Professor James Rowe is looking for an enthusiastic Post-doctoral Research Associate, to join the Dementia's Platform UK II team (DPUK II) at the Cambridge University Department of Clinical Neurosciences. DPUK II is a 5-year innovative industry-academia partnership to accelerate the development of treatments for dementia. The role provides a unique opportunity to work on a UK wide Experimental Medicine platform in a consortium of leading industry and academic partners.
As a Post-Doctoral Research Associate, you will lead the implementation of the Synaptic Health work package. This includes a longitudinal MEG/EEG study of early Alzheimer's disease, linked to novel PET tracers of synaptic density and CSF biomarkers. Experience in research studies of dementia or mental health disorders would be advantageous, but is not essential.
Your ability to generate and test hypotheses through well-organized multi-site imaging will be key. You will lead key areas of analysis of multivariate data using advanced platforms, including network models and machine-learning methods across DPUK's data portal. You will work within a balanced team of professionals consisting of post-doctoral scientists, clinical fellows, research governance managers and students as well as taking an active part in the dissemination of research findings.
For this post, you will have a BSc and PhD in neuroscience, physiology, psychology, computational neuroscience or related discipline. You will have substantial experience in M/EEG, and be able to analyze physiological differences in relation to PET, cognition and biomarkers.
For more information on the role, contact Professor James Rowe (firstname.lastname@example.org). The role will primarily be based at the Herchel Smith Building for Brain and Mind Sciences, Cambridge Biomedical Campus, CB2 0SZ.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 December 2025 in the first instance.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. This appointment also requires a Research Passport application.
