The School of Clinical Sciences has a vacancy for a Research Associate working as part of the Dementia Research Group at Southmead Hospital.

You will work as an independent researcher to optimise, apply and supervise the implementation of biochemical methods to measure Aβ peptides, blood-brain barrier leakage, pericyte (platelet-derived growth factor β receptor) and endothelial (von Willebrand factor) content, and myelin proteins, in samples of human post-mortem brain tissue.

This post will support a 2-year project funded by Alzheimer's Research UK, during which techniques developed within the Dementia Research Group in Bristol will be used to characterise tissue from several Edinburgh post-mortem brain cohorts with cerebrovascular disease.

For further information, please refer to the job description and/or contact Professor Seth Love for an informal discussion by email at
