The Fellow will conduct clinical research by deep phenotyping of patients with diabetic polyneuropathy, under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Rice (Professor of Pain Research, Imperial College).
The post is funded by the European Commission (Horizon 2020-PHC1-2014) as part of the major multicentre project DOLORisk: Understanding risk factors and determinants for neuropathic pain. DOLORisk is led by Prof. David Bennett (Professor of Neurology and Neurobiology, Oxford University) and involves active collaboration with world leading neurology, genetics, psychology and primary care academic units in Oxford and Dundee and also in Sweden, Denmark, Israel, Germany, Belgium and France.
The role includes recruitment, assessment and deep profiling of diabetic patients for features of peripheral polyneuropathy. The Fellow will be trained in cutting edge symptom, quantitative sensory, electrophysiological and psychological profiling techniques. The Fellow will be required to archive and analyse data and to process samples for genotyping. A high level of interaction with those involved in the genetics aspects of DOLORisk is required.
You should be medically qualified and have full GMC registration (or eligibility for such). It is essential that you are confident and skilled in practical clinical procedures.

You should have good written and verbal communication skills, analytical and problem solving abilities and have proven ability to manage projects, work to deadlines and collaborate with others. Research experience and a record of peer reviewed publications are highly desirable, but not essential.
