JUNIOR RESEARCH FELLOW Salary: £40,000 per annum
Due to recent expansion in research activity, we have a vacancy for a Junior Research Fellow on a fixed term contract of 12 months based in the Research Department at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.
The postholder will be part of a research team responsible for supporting the day-to-day running of clinical trials from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Portfolio.
The post will also offer the opportunity to develop skills in general medicine and potentially within a specific medical specialty, according to the interests of the successful applicant. There will also be opportunities to provide teaching, take part in clinical audit and potentially to undertake a research project as part of an MRES degree at the University of Portsmouth.
