This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic, clinically astute and motivated Registered Nurse to become involved in and support a portfolio of medical research projects.


We specialise in experimental medicine and Early Phase clinical trials and cover many areas including diabetes, vascular health, cardiovascular disease, dementia, respiratory conditions and addictive behaviours.


The post holder will play a key part in the provision of care and management of patients participating in clinical studies. The successful candidate will demonstrate a broad range of experience and skills that can be transferred to variety of clinical research settings. General experience and a flexible ‘can do’ approach and attention to detail is essential.


It is essential to have an interest in research. An understanding and awareness of general clinical research including early phase studies and the regulatory issues in its conduct is desirable although a full and thorough training and induction package will be provided. The post holder will work closely with and be assigned to a band 6 Senior Research Nurse/Practitioner.

The post holder will have the opportunity to demonstrate initiative and flexibility. He/she will be able to develop their skills as a proactive team player with excellent verbal and written communication skills and organisational abilities. Applicants should be able to express their enthusiasm and commitment to the role and will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to organise, prioritise and adjust their workload in relation to the requirements of multiple studies.


The post holder will be expected to recruit to and support the Exeter Ten Thousand (EXTEND) research cohort and the NIHR BioResource. He/she will also clinically support all other research studies in the facility.


Applicants should be able/willing to perform venepuncture, cannulation and Immediate Life Support (ILS).


Although the post holder will mostly work Mon-Fri - social hours (starting at 8am), there is an expectation that staff will participate in the on-call rota for emergency un-blinding of studies and will actively participate in other studies that may need out-of hours assistance.
