A PhD position uncovering the molecular mechanisms involved in Alzheimer’s disease is available with Prof Frank Gunn-Moore, University of St Andrews http://synergy.st-andrews.ac.uk/research/person/fjg1/. The applicant will join a vibrant group of researchers who are utilising biology, chemistry and physics approaches to understanding molecular neurobiology. For this PhD position, a student with a 2:1 or better degree is required from a UK/EU country.
The project, starting in Sept 2016, will be looking at the involvement of metabolism, utilising biochemical and cell biological approaches, to understand for example a new model for Alzheimer’s disease highlighted in the Alzforum top ten highlights from 2014, from our collaborator Prof B. Platt (http://www.alzforum.org/news/research-news/year-research-top-10-trends-2014).
This is one of the positions for the recently awarded Scottish Alzheimer’s Society Doctoral Training Centre, as such the applicant will be part of a multi-centre approach to tackling this disease. For more information please contact [email protected]
