Full-time fixed term contract for 2 years
Together our staff and students are discovering innovative ways to change the world for the better and there has never been a more exciting time for you to join us. We are one of the top universities worldwide and have an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. We are led by discovery and innovation, with the synergy between research and learning at the core of our activity.
In this role you will provide research skills and support to the ReST Study (a feasibility Study on Screening of Re latives of Patients Affected by Non-S yndromic T horacic Aortic Diseases). This study will test the hypothesis that a tailored genetic and imaging screening of first- and second-degree relatives of patients affected by non-syndromic thoracic aortic diseases (NS-TADs) warrants early recognition of newly affected individuals. These individuals constitute a specific population of patients, requiring dedicated imaging surveillance and/or earlier prophylactic surgery.
You will work with state-of-the-art research facilities, including dedicated imaging and genetic screening programmes in a recently built Interventional Medicine Facility for clinical research. You will be responsible for patient scanning, blood sampling analysis, data acquisitionand the analysis of all imaging and genetic data, in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary team at Glenfield Hospital. You will also perform literature searches and write a first draft of research papers on the effectiveness of such screening programmes.
The post is suitable for a clinically trained investigator, particularly those in specialist training for cardiology, vascular or cardiothoracic surgery, or for those eligible and planning to enter the specialist training grade and who are interested in pursuing a period of full time research leading to a higher degree (MD or PhD).
This post is funded by the NIHR Leicester BRC Cardiovascular theme based at Glenfield Hospital. The post is for two years in the first instance.
