Fixed Term 2 Years


The Critical Care Department at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust has an exciting and unique opportunity for a Clinical Research Fellow in Critical Care to undertake research in critical illness recovery and survivorship.

The Trust is a regional and supra-regional referral centre and provides a full range of medical and surgical subspecialties. The GSTT Critical Care Department has an international reputation for clinical excellence and an expanding programme of research including: cardio-respiratory physiology, kidney injury, post-sepsis immunobiology, physical and neuropsychological sequelae of critical illness, and patient/caregiver experience.

The postholder will primarily be responsible for the initiation, implementation and execution of an innovative clinical trial to evaluate and enhance resumption of driving following critical illness. This novel project is embedded within a successful intensivist-led multidisciplinary Critical Care Recovery service which sees in excess of 250 new patients per year. Opportunities to develop laboratory, statistics and epidemiology expertise, deliver the portfolio of multicenter and GSTT-sponsored studies and take an active role across the critical care research workstreams will be available.

 The post would be ideal for a clinician (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing, medical ST1+/ST3+ level, or Band 7 afc) looking to explore academic research opportunities and/or considering applying for a higher degree in the field of critical care. Where relevant support in applying for an OOPR from Health Education England will be provided.

This post is funded at 20 hours p/w, for a two year fixed term.
