Job Description

Applications are invited for the post of Clinical Research Fellow in Rheumatology. This post is due to commence on 5th August 2020, for a period of 12 months.

The primary duty of the post includes supporting the daily running of clinical research studies / trials on the Rheumatology Research Unit (Level E6), by supporting the principal investigators, five dedicated research nurses and associated administrators. The unit currently runs 22 clinical studies, both commercial and non-commercial ranging from phase IIa to IV. The appointee will report to and be supervised by Dr Deepak Jadon (Director of the Rheumatology Research Unit and consultant rheumatologist) and Dr Natasha Jordan (Associate Director of the Rheumatology Research Unit and consultant rheumatologist).

This post provides an excellent platform to develop experience in the delivery of academic studies and commercial clinical trials, learn to perform musculoskeletal ultrasound, write an academic paper with the supervision of the consultants, and as previous post-holders have done, develop a grant application for a more substantial research project as part of a MD / PhD registration at the University of Cambridge.

The appointee would be an active member of the Department of Rheumatology, participating in departmental educational and management meetings, audit, teaching of medical students and post-graduate presentations. The appointee will undertake two rheumatology outpatient clinics per week. There is potential to contribute to the rheumatology middle-grade on-call at evenings and weekend commitment, but this is optional.

Please note that these posts do not carry Postgraduate Dean's approval or training recognition.

The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC's Good Medical Practice (2013). Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS/OET exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

Full Registration and a Licence to Practice with the General Medical Council at time of commencement is required.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
