Clinical Research Fellow

University College London - Ear Institute

We have an exciting opportunity for a medical doctor to play a key role in a ground breaking first in human trial of a novel therapy to treat hearing loss.

The REGAIN project (REgeneration of inner hair cells with GAmma secretase INhibitors) is funded by the prestigious EU Horizon 2020 programme and aims to deliver a phase I/II study to test the safety and efficacy of a gamma secretase inhibitor in adults with mild to moderate sensorineural hearing loss. This innovative project is led by Prof Anne Schilder and Prof Shakeel Saeed, and will be conducted at the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital, in collaboration with the UCL Ear Institute and partner sites across Europe.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated medical doctor to provide essential clinical support to the trial. She/he will be a key figure in the delivery of the trial, in collaboration with the research nurse and audiologists as part of the REGAIN team.

In parallel to trial delivery, the postholder will have the opportunity to contribute to hearing research related to the trial, tailored to background and expertise. The postholder will therefore have a keen interest in translational research.

The post is funded for 12 months in the first instance.

The successful applicant will have a medical degree, post-registration experience, Advanced Life Support training and a genuine interest and commitment to developing a career in ENT.

She/he will be flexible, pro-active and able to provide a high level of consideration and care to trial participants.
