Band 5/6 Paediatric Clinical Research Nurse


Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust was created on 1st October 2007 by merging St Mary’s NHS Trust and Hammersmith Hospitals NHS Trust and integrating with Imperial College London Faculty of Medicine. Now the largest NHS Trust in the country, we have come together to establish the UK’s first Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC).

We have an active paediatric research portfolio based within a new, dedicated and purpose-built Children’s Clinical Research Facility (CCRF). Over recent years, there has been significant expansion of clinical research into food allergy, including cutting-edge studies for children who experience allergic reactions and for treating food allergy through immunotherapy.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 5 or Band 6 Research Nurse, depending on experience, to join our CCRF at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. The post will be funded for 12 months in the first instance. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are eager to learn more about clinical allergy including the latest immunotherapy techniques to treat food allergy and provide excellent care to young people and their families participating in our research studies. The successful applicant will be part of a first class team delivering ongoing and ground-breaking paediatric allergy/asthma studies within the CCRF.

The role will involve assessing and managing care pathways for participants in research and will include: the recruitment, education and monitoring of research subjects; providing support for research participants and their families; and the accurate collection and documentation of data. You will work collaboratively with the research and wider multidisciplinary teams in the management of your caseload of research participants and you will act as a knowledgeable resource for staff, researchers, and research participants and their families. You will also require a working knowledge of and compliance with local, national and international research regulations.

Previous experience in clinical allergy/asthma would be an advantage but is not essential, as the role will be fully supported, with training provided to ensure patient safety and compliance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) to the highest level of excellence. Experience in clinical research is desirable.

The post will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check at an advanced level.
