Clinical Fellowship - Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Fellowship in Regenerative Neurology anchored at the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic, Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences (CCBS), University of Edinburgh. The successful applicant will gain comprehensive clinical and research training whilst participating in a diverse range of specialist clinics and clinical trials (including for motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, early onset cognitive disorders, Parkinson’s disease, and Huntington’s disease). For appropriate candidates, there are opportunities for pursuing a higher degree (PhD/MD). This position will suit individuals motivated to pursue higher specialist training in clinical neurosciences, existing trainees from these specialties seeking out of programme experience, and trainees seeking post-CCT sub-specialist experience before applying for consultant positions.
Closing date: 5pm, 08 December 2017

Research Assistant - MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine

We are seeking a research technician to work with Dr Paul Brennan in the laboratory of Professor Steven Pollard at the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh. The project, funded by The Brain Tumour Charity, aims to define the transcriptional and epigenetic rewiring that accompanies malignant transformation of low grade glioma. The positions is available for 1 year. The successful candidate will work on human-derived glioma cell lines to examine the processes involved in malignant transformation. They will derive genome edited derivatives of the cells lines and will require expertise in molecular biology.

Research Associate - Simons Initiative for the Developing Brain

The laboratory of Professor Ian Duguid is seeking highly motivated applicants with experience in neuroscience, neuroengineering or computing science. You will contribute to the development of a programme of research aiming to design, build and implement bespoke solutions for in-cage lifetime monitoring of rodent behaviour. The role will employ computer programming, database curation, 3D modelling, electronics and hardware design and lifetime monitoring of animal behaviour. Applications are welcomed from those who have completed an undergraduate degree in a relevant research area such as computing, engineering, biomedical/biological sciences and have significant relevant experience.

Postdoctoral Research Associate - MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine

We are seeking an independent and motivated postdoctoral research scientist with an interest in stem cells and cancer. The project will focus on moving forward our understanding of the transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms that operate in neural stem cells to control self-renewal and differentiation, and how these pathways operate in the context of human brain tumours. You will have a strong training in molecular genetic approaches to the study of transcriptional and/or chromatin based regulatory mechanisms, and will use this to determine the molecular partners and key effectors of lineage-specific transcription factors in normal and tumour-derived neural stem cells
