Position: Clinical Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Queen Square Institute of Neurology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are looking for a Clinical Research Fellow to join our world-leading group that brings together expertise across the clinical and basic science spectrum of the physiology and pathology of human movement and movement disorders. The development of new treatments for Cortico-Basal Syndrome (CBS) and its prototypic pathological substrate, Cortico-Basal Degeneration (CBD) is confounded by an incomplete understanding of the disease pathogenesis, pathological heterogeneity and the lack of diagnostic, progression and pathogenic biomarkers. This exciting role will involve developing a pan-European CBS network. The study will involve the clinical and genetic study of CBS and PSP, together with relevant biomarkers
Requirements: The successful candidate will be medically qualified and will hold GMC registration and MRCP or equivalent. Experience of working with patients with CBS or similar conditions is essential as is a very high level of consideration and care for participants. Applicants must have an interest in the underlying pathology and pathogenesis of PSP and CBS.
