Senior Appointments in Dementia Research, Fellow of the UK Dementia Research Institute

The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) is a joint £250 million investment into dementia research led by the Medical Research Council (MRC) alongside founding charity partners the Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK.

While we welcome applications from outstanding scientists without previous experience specifically in neurodegeneration research who wish to shift to a focus on dementia, we are particularly interested to consider applications from those experienced in the area who have been working with in vitro or animal models of aspects of the biology of the dementias. There will be special opportunities for research that would have strong synergies with existing Imperial College UK DRI programmes addressing neuronal homeostatic mechanisms, neuronal-glial interactions and their modulation by the microbiome and circadian mechanisms. However, we also are committed to employing people who will add to diversity amongst our staff and approaches. Successful appointees will be expected to enhance the reputation of the Department in the field of dementia research through the development of research programmes, contributing to effective teaching and training, and supporting the good governance of the Division.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual with the ability to develop their original ideas, lead a research group and work to be among the best in the field. Suitably qualified candidates will be considered for generous, long-term research support awards within the UK Dementia Research Institute as UK DRI Fellows.

Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Paul Matthews including a statement of research experience, curriculum vitae and bibliography.
