Department of Paediatrics, Specialised Translational Research Oxford Neuromuscular Group (STRONG), Children's Hospital, John Radcliffe, Oxford
We are looking to appoint a Paediatric Research Nurse to join the Specialised Translational Research Oxford Neuromuscular Group (STRONG), based in the John Radcliffe Hospital.
The successful candidate will work as part of our clinical research team, provide nursing support to clinical studies in the John Radcliffe Hospital.
The priority responsibilities of the role will be clinical tasks and expertise that can only be offered by a trained and qualified nurse; in particular, the administration of fluids, medications or nutrients intravenously as required by the study protocol, and collection of samples, including blood. You will also be expected to perform clinical assessment of participants and provide ongoing follow up care whilst a participant is in the clinical study.
There are administrative tasks associated with this position, but these are secondary in priority and, depending on workload, administrative support from non-clinical staff may be provided (e.g. to facilitate data entry).
To be considered for this post, it is essential that you are a qualified nurse registered with the NMC with experience in venepuncture and intravenous administration, and with a good knowledge of care planning. You must be able to organise, prioritise and co-ordinate your workload, and act both on your own initiative and as part of a team. Furthermore, you must be willing to have flexible working hours due to the requirements of clinical trial scheduling.
We would especially welcome applications from people with a demonstrable interest in neuromuscular diseases, with GCP training, and with prior experience in phlebotomy, cannulation, and the use of central lines and electrocardiogram tests (ECGs).
The post will be fixed term for 1 year in the first instance with the possibility of multiple renewals.
