This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the leading Stroke Research Groups both within the UK and internationally, and make a real difference to patient care. The post-holder will join an ongoing internationally recognised programme investigating the genetic basis of cerebrovascular disease. They will play a key role in the statistical genetics part of the stroke genetics programme. This post is funded by a programme grant form the Stroke Association investigating genetic risk in cerebral small vessel disease and vascular cognitive impairment.

The appointment could be either at senior post-doc level as a Senior Research Associate, or at Research Associate level, according to experience. Senior Research Associate appointments are subject to approval by the Faculty Board of Clinical Medicine.

The ideal candidate would have extensive expertise in genetic statistics. This does not necessarily need to have been applied to stroke but some experience of cardiovascular or neurological, or other relevant diseases, would be an advantage. Most importantly we are looking for an able and interested researcher who will not only support our ongoing programme and support students and other junior researchers, but also develop their own research areas, and take advantage of the unique research opportunities.

We have access to an unrivalled amount of data Cambridge offers including both GWAS in polygenic stroke, and WGS in monogenic stroke, as well as proteomic and metabolomic data.

The post holder will join a friendly Department, which brings together clinical and non-clinical researchers from many disciplines including medicine, nursing, neuropsychology, brain imaging, genetics, biostatistics, epidemiology and clinical trials to research the causes of and treatment of stroke. They will benefit from the exceptional research opportunities and collaboration within the University of Cambridge.
