About the Role
We are seeking to appoint a Clinical Research Fellow at SpR / Lecturer level to join a 60-strong research team of Scientists, Clinicians and Clinical Trial staff dedicated to Inflammation and Rheumatology Research with the scope of helping delivering an exciting Research Programme in the field of Spondylarthritis (SpA), funded jointly by the Ceschina Foundation.

The post-holder will be expected to undertake clinical programmed activities on behalf of the Trust, (the number, timing and nature of these may be negotiated), but the majority of the post will relate to research linked to the MATURA programme. Applicants should have an undergraduate medical degree and postgraduate degree and/or relevant professional qualification and/or equivalent professional experience at SpR level. 

About the Centre
The Centre for Experimental Medicine & Rheumatology (EMR) was established in May 2007 and is led by Professor Costantino Pitzalis. EMR rapidly became a leading national and international rheumatology centre of excellence. In 2012 it was awarded the status of Arthritis Research UK Experimental Arthritis Treatment Centre. The Centre is focused on the development of innovative therapeutic and diagnostic approaches to inflammatory and degenerative arthropathies, particularly rheumatoid and osteo arthritis, with emphasis on translational research.
