Do you like working in a fast-past environment, with a dynamic and varied remit? Are you interested in enabling improvement and innovation that supports clinical research? Would you like to be part of introducing changes that better support the people who work in this environment?

The NHS needs to develop and retain a much broader cadre of clinician researchers to provide local leadership and delivery of high quality clinical research. We know that patients benefit from receiving care in organisations where clinical staff are involved in research. There is, however, a suboptimal match between the concentration of clinical research and the geographical distribution of disease burden.

The NIHR, which is funded through the Department of Health and Social Care, is fully committed to maintaining a vibrant and dynamic research landscape. Working with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AoMRC) and several universities, the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) is establishing a framework to support the upskilling of experienced clinicians working in everyday settings; enable them to deliver clinical research and develop as local research leaders.

You will be proactive and initiative-led and be able to work effectively as the link between the various stakeholders; supporting the Senior Learning Manager who is leading on this project on behalf of the NIHR CRN.

The employer for this role will be the University of Leeds.

The role will be based in either Leeds or London.
