If you are committed to providing high quality care to children and their families helping them to make the right decisions about their treatment options, with the skills to guide and advise them throughout their research journey, this role could be for you.

You’ll be joining an award-winning and diverse team of experts at MFT who are making a difference to the future of care in the NHS by asking questions and finding out the answers.

Clinical research at MFT:

MFT is a leading provider of tertiary and specialist healthcare services treating over one million patients each year.

Our Research and Innovation Division is dedicated to driving continuous improvement in the care our patients receive through clinical research.

MFT has a large research portfolio, with excellent facilities and internationally renowned researchers; we have a global reputation for conducting and delivering pioneering research.

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual who is capable of contributing to the development and supporting of research in all potential research areas within MFT as required as part of the Paediatric Research Team (Generic Speciality).
