Paediatric Allergy Clinical Research Nurse
We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated nurse to join our team as a Paediatric Allergy research nurse. This new post has been created as a consequence of sustained activity in paediatric research. The Trust is one of London's largest recruiting paediatric sites contributing to NIHR Clinical Research Network (NIHR-CRN) supported studies.
The post-holder will primarily be responsible for activities related to recruitment, randomisation and retention of participants on the Palisade Trial. This trial is a commercial clinical trial investigating an oral immunotherapy product for peanut desensitisation. The trial aims to develop a convenient dosing of consistent amounts of peanut protein with well-defined concentrations of peanut allergens.
There are also a number of other studies currently running or in preparation within the cutting-edge Paediatric Allergy research department, including follow-on studies for the LEAP and EAT cohorts, ADAPT, PRONUTS and others. The post holder will be expected to contribute to these studies as necessary.
This role is ideally suited to those with significant expertise in caring for children with atopic disease. If you are not experienced in this area, but wish to develop skills in paediatric allergy and atopic disease, we have a skilled team of doctors, nurses and dieticians who will assist in training you.
Applications are welcomed from applicants with a disability. We can make reasonable adjustments and offer support and advice in a variety of ways throughout the application process. Equality of opportunity is our policy.
As an organisation we are committed to developing our services in ways that best suit the needs of our patients. This means that some staff groups will increasingly be asked to work a more flexible shift pattern so that we can offer services in the evenings or at weekends.
