This is an exciting opportunity for full-time Clinical Research Fellows to support academic-led clinical research at the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic, Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences.
The post-holders will be part of a multi-disciplinary team and be responsible for the delivery of direct and indirect care and associated data collection for concurrent research studies undertaken in the Clinic, in accordance with the International Conference on Harmonisation Good Clinical Practice Guidelines (ICH-GCP).
This one-year opportunity is open to motivated individuals who are qualified in medicine and have completed Foundation Training, or are engaged in specialty training in any field related to clinical neurosciences.
The post provides considerable opportunities for training including mentorship and exposure to observational and interventional clinical research studies, disease-specific registries, and specialist NHS clinics in cognitive neurology, motor neuron disease (MND), multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and neuropsychiatry. There will be ample opportunity to gain insight and informal training in aspects of novel trial methodology, trial assessment, research governance, ethics applications, clinical epidemiology and specialist diagnostic modalities including neuroimaging.
This post has proven to be a highly effective springboard for higher research degrees and clinical training positions in neuroscience-related specialties. Post-holders will also be offered opportunities to undertake training in a range of transferable skills, including, for example, leadership, management, audit, quality improvement and public engagement. Fellows are expected to lead on personal projects, giving presentations at professional meetings and co-writing scientific publications.
