Duties and responsibilities

As part of an emerging international collaboration, you will lead an array of scientific studies and accurately interpret findings and their implications on clinical practice, make use of the exclusive ICCP resources including the FHSC global registry, write high-quality manuscripts and grant proposals, and present results at international clinical scientific conferences/congresses. You will manage a varied workload with attention to detail, conduct/lead specialised work assignments, and work closely with the multidisciplinary ICCP team and collaborators both within the UK and abroad with different professional and cultural backgrounds.

You must have a PhD degree, and post-doctoral or equivalent experience in a medical/clinical field related to cardiovascular disease prevention/risk factors (including knowledge of dyslipidaemias), epidemiology or closely related discipline. You must have advanced skills in research methods and study design and be able to independently conduct statistical and analytical procedures relevant to the post.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes which are ultimately aimed towards finding new treatments and making scientific and medical advances, and where there are no satisfactory or reasonably practical alternatives to their use. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research
