This is an exciting opportunity for a clinical research fellow to join the fast-growing team “S.T.R.O.N.G.” (Specialised Translational Research Oriented Neuromuscular Group”) based in the department of Paediatrics, University of Oxford, and part of the MDUK Oxford neuromuscular centre. The “STRONG” is involved in several innovative trials in neuromuscular disorders and Angelman Syndrome . The team are leading on, ambitious programs of digital biomarker discovery and new-born screening. Despite being a very recently established group, the STRONG group has attracted several funding from the EU, pharma partners, University of Oxford, and different charities including MDUK, FAST UK, and DMD Hub.
The research fellow will actively contribute to clinical research and participate in clinical trials as key co-investigators. This post primarily provides experience in clinical research in a multi-disciplinary academic environment, as well as the opportunity to take part in peer-reviewed publications. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to join i.e. neuromuscular clinics under the supervision of highly specialised consultants. For candidates interested in research beyond the current post, there may be the opportunity available to develop a programme towards a higher degree (PhD).
