NIHR Student Internships in Translational Medicine

An excellent opportunity has arisen for three individuals (typically undergraduate medical students, but those with relevant Masters degrees or established health professionals looking to move into research would potentially be suitable), to work with an NIHR Research Professor on a translational medicine project.  There are three full time positions for a period of 2 months each with a salary equivalent to a grade 4.1: £11.06 per hour; £20,989 per annum pro rata.

These prestigious posts have been awarded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) in order to give medical students experience of working in translational research early in their careers. Projects are available with Profs Richard McManus (Monitoring in hypertension and pregnancy), Marian Knight (National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit) and Alison Simmons (Gastroenterology/Immunology).  The intern will:

  • Receive appropriate training;
  • Develop a translational research project (see the job description for details);
  • Prepare the work for potential presentation +/- publication in an academic journal.

For informal enquiries please contact Profs Richard McManus (richard.mcmanus@phc.ox.ac.uk ), Marian Knight (marian.knight@npeu.ox.ac.uk) and Alison Simmons (Alison.simmons@imm.ox.ac.uk ). 

For further details and how to apply, please see the job description

Deadline for receipt of applications is noon on Wednesday 8 June and interviews will be held on Tuesday 28 June.

 

 Application Process

Unless stated otherwise all applications for our vacancies are made on line through the University of Oxford jobs website and only in very exceptional circumstances can we receive applications via other means.  If you have a disability or other compelling reason that prevents you submitting an application on line please email our recruitment team at recruit@phc.ox.ac.uk for advice.

Due to the additional work it creates and in fairness to other applicants, we are unable to accept late applications, so please make sure you are aware of the application deadline and submit yours in plenty of time.  All posts close promptly at noon on the closing date (and remember to allow for technical hitches, which seem to occur at the most inconvenient moment!)

Please follow the link in the posted advert to see further particulars and to apply.   As part of your application, you will be required to upload the documents below:

1. A Curriculum Vitae, (for most posts, but not required for posts at grades 1-5 as a fuller on-line application form is completed)

2. A letter of application/supporting statement.

If you are applying for a research post and you have had periods of working part-time, please indicate this on your CV or in your supporting statement.  This will ensure that any outputs such as publications are fairly judged when considered alongside the expected outputs of full-time workers. 

Where posts are advertised full-time, we may be able to consider part-time working or job share arrangements depending on the requirements of the role.  If you want to work part-time and this option is not expressly stated in the advert or job information, please email recruit@phc.ox.ac.uk to enquire whether the role you are applying for might be available on a part-time basis.

Should you experience any difficulties using the online application system, please email recruitment.support@admin.ox.ac.uk

Sometimes emails from us may be caught in spam filters.  If you are waiting to hear from us about an application please monitor your junk email folder.  We contact all candidates to let them know the outcome whether they are shortlisted for interview or not. 

Please be aware that for some positions we receive a high volume of applications and, although we do try to give feedback to unsuccessful candidates when requested, we are not always able to give individual feedback to applicants who are not shortlisted for interview.  We shortlist candidates based on the selection criteria that you will find towards the end of the job description.
