CLINICAL RESEARCH FELLOW IN CLINICAL ONCOLOGY

£46,208 p.a excl. LZ

Nodal Point 4

Full Time Fixed Term 2 years (negotiable) 

Guy’s & St Thomas’ Trust is part of King’s Health Partners (KHP) which is one of only six Academic Health Science Centres in the UK accredited by the Department of Health, with a vision to achieve excellence in clinical care, research & teaching.

We are seeking a highly-motivated individual with an interest in clinical research on cutting-edge imaging and radiotherapy technology to appoint to a research post linked to the programme of Professor Sally Barrington, National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Professor. Prof Barrington’s research is focused on the use of PET-guided therapy to improve the effectiveness of cancer treatment with fewer side-effects. The proposed research will build on collaborative work previously undertaken with Dr Teresa GuerreroUrbano in patients with head and neck cancer.

Duties will mainly comprise academic work. The focus of the Clinical Oncology Research Fellow will be to develop new image-guided radiotherapy treatments and to assist with translation into clinical practice, with particular emphasis on PET-CT, MR and PET-MR. It is expected that the post-holder will complete a higher degree, either PhD or MD. The post-holder will also assist other members of the research team with recruitment of patients, project work and analysis as required. The post-holder will report to Professor Barrington and Dr Teresa GuerreroUrbano (Clinical Lead).

Clinical work in support of the post holder’s academic responsibilities will be undertaken, which will include attendance at some multidisciplinary meetings and participation in selected oncology clinics involving recruitment of patients to research projects.
