Clinical research fellows and PhD students
We have a rolling programme of studentships with clinical fellows and PhD students embedded within the ICR-CTSU to gain applied knowledge of clinical trial development, conduct and reporting whilst working towards a PhD.
We have a number of PhD students working on a wide range of projects including refining methods for biostatistical analysis, assessing and enhancing equality diversity and inclusion and improving collection of patient reported outcomes.
Clinical trial professional development
Our in-house staff training programme includes trial regulation and conduct training, specialist data management training and bitesize statistics workshops for non-statisticians. In addition to this our staff benefit from attending external career development training and events.
We run a regular series of research meetings at which we present our work and invite external speakers to discuss topics of interest to the wider ICR. Our staff can also access the wider programme of ICR seminars covering all of the work at the Institute, and benefit from the ICR training programme.
We recognise the crucial importance of promoting the rewarding and varied career available in clinical trials to the next generation. We attend careers fairs at schools and universities and we are always looking for an opportunity to engage with students, particularly any which involve groups currently underrepresented in STEM careers. Contact us at [email protected] if you would like us to attend or speak at an event you are organising.
