Applications are invited for the post of Clinical Research Fellow in Gynaecology and Obstetrics with a focus on Endometriosis research. This is a Phase II randomized, double blind study in women with endometriosis.

The post will be based at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, although you will be expected to work at any of the Trust's sites. In addition, you will be expected to travel to other research sites to provide support and research activity, if required.

The department is within one of the most dynamic new university teaching hospitals in the country with excellent reputations in patient care and staff training/education. The directorate prides itself on its work environment and teamworking, set within new facilities. Norfolk is a county with beautiful scenery, superb leisure facilities and excellent links to the rest of the country.

Main duties of the job

The main duties of the post are to provide support for a Phase II study in endometriosis with our commercial Sponsor. This is a Phase II randomized, double blind study in women with endometriosis. In addition, some ad hoc support for other research activity within the department may be needed but this should not interfere with any work required for the study. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to explore other research opportunities within the department as well as links with the University of East Anglia.

Clinical duties will be as required by the directorate but are likely to be within the gynaecology one-stop clinics, gynaecology outpatient clinics and theatres. On-call is not a component of this post, and the candidate should ensure that any on-site on-call duties performed upon request of the directorate on an ad hoc basis does not interfere with day-to-day research commitments.

The successful applicant will be required to support the Principal Investigators with the set up and delivery of the study. Whilst a detailed knowledge of NIHR & commercial research methodology is not required a keenness to learn and a demonstration of an ability to write scientific articles is required.

Applicants must have full GMC registration with a licence to practise.
