Dementia is the greatest health challenge of our century.



To date there is no way to prevent it or even slow its progression, and there is an urgent need to fill the knowledge gap in our basic understanding of the diseases that cause it.



The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) is the biggest UK initiative driving forward research to fill this gap.



We are a globally leading multidisciplinary research institute of 700 staff investigating the spectrum of neurodegenerative disorders causing dementia, with laboratory-based research groups located at University College London, the University of Cambridge, Cardiff University, Edinburgh University, Imperial College London and King’s College London.



 



Centre context



 



King’s 



Researchers at the UK DRI at King’s use innovative approaches to explore the biological mechanisms involved in neurodegenerative diseases. Their goal is to defeat dementia by uncovering vital new knowledge that will lead to the design of smarter diagnostics and effective treatments. The team aim to understand the fundamental biological processes involved in dementia at a molecular level – and to use that knowledge to design new ways to diagnose and treat disease more precisely.



 



The group of Dr Marc-David Ruepp is seeking an organised and enthusiastic individual for a full-time research assistant position to support their research. This position will involve significant work in molecular cloning, analysis of changes in gene expression by RT-PCR and qPCR, mammalian cell culture, and splicing modulation and thus requires consistency and attention to detail, as well as a willingness for occasional weekend work in the context of cellular work. The post-holder will also provide support for general organisational and technical duties to allow the smooth and efficient running of the lab.



Dr Marc-David Ruepp’s group works on RNA metabolism in health and disease with a specific focus on the two neurodegenerative diseases frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This position will provide valuable research support and contribute to the understanding of ALS/FTD in order to find effective therapeutic strategies.
