The Busche lab (buschelab.com), at the UK Dementia Research Institute at UCL, is looking for a highly self-motivated individual to combine in vivo electrophysiology and imaging with behavioural studies in models of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. The planned research projects are targeted to elucidate the cellular mechanisms that underlie memory and other cognitive impairments in these disorders. The post holder will perform in vivo electrophysiology and/or multiphoton imaging in behaving mice, process and analyse the electrophysiological and imaging datasets; evaluate and communicate results, publish results in peer reviewed journals and present findings at scientific conferences.

About University College London, UK Dementia Research Institute
Dementias is one of the most challenging medical problems facing society—the UK Dementia Research Institute is taking up the challenge. Drawing world-leaders in dementia research into a single national institute, we intend to create a new sort of research institute: one that is committed to the highest quality research, is profoundly collaborative, and is destined to become the most exciting and productive place in the world to undertake dementia research.
By improving our understanding of the fundamental molecular and cellular underpinnings of dementia we will usher in an era of improved diagnosis, treatment, care and prevention relevant to all forms of dementia.
The headquarters of the DRI is at University College London, with additional research centres at the University of Cambridge, Cardiff University, Edinburgh University, Imperial College London and King’s College London. The UK DRI is a joint £250 million investment from the Medical Research Council, Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK.
