Senior Research Nurse

University of Oxford - Oxford Vaccine Group, Department of Paediatrics

Research nurses play a key role in the management and delivery of clinical research. The Oxford Vaccine Group is looking for an experienced research nurse to join the paediatric clinical trials team. The Senior Research Nurse provides management, leadership and support, contributes to study design and feasibility and is responsible for ensuring staff are trained appropriately to deliver good quality research.

The paediatric studies take place in participant’s homes across the Thames Valley and nearby counties, therefore access to own transport is essential.

OVG conducts world-leading research into creating new and optimising existing vaccines for children and adults. Our research has recently led to the much-anticipated introduction of the Meningitis B vaccine for babies into the UK vaccination schedule, but also focuses on global health. Currently there is much research into prevention of RSV.

Benefits: 30 days annual leave (not including bank holidays); retain NHS pension; supportive and encouraging team, access to a range of training and professional development courses; no shift work, flexible hours- depending on the requirements of the study.

The role is initially 12 months, fixed-term contract, extension likely but it is subject to availability of external funding.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 9 October 2017.

Please note that the University of Oxford's retirement policy is changing. With effect from October 1 2017, all employees at Grade 8 and above will have a retirement age of 68, and all employees at Grades 6 and 7 will no longer have a set retirement age. Further details are available at:
