The NIHR Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre is offering 2 training positions in Translational Neuroscience:

Two Clinical Research Fellowships (full-time for 1 year), one with an immediate start and one with an April 2018 start.

The NIHR Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre is focused on the pull-through of developments in Neurodegeneration, Neuroinflammation and Cerebrovascular disease into early phase clinical trials. Research in these areas is supported by cross-cutting themes of Advanced Medical Imaging, Genomic Medicine and Bioinformatics, and in silico medicine. The Sheffield BRC brings together outstanding scientists from the University of Sheffield Departments of Neuroscience and Engineering in multidisciplinary research institutes SITraN and INSIGNEO to improve the treatment and care of people living with chronic neurological disorders.

Clinical Research projects will take place in conjunction with the Academic Neurology department at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and will be supported by the NIHR Sheffield Clinical Research Facility. Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust recruited over 8000 patients onto Clinical trials in 2016.
