London Trauma System Critical Care Research Nurse (or Allied Health Professional)

Queen Mary University of London - Blizard Institute - Centre for Neuroscience and Trauma

2 posts, full-time, 2 years.

Applications are invited for two Research Nurse (or Allied Health Professional) posts to work with the pan-London Major Trauma System, which comprises four geographical networks that provide care for approximately 10 million people across the entire Greater London area (

The posts are within the Centre for Neuroscience and Trauma in the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University of London. The Blizard Institute is the largest institute of Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry and aims to deliver excellence in all aspects of research, teaching and clinical service.

One of the Centre’s key research themes focuses on multiple organ dysfunction (MODS) after trauma, which is associated with significant morbidity, prolonged critical care stays and increased mortality. MODS appears to be a particular burden for older injured people, who are the fastest growing group of trauma patients in the UK. We are seeking to recruit two self-motivated and enthusiastic Research Nurses (or AHPs) to conduct the clinical research aspects of a pan-London MODS study called MODET.

The posts will involve working with clinical and research teams in the four Major Trauma Centre critical care units to enrol participants and collect accurate clinical research data. The post holders will be responsible for completion and management of CRFs, working with local research teams to collect and enter data. The post holders will also conduct long term follow-up of patients twelve months after their injuries to investigate longer term recovery after major trauma.

Applicants must have intensive care, critical care, high dependency, emergency or acute care experience and skills.

There are two posts, both full-time for two years in the first instance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Interviews are expected to be held shortly after the closing date above.
