Systematic Reviewer

Job Reference: 918-RA2469

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
£26,565 to £35,577 pa

This is your chance to play a key role in the life-changing mission of a unique organisation. At NHS Blood and Transplant, we are dedicated to saving and improving lives. We look after blood donation services in England and transplant services across the UK.

In the role of Systematic Reviewer, you will work closely with clinical research fellows and the leader of an important new programme, for which we have been awarded a National Institute for Health Research Cochrane programme grant. You will be part of the core team carrying out a series of systematic reviews in the field of transfusion medicine. Crucially, you will communicate your discoveries, in person and in writing, to clinical, scientific, technical and research colleagues locally, nationally and internationally. You will share and explain methodological and statistical information and exchange specialist knowledge. What’s more, you will present your findings and methodology in peer-reviewed research papers. Your contribution will be integral to the success of this project.

We expect you to have significant experience of carrying out your own research in a medical or scientific environment. You have a track record of preparing research papers, business case reports or legal documents to a high standard. Experience of undertaking systematic reviews, including data extraction is essential and experience of carrying out a Cochrane review, is desirable. It may also be useful to have a working knowledge of medical and blood transfusion terminology. For these reasons, you will need to have either a postgraduate diploma or equivalent experience in a research, medical or scientific discipline. Equally important is flair for building good working relationships and communicating with a range of people, including patients, clinicians and scientists.

This is a part-time role working 18.75 hours per week over a 3 year fixed term period. Interviews are expected to be on 18th April.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) offers a dynamic and friendly working environment where teamwork is highly valued. Personal development is also considered a priority and is supported through extensive training and development opportunities open to all employees.

Three small words, one big difference - Caring, Expert and Quality.

Together we'll save and improve more lives than ever
