The Division of Nursing in the School of Health Sciences is one of London’s most established providers of health care education, delivering high quality undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. It has a strong portfolio of world-leading research in the areas of child health, mental health care, people with physical health and long-term conditions, acute and critical care and care of the older person. The Division works in partnership with service users and carers, alongside health and social care experts and providers to develop and deliver education and research which shapes future nurse leaders.
The division is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to support the Principle Investigator conducting the Minimisation of Sedation in Intensive Care Patients (MisSion-Icu) study.

Preparation of journal and report publications, presentations and subsequent research grant applications will also be involved. 

Person Specification

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic and well-organised with a strong work ethic and enjoy examining clinical practice, critical thinking and team working.
