Clinical Research Fellow in advanced Cardiovascular Imaging
DIVISION OF CARDIOVASCULAR MEDICINE
RADCLIFFE DEPARTMENT OF MEDICINE
We are seeking to appoint an ambitious Clinical Research Fellow, who has an interest in advanced Cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) imaging, to drive an exciting research programme focused on the development and validation of new technologies that allow non-invasive detection of coronary inflammation and vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques using machine learning approaches. Both junior fellows starting a DPhil and senior fellows will be considered for this post.
You will work alongside a multidisciplinary team of clinical cardiologists, clinician scientists, radiologists, radiographers and engineers, and will have the opportunity to translate new applications coming from the basic science labs of the group directly into clinical diagnostic tools. You will be expected to interact with the Engineering Department in Oxford and industrial partners and an international network of experts in the field of cardiovascular CT. You will also be expected to coordinate a multicentre clinical study on cardiovascular CT, and take part in the academic activity of the Department (e.g. contributing to scientific meetings and presentations), working collaboratively to help to realise the ambitious research programme that is underway.
You will hold a primary medical degree together with (or be eligible to obtain) GMC registration. You will have proven relevant experience in cardiovascular CT (clinical or translational), evidence of excellent communication and organisational skills and sufficient leadership and personal skills to effectively undertake the role of clinical fellow in a large teaching hospital.
The post is funded by the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and fixed term until 31 March 2020 with a possible extension until 31 March 2022. You will be based at the John Radcliffe Hospital under the direct supervision of Prof Charalambos Antoniades.
