Vacancy: Edinburgh UK DRI centre Programme Leader - Fellow and Professor positions

Programme Leader positions for Fellow and Professor at Edinburgh UK DRI centre

The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) is a £250 million initiative dedicated to addressing the challenge of defeating dementia. The institute consists of 6 centres across the UK; its presence in Scotland is the UK DRI at The University of Edinburgh.

Programme leaders are now being sought who will help transform the range and pace of research on dementias. Applications are invited to direct (for a professor) or lead (for a fellow) an internationally competitive research programme relevant to the area of neurodegeneration, with the ultimate aim of improving human health. Programme leaders will draw on the knowledge and expertise of other colleagues both within and outside of the UK DRI through collaborative inputs and team working. At the Edinburgh UK DRI centre, foundation programmes include neuroimaging research led by Prof Joanna Wardlaw investigating small vessel diseases and vascular contributions to neurodegeneration and dementia.

To be successful, candidates should have a proven track record of internationally competitive scientific research and persuasive plans for a new and exciting UK DRI core programme. In return, the institute offers a five-year research programme package of up to £3 million for a professor and up to £1.5 million for a fellow.

Fellow appointments will be on the Grade 8 (£39,324 - £46,924) or Grade 9 (£49,772 - £55,998) academic scale dependent on experience. Further information: https://www.vacancies.ed.ac.uk/pls/corehrrecruit/erq_jobspec_version_4.jobspec?p_id=040257

Informal enquires are encouraged in the first instance and should be directed to Prof Giles Hardingham, UK DRI associate director, Giles.H@ed.ac.uk

Closing date: 26 January 2017, but note: applications are encouraged well in advance of the formal closing date and will be considered on a rolling basis
