Vacancy: Clinical Research Fellow in studies of cerebral SVD at University of Edinburgh

Clinical Research Fellow in studies of cerebral small vessel disease at University of Edinburgh

A clinical research fellow is required for studies of Small Vessel Diseases (SVDs) in stroke and dementia. The post is funded by the Medical Research Council as part of Prof JM Wardlaw’s Foundation Programme in the UK Dementia Research Institute (DRI) at the University of Edinburgh. You will recruit patients to mechanistic studies and clinical trials of cerebral SVDs, and performing a range of assessments with advanced brain MRI, cognitive and clinical methods. This is a 3 year post at AMN2.

This is a unique opportunity for a future clinical academic to work in a world-leading clinical research environment for cerebrovascular diseases and dementia and obtain a PhD while gaining experience in a range of clinical research, neuroimaging and clinical trials methods. The newly formed UK DRI brings together basic, clinical and social science under a single organizational structure to lead research into prevention of all causes of dementia at a global level. We also have exceptional international collaborative networks in stroke and small vessel diseases through Prof Wardlaw’s Fondation Leducq, EU Horizon 2020, Stroke Association and BHF-funded research.

Candidates should demonstrate clear motivation towards research, have a good medical degree, full registration with the GMC, MRCP or equivalent, a clear interest in small vessel diseases in stroke and dementia and want to obtain a PhD. You should have excellent organisational skills, good oral and written communication skills, and be able to work flexibly in a large multi-disciplinary international team.
