4 Year Postdoc - Dementia - The University of Sheffield

We have an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral research associate to join the lab of Dr Ryan West at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN) working on the project “Mechanisms Underpinning Disease Heterogeneity in C9Orf72 Frontotemporal Dementia”. This Alzheimer’s Society funded interdisciplinary project will combine the study of novel Drosophila models, patient-derived cell models and patient tissues to explore mechanisms underpinning disease heterogeneity in Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) and Motor Neuron Disease (MND) associated with C9Orf72 hexanucleotide expansion mutation.

Candidates are strongly advised to contact Ryan (r.j.west@sheffield.ac.uk) to discuss the role, prior to applying.
