We seek highly motivated clinical trainees interested in neurology research to carry out translational research within the NIHR Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) which is focused on the pull-through of developments in the fields of Neurodegeneration, Neuroinflammation and Cerebrovascular disease into early phase clinical trials. Research in these areas is supported by cross-cutting themes of Advanced Medical Imaging, Genomic Medicine and Bioinformatics, and in silico medicine. The NIHR Sheffield BRC brings together outstanding scientists from the University of Sheffield Departments of Neuroscience and Engineering in multidisciplinary research institutes SITraN and INSIGNEO together with clinical disciplines at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to improve the treatment and care of people living with chronic neurological disorders. Clinical Research projects will take place in conjunction with the Academic Directorate of Neuroscience at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and will be supported by the NIHR Sheffield Clinical Research Facility.
Clinical trainees will have the opportunity to learn the principles and practice of experimental medicine clinical trials. Candidates are expected to be highly motivated, enthusiastic individuals wishing to excel in both clinical and academic training and with the ambition to be amongst the next generation of leading academic Neurologists. Posts will be aimed towards post-MRCP candidates who have an interest in Neurology as a future career path. Candidates may be at Fellowship level for those aiming to undertake a PhD or at Lectureship level for those who already have completed a PhD. The posts will provide clinical and research training in Neurology and are available between 2018 and 2022 for 1 year as pump-priming awards with opportunities for further research developments tailored to the individual fellow.
For any enquiries please contact the BRC Director Prof. Pam Shaw (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Deputy Director Prof. Chris McDermott (email@example.com).
