This post-doctoral role is based within the Clinical Health and Rehabilitation Team (CHaRT) in the Department of Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Portsmouth. The Research Group are looking to recruit a Full Time, fixed term post-doctoral Senior Research Associate to join the team and work on a research project funded by Astra Zeneca on the role of SGLT-2 co-transporter inhibitors on metabolite utilisation in people with type 2 diabetes.
