Closing date 6th May 2020
This is an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Research Fellow with experience in oncology to apply their skills at the cutting edge of imaging biomarkers in cancer research. You will be working on projects involving CT, MRI, PET-CT or PET-MR including associated novel radiopharmaceuticals and contrast agents, on a programme whose overall aims are to apply advanced multi-modal imaging to the study of cancer and cancer therapy. You will be primarily accountable to Prof. Eric Aboagye and will be jointly supervised by Dr Laura Kenny. Imperial College is already involved in world-leading translational imaging research, coordinated through the Imaging theme of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) led by Professor Aboagye. The post is funded by the Cancer Research UK accelerator – NCITA.
Duties and responsibilities You will work within the Clinical Trials arm of The National Cancer Imaging Translational Accelerator (NCITA). NCITA brings together seven of the leading cancer imaging centres (Imperial College, Cambridge, ICR, KCL, Manchester, Oxford and UCL) to address gaps in translation of imaging biomarkers to clinical trials and to support clinical decision making. NCITA will establish a fast and robust cross-institutional pipeline to produce quality-assured locked down Imaging Biomarkers (IB) both for drug discovery within pharma clinical trials and within the NHS for areas of unmet clinical need. The key purpose of the post is to develop and manage clinical research studies and clinical trials in cancer imaging combined with traditional blood and tissue assessment. You will work collaboratively with the research teams, the wider multidisciplinary team and other NCITA centres and act as an expert resource for staff, researchers, research participants and patients.
Essential requirements • You will have a Degree in medicine or equivalent, and a full GMC registration • You will have minimum experience equivalent to ST1 or above • You will be knowledgeable, curious and passionate • You will be able to use your initiative to pursue opportunities to broaden your skills portfolio • You should provide evidence of being able to work independently and as a part of a team • You should be comfortable working with large datasets
