Critical Care Clinical research fellow
(Trust Grade Doctor (ST3+))

Post CCT or equivalent




Critical Care




1 year full time, FTC commencing February 2021



Salary band:



This post is jointly supported by the Chief Executive’s research fellow fund and the critical care department. Specifically, we aim to prove that supporting dedicated research for doctor’s in training improves quality, safety and the culture of the unit. We will be most supportive of projects and proposals that lead to direct benefit to the patients on the unit whilst leading toward further academic development.

Clinical duties You will work as part of a large and dedicated team, on a mixed medical/surgical unit where we care for the full range of critically ill patients with multi-organ failure. We admit in excess of 2000 patients per year, and have a specialist interest in supporting haemato-oncology, and teenage cancer including opening a new additional ICU  in October 2020. The role will be as a senior ICU fellow providing leadership to the junior doctor team working with other senior fellows and the consultants to provide excellent critical care.

The successful applicant will divide their time between clinical duties and research equally (50:50).

Research duties The research requires a candidate with previous experience of data science, research or statistical methods, or software engineering and development. The appointed individual will join a small team developing a research platform that will provide real time analytics from the existing electronic patient record (EPIC) for critical care.

We have outlined two proposed projects

  • Implementation of a critical care haemato-oncology prospective audit and outcomes analysis: We have problems with both the management of infection and high rates of acquired sepsis. We also struggle with the management of severe respiratory failure in this cohort. We strongly believe that building a prospective cohort would allow us to investigate these priority areas, and provide a foundation for quality improvement and research.
  • Development of metrics to monitor patient safety on the general wards, working in close collaboration with Information Services analysts. Metrics would be based on NEWS2/the patient deterioration pathway. The outputs would be fed into the Deteriorating Patient Safety Group, the Exemplar Ward Programme and the Trust Quality Account. They would also help deliver the National Deteriorating Patient CQUIN that has recently been announced.

The rota is banded at 1A. 

UK and overseas students are encouraged to apply, and all applicants must be eligible for full GMC registration and have a background in anaesthesia/critical care medicine or a related specialty.
