Clinical Research Officer

Postgraduate Medical Institute

Playing a key role in the Hull York Medical School (HYMS) Centre for Cardiovascular & Metabolic Research (CCMR), this is your opportunity to take part in an original research project within Vascular Surgery. You will also provide resident medical cover to the Spire Elland Hospital.

The CCMR is home to a number of highly successful researchers in clinical and lab based areas. We are also part of a university that is investing more than £15 million in the world’s finest academic staff.

For the research side of the role, you will be based in the Academic Vascular Surgical Unit of Hull Royal Infirmary, which has an international track record in venous, arterial and wound research supported by NIHR funding. It is a chance to pursue your academic and surgical interests, and you will be expected to obtain an MD/PhD supported by HYMS.

The other side of the role is to provide on-site medical support at the Spire Hospital. Typically working a 1:4 rota to support patients, consultants and nursing staff, you will be resident at the hospital for the duration of your duty hours. This involves dealing with emergency procedures, as well as more general patient care. You will have the hands-on experience (equivalent to a 2nd year senior house officer) to provide compassionate care for patients, alongside full GMC registration. You are also expected to have an appropriate medical qualification as well as MRCS or MRCOG Part 2 or MRCP Part 2. It is also desirable that you have recently acquired ALS and PALS.

This post is for one year on the Clinical Academic Salary Scale: £30,992 per annum.

The post requires the employee to undertake enhanced disclosure checks by the Criminal Records Bureau.
