Medically qualified research fellow scale (£31,614 – £47,647 p.a.) depending on experience.

This post is available from August 2017 for a fixed term of two years.

Application closing date: 20th January 2017

  • Are you medically qualified and ambitious with an interest in research and cardiac magnetic resonance?
  • Do you have experience of working in cardiology and cardiac imaging?
  • Do you want to further your career by undertaking an MD degree in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

You will support and undertake research in Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR). Your research will focus on acute myocardial infarction and diabetic heart disease and the use of recently developed methods including diffusion tensor imaging, multi-directional flow and parametric mapping to determine predictors of clinical outcome in patient groups. You will lead your own studies in this area, including methods development and clinical studies and contribute to the work of the research group as a whole.

You will work towards an MD and there may be an opportunity to extend this by a further year in order for you to obtain a PhD. This is an exciting opportunity if you are a cardiology trainee in the later stages of training, especially if you are aiming to sub specialise in cardiac imaging or pursue an academic career. You will also have the opportunity to undertake clinical training in CMR up to Level 3.
