A72668R - Clinical Research Associate in Dermatology
 

Salary: £28,537 - £40,090 per annum.

Closing date: 30 June 2017.

You will join will join the Institute of Cellular Medicine, the largest research institute in the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Newcastle University and the internationally renowned Department of Dermatology, based at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne. Newcastle University was recently successful in securing an interdisciplinary award from the Rosetrees Trust to develop personalised ultraviolet B (UVB) treatment of psoriasis. You will play a key role in this translational research project that aims to develop scalable biomarkers of UVB phototherapy response and through computational modelling integrate clinical and biomarker data to predict outcome of UVB phototherapy in individual patients. This project benefits from close links with the Newcastle NIHR biomedical research centre (BRC), the School of Computing Science (Dr Paolo Zuliani) and Newcastle’s MRC/EPSRC Molecular Pathology Node. Using a systems biology and multi-disciplinary approach, the post holder will work to refine and test phototherapy regimes in a pilot clinical study. Together this provides an outstanding training programme in translational dermatology. We have established an exciting interdisciplinary systems biology research environment comprising collaborations between dermatology, photobiology, molecular pathology, computing science, bioinformatics and biostatistics.

You will hold a medical degree and a license to practice in the UK. You are an ambitious, dynamic, conscientious, creative, self-motivated team player, with a desire to pursue interdisciplinary research and contribute to improvements in patient care for patients with psoriasis. You will be part of an interdisciplinary team comprising medical, bioinformatics, and computer science researchers. You are willing to expand your knowledge beyond your main expertise, in particular towards state-of-the-art computational approaches to personalised medicine.

The post is tenable for 1 year initially but may be extended. This position provides an excellent platform to apply for a research fellowship, as well as opportunities to register for a higher degree.
