Clinicians - launch your research career with NIHR Newcastle BRC and the AGE Research Group
The AGE Research Group are pleased to advertise two full time Clinical Research Associate positions available for enthusiastic and highly motivated individuals from any clinical discipline, wishing to complete a PhD. The closing date for applications is Monday 8th January 2024.
The successful applicants will join an interdisciplinary team with a focus on improving lives through world-class research in ageing, sarcopenia, and multiple long-term conditions, which is led by Professor Avan Aihie Sayer, Director of the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). The posts are funded by the NIHR Newcastle BRC, and the successful applicants will become members of the Ageing, Sarcopenia and Multimorbidity theme (ASM). This BRC theme builds on our internationally recognised research on ageing and involves working across academic disciplines and clinical specialties in partnership with patients and the public.
Both positions will involve working with other members of the ASM theme to undertake projects aligned with our research programmes. These programmes, which share the vision of enabling a step-change in translational ageing research that will deliver significant health benefits for older people, focus on:
Programme 1: developing novel ageing, sarcopenia and multimorbidity patient cohorts
Programme 2: building an experimental ageing medicine platform.
Both projects will provide a comprehensive training in translational research and enable the successful candidates to gain a range of transferable research skills and experience in the design, development, and delivery of an observational and/or intervention study. Specific details of the projects will be developed in collaboration with the successful applicants, depending on their background and interests.
Applications are invited from UK Registered Clinicians from any discipline with a current, valid registration with a relevant UK professional licensing body (General Medical Council, Nursing and Midwifery Council, or equivalent for other professions).
