Do you wish to make a difference to research in the NHS? An opportunity has arisen for a Quality Assurance/GCP Manager to join the Research & Innovation Department at Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust. The application deadline for this vacancy has been extended to 16th September.
NUH has identified excellence in research for the benefit of patients as a core component of its corporate vision to be the best acute teaching organisation by 2016.
In order to realise this vision, the Trust has formed a close research partnership with the University of Nottingham (UoN), with a common research strategy and an integrated system of research management and governance. This research partnership has recently been awarded three prestigious National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Units in Gastrointestinal (including Liver) Disease, Respiratory Disease and Deafness and Hearing Problems and has been outstandingly successful in other major NIHR competitions. NUH therefore expects to be at the forefront of innovation in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ill health and in the translation of advances in basic biomedical research into benefits for patients.
