The University of Nottingham seeks applications for an Orthopaedic Clinical Research Fellow. This exciting project, funded by the Department of Health (DoH), will advance the clinical development of a new degradable composite bone fracture fixation plate. The successful applicant will be based within the Division of Orthopaedic and Accident Surgery, Queens Medical Centre (QMC). They will be required to work both independently and as part of a multi-disciplinary professional team including clinicians, engineers and basic scientists. The successful candidate may be at any stage in their orthopaedic postgraduate training but would be most suited to those approaching, or undertaking higher specialist training (ST2-5). They will be expected to register for a higher degree with the University of Nottingham. The clinical and engineering team developing the degradable prototype composite bone plate have extensive knowledge and expertise in this field. Research within the Orthopaedic Group focuses on various aspects of the biology of fracture healing (bone callus), osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, arthritis, injury and repair. The School of Clinical Sciences hosts many leading research groups with strengths in clinical trials and experimental research. There is a regular academic seminar programme that is updated weekly and the person appointed will be encouraged to attend those suitable to their post.
Candidates should have MRCS qualification, including experience of orthopaedic surgical techniques (and preferably experience in histological analysis). Holding a Home Office Personal Licence at time of appointment would be extremely advantageous.
It is a condition of this post that satisfactory enhanced disclosure is obtained from the Criminal Records Bureau.
