This post represents an excellent opportunity for a medically qualified trainee with an interest in oncology, endocrinology or metabolism to join a multidisciplinary team of clinical and basic scientists investigating the metabolic, neuroendocrine and immunological changes that occur in cancer cachexia.

A knowledge of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is expected and other trial specific training will be provided. There will also be the opportunity to attend other trial design related training opportunities and to present clinical data at national and international meetings.
