Duties and Responsibilities

The Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases in the Department of Neuromuscular Diseases is the largest clinical and research centre in the UK for patients with diseases such as peripheral neuropathy. Two new posts are available in the Inherited peripheral nerve group in this centre, led by Professor Mary Reilly. The fellowships provide excellent training prospects to broaden clinical and research skills and generate publications and are suitable for neurology trainees interested in inherited peripheral neuropathies. Post holders will have the opportunity to train in all aspects (including molecular genetics) of the inherited neuropathies.

Post 1 is a 3-year research fellowship suitable for a neurologist in training who wants to undertake a PhD. The project encompasses a natural history study, biomarker development (including MRI) and clinical trials in patients with Charcot Marie Tooth disease (CMT). 

Post 2 is a 3-year research fellowship also suitable for a neurologist in training who wants to undertake a PhD. The project is focussed on identifying novel genetic causes and understanding the pathogenesis of the inherited neuropathies especially CMT.  The post holder will have a unique opportunity of being affiliated with both the NIH funded international Inherited Neuropathy Consortium (INC) and the newly established MRC funded International Centre for Genomic Medicine in Neuromuscular Diseases (ICGNMD) which aims to deliver a deeply-phenotyped “trial-ready” international cohort of NMD patients.  
The research fellowships are for three years in the first instance starting in August 2020 (the start date is flexible for both posts).
