This is an exceptional opportunity for a new appointment for a Clinical Research Fellow in Gynaecological Medical Oncology at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. We seek an ambitious, innovative individual to provide medical support to the consultants by primarily acting as co-investigator on a panel of investigator-initiated, molecularly targeted, phase II clinical trials.
