Full Time
The Hepatology service within Gastroenterology is offering an excellent opportunity for two enthusiastic nurses to contribute to join the current Hepatology Research Team to further develop research in this service.

This will include the delivery of a number of clinical research projects requiring expertise (with suitable training provided if needed) in multiple aspects of research, ranging from both outpatient and in patient visits to computer-office-based work including data protection and research study planning and set up.

The role will require enthusiasm, commitment and an ability to be self-motivated. The service offers a friendly and supportive working environment along with personal development opportunities.

Applications are invited from nurses who would like to work in clinical research. You must have a minimum of 2 years post-registration experience in an acute setting, and experience of working at a senior level would be advantageous. IT skills are essential and will be required by the post holder.

Successful applicants will have the ability to work independently, manage their own caseload and effectively communicate in various formats. A degree of flexibility is required for this post as the job may require travel, with occasional unsociable hours.

Main duties of the job

The post holder is responsible for the co-ordination of research projects/clinical trials within Hepatology. Key duties and responsibilities are: - identification and recruitment of suitable candidates to participate in studies - management and facilitation of studies, ensuring data is correctly gathered and recorded - co-ordination of the care of patients within the context of the clinical trials - adherence to ICH GCP guidelines - when required, support of junior colleagues in the effective management of patients in clinical trials You will be supervised by the Hepatology Research Leads: Lynsey Corless & George Abouda, line-managed by the Trusts Research, Development & Innovation Matron and Senior Research Nurses, and supported by the other Hepatology Research Staff. A full induction and orientation package will be available to assist successful applicants. Although the post holder's primary focus would be within Hepatology Research, there is an expectation that you are also responsive to the research needs of the organisation and may therefore be required to work in other research areas in the Trust.
