PORTSMOUTH HOSPITALS NHS TRUST
HEPATOLOGY RESEARCH FELLOW £35,000 – £40,000 per annum Fixed Term
Due to recent expansion in research activity, we have a vacancy for a Research Fellow on a fixed term contract of 12 months based in the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Queen Alexandra Hospital, 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 as well as investigator-led studies.
The role of the Clinical Research Fellow is to primarily enhance the delivery of clinical research within the Hepatology service. The post- holder 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 in patients with liver disease. Depending on the interests of the candidate, there may be opportunities for additional clinical experience in liver disease alongside research work.
In addition, the CRF will be expected to establish and undertake personal clinical (or translational) research in an agreed area that complements the overall research strategy of the department. It is anticipated that he/she will work towards gaining sufficient research data and experience that will enable submission to a grant funding body to facilitate a higher degree (PhD or MD).
We are looking for someone ideally with experience in research but it is not essential as training will be given according to the postholder’s needs. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are required, as is an ability to work independently and flexibly. The successful applicant will need to be enthusiastic and ready to work actively to support recruiting patients in line with NIHR targets. The postholder will work in accordance with the Department of Health’s Research Governance Framework (DH 2001), the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations (SI 1031/2004 and later amendments) and other relevant regulations and guidelines. Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training will be given to the successful candidate.
