The Oxford CABG Bioresource (OCB) is seeking a clinical research fellow to support our ongoing translational program of work and drive a research project funded by SANOFI, under the supervision of Dr Charis Antoniades and Professor Keith Channon.
The OCB is an ongoing program of work that is building one of the world’s most extensively phenotyped clinical cohorts of patients with coronary atherosclerosis. It uses advanced clinical imaging and various ex vivo bioassays to study the mechanisms controlling the cross-talk between adipose tissue and the cardiovascular system in humans.
This Fellow will use resources from OCB and will recruit prospective patients to be enrolled in the project, aiming to understand the role of insulin signaling in the cross-talk between adipose tissue and the vascular wall. This translational study will involve a wide range of experimental techniques, spanning from tissue culture to gene expression studies and the discovery of new molecular pathways involved in the vascular complications of diabetes (using an –omics approach).
The successful candidate is expected to hold a primary medical degree (MB, ChB or equivalent with honours) and GMC registration or equivalent medical qualification. Exceptional communication skills and sufficient leadership and personal skills to undertake effectively the role of clinical research fellow in a large teaching hospital are essential requirement.
The post will be available for 24 months in the first instance with possibility to extent to 30 months. It is available to start as soon as possible and is based in the West Wing Level 6, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online; you will be required to upload a supporting statement and a copy of your CV as part of your online application.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Friday 22 August 2014. Interviews are anticipated early September 2014.
This post is funded to 30 April 2015 in the first instance.
