Detail information about job Clinical Research Nurse. Terms and conditions vacancy
Salary: £26,565 – £35,577 per annum plus up to £6,469 Inner London Allowance per annum
We wish to recruit a Clinical Research Nurse to work in the laboratory of Professors Bill Cookson and Miriam Moffatt. The laboratory is within the National Centre for Mesothelioma Research (NCMR) of The National Heart and Lung Institute.
NCMR was initiated in 2016 with a direct LIBOR grant from the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The NCMR exists as a national and international focus for excellence in research into malignant mesothelioma and lung cancers. Excellence is to be achieved both in clinical and basic research. For more information on the centre, please see http://www.imperial.ac.uk/nhli/research/centres-and-initiatives/national-centre-for-mesothelioma-research/.
The research aims to improve the early diagnosis of lung cancer and malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) by looking for mutations and other genetic changes in the cells that cause the cancer. An important aspect of this post is to ensure that patient samples (and accompanying patient consents) are routinely collected for genetic analyses, including the pipeline into the 100,000 genomes study of Genome England (https://www.genomicsengland.co.uk/).
Tumour samples will be collected after surgery, but to aid early diagnosis the research will also be looking for genetic changes in pleural fluid and in samples from needle biopsy. You will therefore liaise with different clinical teams to organise sample collections.
You will have the opportunity to work with other team members who analyse the samples in the laboratory and will be encouraged to take part in the analysis and interpretation of the results, and in the publication of the findings.
You will be working mainly at the Royal Brompton Hospital, but will also be required to spend some time at Harefield and Hammersmith Hospitals.
This post is full time and fixed-term for 12 months in the first instance, with the possibility of extending further.
Informal enquiries can be made to Prof Bill Cookson ([email protected]).
