Research Physician required for

140-bed Clinical Pharmacology Unit

Starting salary: £45–£55k (depending on experience)

HMR is one of the largest phase 1 Clinical Pharmacology units in Europe. We specialise in early studies, particularly first administration to humans, of potential new medicines. We have 140 beds, and laboratories and offices, in purpose-designed premises in north west London. Our staff of 200 includes 7 Physicians.

It is an exciting time to join us. We have just opened a new 40-bed ward, and we need another Research Physician to help us to set up, supervise and report on our studies. Duties include examining study subjects, data interpretation and reporting, and liaising with study sponsors and hospital departments.

Whether you are already an experienced Research Physician or just thinking about giving clinical pharmacology a try, we would love to hear from you.  Our ideal candidate would have MRCP and 4 years’ post-qualification experience, but we would also consider less experienced Physicians with enthusiasm and willingness to learn. We offer support for study leading to the Diploma in Human Pharmacology and Specialty Training in Pharmaceutical Medicine. For suitable candidates, we will give training to become a Principal Investigator.

You must be ALS-registered, hold full GMC registration and a licence to practise, and have at least 3 years’ post-qualification experience.

Closing date: 12th April 2013.

If you would like more information or wish to discuss the post, call or write to Dr Malcolm Boyce. Telephone: 020 8961 4130. Email:
