University of Cambridge offers Postdoctoral Research Associate Position in the Department of Pharmacology, UK
Study Subject(s):Vivo imaging to investigate brain and tissue function (particularly heart) in mouse and sheep models of Huntington’s disease
Scholarship Provider: University of Cambridge , UK
Scholarship can be taken at: UK
Applicants should have either a PhD in physics (preferably in MRI or NMR), or a PhD in a relevant biological field. Experience of magnetic resonance imaging or PET scanning, while not essential, would be highly desirable. However, training will be given where appropriate.
Scholarship Open for International Students: No
Scholarship Description: Applications are invited for a Research Associate to work on a project using in vivo imaging to investigate brain and tissue function (particularly heart) in mouse and sheep models of Huntington’s disease. This project is conducted in collaboration with the Laboratory for Molecular Imaging at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre, Addenbrooke’s Hospital. The project will involve the use of MR and PET scanners and subsequent image analysis to investigate changes in brain and other organ structure and morphology in both transgenic and neurochemical animal models of Huntington’s disease. The imaging will be conducted primarily in the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre. You must be a careful and methodical worker, self-motivated and able to conduct experiments and analyse data independently. Careful observation and accurate record keeping are essential. The post will require some weekend work and a flexible approach to working hours.
