Clinical Research Fellowship in Emerging and Zoonotic Infections
£31,838 - £35,952 pa

The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health has been awarded nearly £4 million funding from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to establish a Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU) in Emerging & Zoonotic Infections. The HPRU is a partnership with Public Health England in collaboration with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine led by Professor Tom Solomon.

You will demonstrate the potential for outstanding development as a clinical academic in research. Unlike NIHR ACFs which are only offered in certain disciplines and at certain career stages, we are willing to consider doctors from a range of relevant backgrounds including epidemiology, infectious disease, microbiology, virology, organ based specialties and general practice. You should have an MBChB, MB BS or equivalent medical degree or have completed foundation training.

You will work on research developing pilot data which can be used towards a subsequent research fellowship application from NIHR, Wellcome Trust, MRC or other. The research project will either be in one of the areas suggested on the HPRU Website, or in any other area of health protection research relating to one of the 5 HPRU research themes. The post is available for 1 year.
