Clinical Research Training Fellow
Applications are invited from clinical trainees (CT2 – ST6) who are committed to developing a career in translational research in the areas of mental health, clinical neuroscience or the interface between physical & mental health. Two posts are available and we invite applications from candidates who wish to work in any area of the Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre’s research activity
We encourage applications from candidates who wish to work on a project based in the NIHR-Wellcome King’s Clinical Research Facility (CRF). The CRF has projects running across the range of disciplines in psychiatry from schizophrenia, depression, dementia and drug abuse through anxiety and staff responses to patient death. In collaboration with the Centre for Neuroscience Imaging there are ongoing projects that use state-of-the-art neuroimaging, including neurogenetics neurophysiological approaches to measuring brain responses and pharmacological approaches to exploring new treatments and treatment mechanisms. For a fellowship project based in the CRF it is expected the post-holder will be directly involved in assessment of patients, procedures including infusions requiring close medical monitoring, and have direct involvement with MR imaging.
The exact location of each post will depend on the particular project and supervisory team that the successful candidate has applied to work with.
Important: Before applying, potential applicants must approach supervisors to discuss projects that can be taken forward for the fellowship and developed further for a full clinical research training fellowship application. Applicants can propose their own project or develop one suggested by their prospective supervisor. Please see the Maudsley BRC website http://www.maudsleybrc.nihr.ac.uk/ for full details and pre-application guidance
Preparatory Fellowships are designed to provide the time, resources and support to help bridge the gap between current training/employment and further professional and career development in research. The Fellow will be expected to plan, prepare and submit an application to an external funding body to continue their research training. e.g. through a 3-year Clinician Training Fellowship, research grant or other Career Development award.
