Post : Clinical Researcher in the development of technology in healthcare

The role
1) You will join a research group focused on combining the fields of bioengineering and medicine to generate innovative methods for identification of patients at risk, and on delivering user-centred clinical solutions to drive this research innovation into clinical practice. Reporting to the Principal Investigators, you will have responsibility for carrying out aspects of the Oxford BRC research programme.
2) As part of this multi-disciplinary team you will utilise bioinformatics resources to improve early recognition of patients at risk of deterioration. Research will focus on the fusion of novel sensor data, real-time physiology, biochemical, clinical and operational data. The job will involve literature review, design and delivery of research interventions, patient recruitment, and associated data collection and data analysis.
3) You will also be expected to undertake project management responsibilities to ensure that all required regulatory and ethical documentation is in place. You will also assist the senior researchers submit original manuscripts for peer-review publication, and draft grant applications for future research projects. You will be expected to work closely with the other researchers, bioengineers, and software developers working in the team. The research team has expertise in both quantitative and qualitative research methods, allowing full evaluation of research innovations moving into clinical practice.

Project summary:
Over the next five years we plan to build on the achievements of our highly productive partnership between engineers, biomedical scientists and clinicians.
Our vision is for patient care to become agnostic to patient location. From the patient’s home through to Intensive Care, we are developing monitoring and alerting systems appropriate to the environment and the patient.
