Job description

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress, and investing in research to make life-changing breakthroughs possible.

Today, the diseases that cause dementia are diagnosed when symptoms like memory loss start. To have the best chance of halting them, we need to intervene decades earlier, when these diseases first start to take hold.

The charity’s landmark Early Detection of Neurodegenerative Diseases (EDoN) initiative is already bringing together experts in data science, digital technology and neurodegeneration from over 49 universities, institutes, research projects, patient cohorts and technology companies from across UK, Europe and the US.  With funders including Bill Gates, this innovative consortium of partners and collaborators, led by Alzheimer’s Research UK, is collecting and analysing huge amounts of clinical and digital health data (like sleep, gait, heart rate, smartphone interactions etc.) to create machine learning models to identify patterns of early neurodegenerative disease. The ultimate goal is to integrate the measurement of the most useful digital markers into a cost-effective, non-invasive digital toolkit that can be used to detect dementia-causing diseases at a population-wide scale.

As Director of EDoN, your remit will be to drive forward the strategic vision of EDoN, to ensure its success. Working closely with the Hub Leads, funders and other key stakeholders, the Director will provide the leadership to ensure that the many component parts of such a consortium are delivered. Adept at building strong working relationships, the postholder will work closely alongside the Director of External Affairs for EDoN, and the charity’s Director of Research, reporting directly into the Deputy CEO.


  • Lead the EDoN initiative, working with senior stakeholders to define and deliver the strategic vision and its implementation, and representing the initiative to its committees and Boards.
  • Lead the Research Informatics team of eight people dedicated to coordinating EDoN alongside other emerging data informatics projects, with line management of the Head of Research Informatics.
  • As a proactive member of Senior Leadership Team, make a clear and distinct contribution to the strategic and operational aims of the charity, by constructively challenging opinion, identifying solutions and making recommendations.
  • Work closely with the EDoN Hub leads to ensure the EDoN initiative has the right support to implement its strategic programme.
  • Work closely with the EDoN Board to ensure they are kept informed of key developments and in a position to approve annual plans and budgets.
  • Support the Research Informatics team to deliver effective project management, including; planning, budget management, resource and risk management as well as supporting the team to build strong strategic collaborations.


  • A postgraduate degree in technology or biomedical research or equivalent.
  • Lead complex multi-disciplinary projects, programmes, consortia ideally, from a clinical, data or technology background.
  • Knowledge of project management approaches and best practices.
  • Strategic, analytical thinker you will have exemplary leadership skills and have the ability to build relationships and inspire confidence and respect at all levels.
  • Define and deliver scientific/technological strategies and vision.
  • Excellent leadership and coaching skills to support colleagues in the delivery of projects.
  • First class communications to enable the delivery of complex science to a range of stakeholders.
  • Successfully deliver digital health technology and/or big data projects.
  • Confidently build strategic collaborations in a public-private partnership setting.
  • High level stakeholder influencing skills and reporting to Committees and Boards.
