Fixed-term contract up to October 2024
An exciting new position for a Grade 7 Research Fellow is now open for applications within the Neuroscience, Neurotrauma and Ophthalmology Group within the Institute of Inflammation and Ageing working on a translational project investigating the pathobiology of stroke in young people. Subarachnoid haemorrhage is a devastating form of stroke associated with long term disability because of secondary brain damage. Around a quarter of adult patients are under the age of 45 and are at increased risk of developing neurodegenerative disease including dementia.
Within this post, we will aim to explore the mechanisms behind premature ageing of the brain following a haemorrhagic stroke. Using state of the art culture systems and in vivo models, we will investigate the roles of fluid dynamics and aberrations within extracellular matrix dysfunctions that lead to neurodegeneration.
This translational research will build into larger portfolio of neurodegenerative disease research. Working under PI, Assistant Professor Botfield, you will be part of a large multidisciplinary team of translational and clinical scientists.
