ICU Research Fellowships
Department: Clinical Services
Grade: Clinical Research Fellow
(ST3 equivalent or above)
The National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia Health Services Research Centre (HSRC) invites applications for research fellowships in conjunction with the UCL/UCLH Surgical Outcomes Research Centre (SOuRCe) and The London Clinic.
A number of HSRC-related research projects will be available, including the National Emergency Laparotomy Audit, the Perioperative Quality Improvement Programme, the Core Outcome Measures for Perioperative and Anaesthesia Care (COMPAC) initiative and the Sprint National Anaesthesia Projects.
These posts have a clinical commitment to The London Clinic Intensive Care Unit. The London Clinic has a busy 11-bedded unit which admits Level 2/3 patients from a wide range of specialties, including haematology, oncology, surgery and medicine, providing all modalities of organ support and fully supported by consultants in Intensive Care Medicine.
Applicants should have a minimum of six months Clinical Intensive Care experience, as well as excellent organisational skills and an interest in academic anaesthesia. Expected start date will be biannually each year. These are non-training posts, but successful candidates will be encouraged to prospectively apply to their local training programme for Out of Programme Research post status.
All posts are appointed for one year in the first instance, but subject to performance, successful candidates will be encouraged to retain two- or three-year appointments to enable study towards MD(res) or PhD degrees. These degrees will normally be registered at University College London and will be supervised by Prof Mike Grocott and Dr Ramani Moonesinghe. Research projects should be based on HSRC priorities; however, other project ideas are welcome and will be considered. Fellows will be provided with access to workspace at UCL and the RCoA.
Enquiries are welcome throughout the year and should be directed as follows:
Research: Contact Dr Ramani Moonesinghe (HSRC Director)
Clinical commitment: Contact Dr John Goldstone, Clinical Director, Intensive Care Unit, The London Clinic.
