The key role of the Research Officer is to support the business of the Research Committee and support Cure Parkinson’s research efforts.
We’re here for the cure. Everything we do is to move us closer to that goal.
Curing Parkinson’s needs world-class collaborative science involving researchers, clinicians, the pharmaceutical industry and, most importantly, people who are living with Parkinson’s. This collaboration is at the heart of our research programme.
Our leadership and funding enables the world’s leading neuroscientists and neurologists to prioritise, together, the next generation of drugs for clinical trial.
The Research Officer will play a pivotal role in Cure Parkinson’s ambitious research projects. Joining us at a busy time and with research and trials gradually picking up pace, we can offer a self-motivated and enthusiastic researcher the opportunity to develop and make their mark as part of this innovative and dynamic charity.
The Research Officer will report to the Research Manager and work closely with the Research Committee and other members of our Research team.
Cure Parkinson’s was set up in 2005 by four people living with Parkinson’s.
In 15 years, the charity they started has made significant progress in the quest for a cure. We have funded millions of pounds of research, made scientific discoveries, and opened new avenues of research. We have made enormous strides in involving people with Parkinson’s in research and given hope to many with the condition. Our innovative approach, which has led to collaborations with the world’s leading researchers and their inspirational work, combined with the active support of thousands of people living with Parkinson’s around the world, is bringing us closer to a cure for Parkinson’s.
