Clinical Research Fellow in Respiratory Medicine (fixed term)
University of Nottingham, Respiratory Medicine
United Kingdom

We are seeking a dynamic, driven individual with a desire to establish a career in understanding Interstitial Lung Disease. This role will allow you to plan and conduct preliminary research to support a feasibility study and potentially to undertake the feasibility study as well. The successful applicant will support Professor Jenkins’ £1.7M NIHR Research Professorship entitled ‘Developing a biomarker guided strategy to treat patients with pulmonary fibrosis’ and complement the £23.6M NIHR award to Nottingham for a Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). You will be based with the Respiratory Theme of the BRC within the Division of Respiratory Medicine. You will interact with members of Professor Jenkins’ clinical research team including an NIHR BRC Academic Fellow, Research Nurses and Research Manager.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Clinical Research Fellow in the Division of Respiratory Medicine to perform translational research studies on Interstitial Lung Diseases with the primary focus of implementing biomarker studies into improved patient care.

The successful applicant will work with Professor Jenkins and join a world-leading Interstitial Lung Diseases team with a strong track record in translating discoveries into benefits for patients. Highlights from Prof Jenkins’ group include a number of 4* outputs including Lancet Respir Medicine as well as Nature and Science family journals. Prof Jenkins is UK Principle Investigator (PI) for early phase Clinical Trials in IPF as well as observational clinical trials such as the PROFILE and INJUSTIS studies (Khan et al BMJORR 2019). Prof Jenkins is also joint Editor-in-Chief of Thorax.

Demonstrable experience of Interstitial Lung Disease is essential along with excellent communication skills and a positive attitude to working collaboratively. You should have the capacity to work independently. An emerging track record of high-quality publications in the field is also desirable.

This role is offered on a fixed-term contract until 31 July 2023 with flexibility to work either full-time (38.5h per week) or part-time (minimum 0.6FTE) depending on your needs. The start date for this post is open to negotiation but to ensure timely delivery of the clinical trial ideally we would like someone to be in post as soon as possible.
