Novo Nordisk Clinical Research Training Fellow in Diabetes and Metabolism

University of Oxford - Radcliffe Department of Medicine

(2 posts)

Novo Nordisk is funding a prestigious fellowship programme at the University of Oxford for both basic science and clinical researchers, focused on diabetes research. We are looking to recruit two outstanding Clinical Research Training Fellows who can utilise the support offered by this programme to become future leaders in the field, developing scientific excellence within diabetes and ultimately improving patients’ lives.

In Oxford, world-class diabetes research is conducted across the spectrum of population, clinical and basic science. Depending on the project selected, you will be based in: 1. Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism; 2. Division of Cardiovascular Medicine; 3 Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics; 4. Big Data Institute; 5. Nuffield Department of Medicine; or 6. Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences.

You will conduct the research project selected, and produce novel scientific data and a thesis of suitable quality to obtain a DPhil (PhD).

You should have prior research experience (typically a BSc), a medical degree and some specialist experience, typically having obtained MRCP or equivalent, but not CCT or consultant status. You will also have a strong CV, having published in international journals. You will be committed to a career in diabetes or metabolic medicine, clinical practice and research and have evidence of excellent interpersonal skills and leadership.

Please note that while we will consider all applications, the funding provided for the Clinical Research Training Fellowship will only cover home/EU DPhil fees.

The start date for successful candidates is ideally in Autumn 2018 – however a start date earlier than autumn and as late as January or February 2019 may also be possible. 

Further information is detailed in the job description.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 23 March 2018.
