Applications are invited for a Clinical Research Fellow in haematology and immuno-oncology, in the Department for Health at the University of Bath and the Department of Haematology at Bath Royal United Hospitals NHS Trust. This role is on a full time, fixed term basis of at least 10 months, with the intention of acquiring further research funding to extend the duration of the fixed term position.

The post-holder will be responsible for furthering research capabilities between the University of Bath and the Department for Haematology at the Royal United Hospitals NHS Trust. Specifically, the post-holder will develop a novel line of research in haematology and immuno-oncology, with a focus on the blood cancers chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and multiple myeloma.

Our research is organised around three themes: Lifelong Health and Wellbeing, Improving Human Function, and a Fair and Vibrant Society. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF2014), we returned staff across three Units of Assessment, ranking 5th (Sport & Exercise Science) and 6th (Allied Health Professions), with ~90% of our outputs rated as world-leading or internationally excellent (i.e. 3-4*).

We teach across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes related to health, exercise and sport. The University of Bath was named Sports University of the Year 2018, and our Sport & Exercise Science programme in the Department for Health is consistently rated very highly in national and international rankings, for example it was ranked 7th globally by QS (2021).
