Opening For Clinical Research Fellow : London

 We are seeking a Clinical Research Associate/Fellow to participate in a programme that is funded by the Wellcome Trust and the EPSRC to develop computer guided imaging systems for improved prenatal screening and diagnosis of fetal abnormalities. This post will focus on translational research enabling the candidate to have access to clinical duties within congenital heart disease MRI.
The aim of the project is to achieve much higher detection rates of fetal anomalies by combining imaging data from both MRI and US augmented by computer guidance and computer assisted diagnosis to create a next generation screening capability. Central to this aim is developing MRI to be effective at comprehensively imaging the fetus.
The post holder will have the opportunity to gain extensive experience in congenital MRI with a particular focus on fetal MRI. The Division of Imaging Sciences & Biomedical Engineering has extensive resources for bringing basic science developments into clinical practice. The post would suit candidates who wish to do a higher degree in this area and have a background in paediatrics or fetal medicine and a particular interest in congenital heart disease.
The post holder will have an MBBS or equivalent as well as an MRCPCH/MRCP/MRCOG or equivalent. We anticipate that you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills with the ability to facilitate collaborative working relationships within a multi-disciplinary environment.
The post holder will require excellent organisational and time management skills to prioritise their own workload independently without close supervision.
The post-holder will be expected to have clinical expertise in paediatrics or obstetrics and be interested in pursuing a PhD relevant to the research topics being delivered by the grant. The post holder will be involved in ensuring that any research undertaken within the department safeguards the wellbeing of the patients and is conducted according to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trial) Regulations 2004 and Amended Regulations 2006.
