The Transport Safety Research Centre at Loughborough University is seeking to appoint a Research Assistant to work on two projects in the area of fatigue and sleepiness.

This position is to assist the TSRC team by working on two projects in the area of Fatigue and Sleepiness. The first project, has been commissioned to undertake investigations into worker experience of fatigue and sleepiness in maritime industry. The second project is funded by a Road Safety Trust grant to investigate the potential benefits of a planned nap (short sleep) for reducing the negative impact of fatigue/sleepiness on driving.

These three projects will both apply a mixed methods approach using qualitative and quantitative techniques such as desk based reviews, survey, interviews and objective data collection from specifically recruited participants. There are overlapping themes concerning research in the area of human factors in fatigue, sleepiness. Workload will be divided between the projects over the period.
