Project: Novel knock-in mouse models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia

Description: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) are two devastating mid-life neurodegenerative disorders for which no cure is currently available. Very large expansions of an intronic hexanucleotide GGGGCC-repeat in the first intron of the C9orf72 gene is the most common genetic cause of both ALS and FTD.

We have made several advances in understanding the underlying disease mechanisms (Mizielinska et al Science 2014, 345:1192-1194; Mizielinska et al Acta Neuropath 2013, 126(6):845-57; Fratta et al Sci Rep 2012, 2:1016).

Required / Qualifications:

The post is available immediately, and is funded for three years in the first instance by a grant from the Motor Neuron Disease Association. Starting salary on UCL Grade 7 in the range £33,686 – £36,522 per annum inclusive, superannuable.
