Job description

Job summary

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated Research Fellow wishing to develop a career in academia, by joining a research group in a world leading University and partaking in an interdisciplinary collaboration looking at novel data centric interventions for health condition management, running in-house projects and be involved in international collaborations.

The research programme focuses on the Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Studies Collaboration (FHSC), an international programme involving investigators worldwide, supported by the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS). The FHSC is a global initiative led by Professor Kausik Ray (Imperial College London, UK) and an international executive and steering committees. We at Imperial College are the leading research group and the Coordinating Centre for this project, which currently involves a network of investigators from 66 countries worldwide and a global registry of patients with Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH). The mission of the FHSC is to empower the medical and global community to seek changes in their respective countries or organizations regarding how FH is detected and managed, with a view to promoting early diagnosis and more effective treatment of this condition.

Duties and responsibilities

You will contribute and help lead the coordination, development, maintenance and expansion of the FHSC collaboration, network and registry, and will supervise and conduct specialized work assignments in the FHSC project. You will handle a varied workload, will work close together with a multi-disciplinary team at Imperial College, and will interact with a wide variety of people, both internal and external to Imperial College, in the UK and abroad, and from different backgrounds (clinicians, researchers, IT professionals, administration, local study coordinators…).

Essential requirements

You must have a PhD in a medical, epidemiological, or public health related subject, or in a closely related discipline, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience. You must have knowledge of research methods and statistical procedures as well as practical experience within a research environment.

Further information

The post will be full time, fixed term for 18 months in the first instance.

Should you require any further details on the role please contact Prof. Kausik (Kosh) Ray email address: k.ray@imperial.ac.uk

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published. For more information, see https://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-evaluation/

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research
