Research Assistant in Translational Systems Neuroscience Uk Dementia Research Institute

A new postdoctoral fellowship position in pathology is available at Imperial College London. This fellowship is last for two years and posible to extend. The deadline to apply is February 13, 2019.

The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) at Imperial has been established to address a medical research area of highest importance and future impact, as one of six new national centres of excellence embedded in major UK universities that together, are intended to transform the diagnosis, treatment and care of people with dementias. MRC and charity partners Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer's Research UK have invested 290m in fulfilment of the ambition identified in the Prime Minister’s 2020 Challenge on Dementia.

The UK DRI Centre at Imperial is seeking an outstanding researcher interested in taking on a challenging role with considerable scope for scientific achievement and personal growth. The post-holder will be a member of the research staff in the foundation programme of Dr Nir Grossman.

The foundation programme of Dr Grossman is focused on the development of non-invasive brain stimulation tools and strategies to impact the disease pathology via direct modulation of the underlying network activity. A growing body of evidence suggests that aberrant network activity plays a critical role in the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, not just by disrupting the spatiotemporal framework that underpins cognitive or motoric functionality, but also by dysregulating activity of processes in both glia and neurons. The overarching goal of this post is to develop a non-invasive brain stimulation intervention for neurodegenerative diseases by exploiting tools and principles that have been developed in the Centre.

The aim of the post is to help with data analysis of ongoing non-invasive electrical brain stimulation experiments in humans.

The contract is fixed term for one year in the first instance.
