An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 7 Research Nurse in the Centre for Restorative Neurosciences. The Centre falls within the Division of Brain Sciences and is part of the Department of Medicine at Imperial College London.

You will help support an exciting and unique traumatic brain injury (TBI) research programme at Imperial College London. Our work is in part, supported by a major research award from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) to Professor David Sharp, which funds studies of the long-term impact of TBI. This work focuses on measuring and treating axonal injury, chronic inflammation and dopamine deficiency after TBI.  Mr Mark Wilson leads research in the acute management of TBI on the Major Trauma ward, which is particularly focused on hyperacute interventions to improve outcome.

You will work closely with Professor David Sharp and Mr Mark Wilson (Neurosurgical Lead Major Trauma Centre). They will integrate with the on-going research programme, facilitating patient recruitment into studies and work closely with the academics and clinicians involved in the projects to ensure their smooth running. They will link acute patient treatment on the Major Trauma Ward at St Mary’s with long-term follow-up in other sites including the Hammersmith Hospital.

You will be a Registered Nurse, hold a degree or equivalent in a science or nursing discipline and will be able to provide evidence of ongoing professional development.
