WMG have an exciting opportunity for a Research Fellow to join them to undertake an NIHR Clinical Research Network (West Midlands) funded project, with the aim of conducting a study to investigate how clinical research can be best delivered digitally.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, a large proportion of clinical research and the associated administration has rapidly been transferred from traditional ‘paper-based’ methods, to digital and online formats. This study will investigate what has worked well and what hasn’t in terms of digitally delivered clinical research. The aim is to produce best-practice guidance that ensures future clinical research studies can fully adopt the advancements made in digital management methods whilst avoiding the potential pitfalls.
We are looking for someone with a PhD in a relevant area, along with experience in engaging and working with stakeholders involved in clinical research.
In return we will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Silver Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure (£30,046). Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of the level 6 of the University grade structure (£30,942).
Full details of the duties and selection criteria for this role can be found in the vacancy advert on the University of Warwick's jobs pages. You will be routed to this when you click on the Apply button.
