Summary:

We are seeking a highly motivated scientist to carry out research projects in Translational Cerebrovascular Disease. We are exploring innovative cerebroprotection strategies with the central purpose of developing novel clinical therapies for devastating vascular diseases of the brain. You will have an excellent research and publication track record and will contribute to the work of an internationally recognised research group. You must possess excellent organisation skills and the ability to interact well within a group.
