We invite applications for a Post-Doctoral Researcher in neuroscience in the Department of Clinical Science and Services. This is an exciting new position within the Department and will appeal to veterinary surgeons with a PhD qualification and experience in animal models of neurological conditions. The work will consist in carrying out research as part of Dr Granger’s team in the BSU and Prof Richard Piercy’s Laboratory (Comparative Neuromuscular Disease Laboratory) on an EPSRC-funded grant 'Detecting bladder volume and pressure from sacral nerve signals: the key to future artificial control'.

The research will involve neurosurgical work and applying urodynamic and cutting edge electrophysiological methods to study urinary incontinence in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Bath (Prof. John Taylor, Dr Ben Metcalfe from the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering) and the University College London (Prof. Nick Donaldson, Department of Medical Physics & Bioengineering). The role will also involve study of peripheral nerve anatomy and histopathology in a world renowned neuromuscular laboratory led by Prof. Richard Piercy, RVC.

We aim to develop the next generation of electrode for live sensory recording of bladder function in order to control incontinence in humans, in particular after spinal cord injury. You will play an important role in the delivery of this exciting research.

The work will include surgeries at the BSU Hawkshead Campus and laboratory work in the Camden and Hawkshead Campuses.
We are looking for candidates with a PhD qualification, preferably in the field of neurosciences, MRCVS status, and holding a personal licence for work with animals.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Nicolas Granger by email:
