Research area and project description
This Research assistant will be part of a research team working within the field of clinical exercise physiology, where special focus is put on investigations of physical functioning and the effects of exercise therapy in patients with neurological conditions. A particular focus is put on patients with multiple sclerosis, but other conditions such as parkinson’s disease, stroke, myasthenia gravis and diabetic neuropathy are also being investigated.

The research assistant will predominantly be working on two projects:

    Fatigability in persons with multiple sclerosis
    • The aims of this project are:
    • 1. To investigate mechanisms underlying fatigability in people with multiple sclerosis.
    • 2. To compare fatigability in persons with multiple sclerosis to healthy controls, applying different fatigability protocols.
  • Project 2:
    Associations between dietary habits and functional capacity and MRI outcomes in persons with multiple sclerosis.
    • The aim of this project is:
    • 1. To explore associations between specific dietary components (e.g. folate) and functional capacity (e.g. walking capacity) and MRI outcomes (e.g. brain volume) in persons with multiple sclerosis.

Qualifications and specific competences

Optimally, the research assistant is familiar with basic techniques from the field of exercise physiology including dynamometre, electromyography and superimposed twitch interpolation.
