We are looking for a part-time (two days a week) Memory Clinic Physician and Clinical Research Fellow.

RICE is an independent registered charity and an internationally renowned centre for dementia research, diagnosis and treatment. Our research aims to find drug and non-drug treatments for people with dementia and other diseases predominantly affecting older people as well as providing support to them and their families and carers. In 2015 we embarked on an ambitious new phase of development that includes plans to increase significantly our clinical and academic research programme.
