Scientific Director and Four Programme Directors
UCLH/UCL NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR HEALTH RESEARCH (NIHR) BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH CENTRE (BRC)
The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre at UCLH/UCL is one of the UK’s leaders in experimental medicine and research. The BRC was recently awarded £100m to drive a cutting edge and internationally-acclaimed experimental medicine portfolio over the next five years.
The UCLH/UCL BRC is one of just five BRCs leading experimental medicine across a wide range of disease areas and is the result of a partnership between a leading NHS Trust, a leading university and the NIHR.
We have an ambitious programme of research aimed at ensuring patients benefit as quickly and as safely as possible from new scientific breakthroughs. Our work focuses in particular on research into new therapies, including novel devices; first in man studies; developing improvements in diagnosis, treatment selection and evaluation of response; and repurposing of therapies.
The BRC has four programmes of work that reflect our particular strengths – cancer, neuroscience, cardiometabolic and infection, immunity and inflammation.
A Scientific Director and four Programme Directors are sought to lead the BRC’s strategy and to deliver on our ambitious agenda for world class experimental medicine.
Closing date: 29 June 2012.
Each of the four Programme Directors will have responsibility for the experimental medicine programmes of their respective areas. Each Programme – cancer, neuroscience, cardiometabolic and infection, immunity and inflammation – benefits greatly from the close partnership between UCLH and UCL. As Programme Director you will deliver strong leadership for the Programme, driving the experimental medicine strategy through chairing the Programme Board and securing widespread engagement and partnership for the Programme’s research activities.
The Programme Directors will have the responsibility for managing a significant proportion of the total BRC budget as well as other grant, charitable and commercial income related to their respective programmes.
Each Programme Director role is available as a four Consultant PA appointment and comes with the dedicated support of a full time Programme Operations Manager, as well as the support of the BRC Chief Operating Officer and Research Support Centre.
Contact Professor Tony Mundy for an informal discussion about any of these key leadership posts on 020 3447 9099.
