Clinical Research Fellow

University of Glasgow - School of Medicine, Dentistry & Nursing

Job Purpose
The Clinical Research Fellow will undertake agreed research and educational activities to develop new techniques to improve patient care. The Academic Unit of Anaesthesia, Pain and Critical Care exists to promote the education of undergraduate and postgraduate students in anaesthesia, intensive care and pain management, and to lead the development of new techniques to improve patient care in these areas. Clinical Duties will be undertaken under an honorary contract with the relevant NHS Organisation at an appropriate trainee level. 

Standard Terms & Conditions
The salary will be on the Clinical Research Fellow £33,131 - £58,598 per annum. The post carries an additional entitlement depending on "on call" responsibilities. This is paid under a separate arrangement with the NHS for which the University acts as paymaster only.

If you are currently in a Type 1 training post you must hold a National/Visiting Training number and have the agreement of your Postgraduate Dean to retain your original training number and to return to this post at the end of the appointment.

Depending on the research project undertaken most research fellows have documented what they have done over the year and can write to RCA and the postgraduate Dean to see if part of this time MAY be contributed towards training and it is up to RCA/postgraduate Dean to decide this.

This post does not supply an NTN number.

This post is available for 12 months but may be extended to 24 months by mutual agreement.

In the event that the appointee successfully registers to do a higher degree the University will not pay the fees. The work may be carried out during or outside normal working time and no further support will be provided when the contract ends after one year.

The successful applicant (if aged under 60) will be eligible to join the Universities’ Superannuation Scheme. Further information regarding the scheme is available from the Superannuation Officer, who is also prepared to advise on questions relating to the transfer of Superannuation benefits.

All research and related activities, including grants, donations, clinical trials, contract research, consultancy and commercialisation are required to be managed through the University’s relevant processes (e.g. contractual and financial), in accordance with the University Court’s policies.

Disclosure Scotland
The post for which you are applying is considered to be a child care position in terms of The Protection of Children (Scotland) Act 2003. It requires the successful applicant to undergo a satisfactory Disclosure check through Disclosure Scotland prior to appointment. This check is necessary to ensure that the University of Glasgow fulfils its legal duties under the Act.

If you are successful in your application, the offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory Disclosure Report. The University will make a Disclosure application to Disclosure Scotland, which will reveal any past criminal convictions (spent or unspent) or inclusion on the Disqualified from Working with Children List. Any non-conviction information held locally by the police may also be disclosed should this be considered relevant to the position.

Please note it is a criminal offence to apply for a child care position if you are on the Disqualified from Working with Children List.
