aspire Lecturers/Senior Lecturers will be able to work across all relevant faculties within UCL and strive to transfer quality academic research into practical solutions for the real world. Our Lecturers will be based at the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science, UCL, in the grounds of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and the site of the Aspire National Training Centre. This initial ten year partnership will invest £3.6m in the advancement of the very best academic research for the benefit of the spinal cord injured population and other disabled people.
Full details of the posts can be found here on the UCL website.
