Senior Clinical Lecturers – Nurse and Allied Health Profession

Band 8c – 15 hours per week

UCLH NHS Foundation trust has long identified a requirement to increase the level of nursing, midwifery and allied health professional led research within the trust. This is demonstrated by the investment in the Centre for Nurse and Midwife Led Research (CNMR) funded by the UCLH/UCL Biomedical Research Centre. The CNMR brings together UCLH and UCL to support and enable nurses, midwives and Allied Health Professionals in developing world-class quality of care research.

UCLH is linked to UCL, which is a world renowned academic organisation. While it does not provide undergraduate education for nursing and allied health professions, there are many divisions and institutes that can provide academic support, depending on your clinical background, e.g. Cancer Institute, Institute of Neurology, UK Dementia Research Institute. These new posts are for a nurse and an allied health professional to cement links between the CNMR, UCLH clinical teams and UCL to develop the evidence for best practice in their speciality locally, nationally and worldwide. Post holders will spend 40% of their time in clinical research and their remaining time in clinical practice.

These posts are building on the Trusts commitment to increasing nursing, midwifery and allied health professional interest in research. This includes: a fellowship programme buying out clinical time for 2 days a week for 12 months so staff have time and support to make applications for NIHR fellowship funding; an in-house journal, Connect, for staff to share examples of good practice ; support for writing by a Royal Literary Fund Fellow; and a research education programme.

These posts aim to increase the amount of nurse and allied health professional Led research at UCLH/UCL with a view to generating research grant income to facilitate an embedded culture of evidence based practice and strengthen the nursing and allied health professional research contribution to the health agenda both nationally and internationally.

The post holder will work in partnership to identify the research questions that are pertinent to patients. Alongside the research remit, the role will have a clinical, teaching, and leadership element to ensure a high quality of patient safety is provided to all service users.

These posts offer a significant opportunity to build a postdoctoral clinical academic career within a clinical environment, and will help to establish highly visible and influential clinical academics leaders within UCLH/UCL. We will provide clinical and academic support to the post holders with the expectation that they will become clinical academic leaders in nursing and allied health professions.
