The MS Society Cambridge Centre for Myelin Repair offers a Research Associate position to motivated individuals to undertake research at the University of Cambridge.

The University of Cambridge is exceptional in the depth and diversity of its research in myelin biology and multiple sclerosis (MS), and has a dynamic and interactive research community that is ranked amongst the foremost in the world. By bringing together members of both the Schools of Biology and Medicine, this position will enable you to take advantage and enhance the strength and breadth of MS and myelin biology research available in Cambridge.

We are looking for a motivated and independent research associate to join a MS funded research project to answer the MS Society’s top research question: “which treatments are effective to slow, stop or reverse the accumulation of disability associated with MS?”. The role would investigate fundamental mechanisms of remyelination and study how myelin is normally repaired in animals and people with MS and then identify ways of targeting this therapeutically.

Requirements: We are looking for candidates, with a PhD level qualification who have experience in cell and molecular biology and with animal models. Candidates with experience in neuroscience are particularly encouraged to apply.

We are specifically looking for candidates who are collaborative with effective communication skills and enjoy working in a team.
