Research Fellow in Emergency Medicine (2 posts)

Start date: 1st August 2018 for 1 year

King’s College Hospital Emergency Department (ED) is a Major Trauma Centre, a Hyper Acute Stroke Unit, a regional Cardiac Arrest Centre and a regional Arrhythmia Centre in the capital. We see approximately 140,000 patients per year, a quarter of whom are children. The hospital is part of the King’s Health Partners (KHP) Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC). All secondary specialties and almost every tertiary specialty are on site and it has an excellent international reputation for research.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the academic unit in the ED. Each post will be 50% clinical and 50% pure research time on a full salary. You will be supervised by clinical staff and academic AHSC staff and there is the opportunity for supervision for an MD or PhD.

The successful candidates will be expected to meet with staff to discuss and plan areas of their research. There are many projects in place; local projects in different stages of development and more than 30 portfolio studies. The ED collaborates with Anaesthetics, Critical Care and Trauma (the ACET team) to provide extensive research nurse presence.

We have close links with other specialties including Trauma, Stroke Medicine, Paediatrics, Psychiatry and Medical Education. Research in any of these areas at their interface with Emergency Medicine (EM) will be encouraged, as well as others.

The post will suit any trainee or potential trainee in EM who has completed their Foundation training and wishes to spend time in research whilst maintaining their clinical skills.

Closing date: 22/5/18

Interviews should take place week commencing: 4/6/18
