Clinical Research Associate (Fixed Term)

University of Cambridge - Division of Neurology

We are looking for a Clinical Research Associate to join one of the leading Stroke Research groups in the UK and Internationally. The fellow will work on an MRC funded programme investigating how cerebral small vessel disease (which accounts for 20% of all strokes and is the major cause of vascular dementia) progresses, and whether we can intervene to slow this progression. The programme is applying a new MRI technique to identify increased blood brain barrier permeability, and PET techniques to identify neuroinflammation.

The fellow will play a key role in helping recruit patients, perform imaging, and analyse imaging results. There is an exceptional research environment within Clinical Neurosciences at Cambridge, as well as excellent opportunities to receive additional training in both clinical neurology and stroke.

The successful applicant requires a medical qualification MRCP or equivalent.

The project would be suitable either for a doctor already on a subspecialist training scheme in neurology and or stroke medicine or similar speciality, or for a doctor planning to enter subspecialty training in neurology/DME or stroke medicine.
