We are looking to appoint 2 Clinical Research Fellows to work 50:50 between clinical service (Major Trauma Service) and research at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham (QEHB). The research component will be conducted within the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre(SRMRC) also based at QEHB, working closely with the University of Birmingham (UoB) and Royal Centre for Defence Medicine (RCDM). Both posts are for the duration of 2 years and it is expected that the post-holders will register at the University of Birmingham for a higher degree (MSc Trauma Sciences/ MSc by research).
The appointee must demonstrate that they have experience in their speciality equivalent to ST3 level or above and have an interest in major trauma and a strong interest in research.
The NIHR SRMRC was established in 2011, with joint funding (£2 million/year) from the Department of Health (DoH) and Ministry of Defence (MoD) until 2019. It is a collaborative venture between the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHBFT), UoB and RCDM. The core aim of the NIHR SRMRC is to provide an unrivalled research environment to improve the care of those who sustain major injury in both military and civilian settings. Over the past 7 years the SRMRC has developed a unique and cohesive multi-disciplinary environment for trauma research; civilian and military basic scientists working alongside trauma clinicians in areas including immunology, endocrinology, microbiology, neuroscience, biomedical engineering and computer engineering. The centre has leveraged more than £50 million of external research funding in the last 7 years and enjoys an outstanding international reputation for its cutting edge research in trauma.
The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary clinical environment, and need to have excellent networking skills, as they will be required to liaise with other teams both in QEHB, trauma units, as well as a number of Military personnel. Whilst the primary responsibility will be to civilian patients, there will be cross cover with military teams. The Fellow will participate regularly in both MDT and morbidity & mortality meetings.
There is a daily consultant delivered ward round of all the MTS patients, with 24 hour consultant cover (non resident) and a 24 hour (resident) Fellow on a full shift system.
These posts are new 50:50 clinical:research posts joint funded by the NHS and NIHR SRMRC grant. The research element will support research in trauma medicine and will work both at the QEHB and at the University of Birmingham. The clinical component will be as a Fellow in the Major Trauma Service.
The research will be housed both in dedicated clinical research facilities on the Trust site and at the University and the post holder will be supported by other research staff including research nurses, technical staff and trial administrators.
This post is for 40 basic hours, but there may be potential for on-call by mutual agreement.
