We wish to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated individual, capable of working independently and using initiative, to act as a Senior Research Associate for the Cancer Work Stream of the Nutrition theme of the Bristol Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), for two ongoing prostate cancer randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and other cancer related research studies.

You will be responsible for the day to day co-ordination and running of a 2×2 factorial feasibility RCT, of which men with prostate cancer are randomised to a physical activity and metformin intervention, and a small pre-surgical RCT exploring Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) outcomes in men with localised prostate disease. In addition, you will be fully involved in all research elements of the Cancer Work Stream, which may include qualitative or quantitative research

You will be based at the NIHR Bristol BRC (Nutrition Theme). However, weekly visits and meetings at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust and Canynge Hall, University of Bristol, will be required. The post provides an exceptional opportunity for an experienced researcher to develop their skills further as part of an exciting NIHR BRC, as well as a multidisciplinary research and clinical team

Whilst the primary role will be co-ordination of the two trials and other cancer related research within the Cancer Work Stream, there will also be opportunities for participating in peer reviewed, academic publications, conference attendance and presentations, and attending Short Courses and other training; as appropriate to the post-holder’s interests and expertise.

This is not a lab-based role.

The selection process will be held on Wednesday 5 June 2019.
