Vacancy: Research Assistant position in clinical studies of cerebral small vessel disease at Edinburgh

Research Assistant position at University of Edinburgh in clinical studies of cerebral small vessel disease

A research assistant is required to assist in clinical studies of Small Vessel Diseases (SVD) including volunteers and patients with minor stroke and cognitive symptoms. The aim of the studies is to understand mechanisms, predict prognosis, identify treatments and improve outcomes for SVDs and thereby stroke and dementia. The post-holder will collect clinical, cognitive brain imaging and physiological data from participants in ongoing longitudinal studies of mechanisms and risk factors for small vessel diseases. They will ensure that data are up to date, accurate and complete.

The studies are funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), the Fondation Leducq, the Stroke Association, British Heart Foundation, Alzheimer’s Society and EU Horizon 2020 programmes and take place in the Brain Research Imaging Centres and UK Dementia Research Institute Centre at the University of Edinburgh.. The post-holder will play an active part in the general activities of the Small Vessel Diseases research group and have knowledge of clinical studies including recruitment, data collection, checking and management.

The post would suit a psychologist, neuroscientist, medical scientist or researcher from a similar relevant discipline who is interested in working in clinical research, particularly in small vessel diseases, stroke and dementia.
