Postdoctoral  Research position available to work on A Drosophila model of 
tau induced neurodegeneration.

This is a Wellcome Trust funded project. The project is a collaboration 
between Dr. David Shepherd at the University of Southampton and Prof. Simon 
Lovestone at the Institute of Psychiatry in London. The project draws on 
the research expertise found in each lab. David Shepherd has a background 
of research into the mechanisms that control development of the Drosophila 
nervous system. Simon Lovestone is Consultant Psychiatrist with long 
standing research interests in the role of tau in human neurodegenerative 
diseases. The project is also supported by Dr Amrit Mudher, an Alzheimer's 
Disease Society Fellow, who has long-term interests in the role of tau. By 
working together we have been able to develop a powerful and relevant 
Drosophila model of tau induced neurodegenerative diseases. This model has 
the potential to shed light on the cellular and molecular mechanisms that 
underlie tau-induced neurodegeneration. The project has potential to make 
ground breaking discoveries into these important diseases. The appointed 
person will be located at Southampton but will be required to interact 
regularly with co-workers at the Institute including frequent joint meetings.
