We are looking for a Clinical Researcher to join one of the leading stroke research groups in the UK and internationally. The researcher will work on research programmes investigating the pathogenesis and treatment of cerebral small vessel disease (which accounts for 20% of all strokes and is a major cause of vascular dementia).

There is an exceptional research environment within Clinical Neurosciences at Cambridge as well as excellent opportunities to receive additional training in both Clinical Neurology and Stroke.
