Applications are invited for a Clinical Research Fellow in Emergency Medicine based at Morriston Hospital. These posts are suitable for those who have completed their professional foundation years. The job combines clinical (50%) and academic (50%) time. These jobs would be suitable for candidates who intend to seek a career in emergency medicine or other acute specialties and wish to gain further experience of patient diagnosis and management in the emergency setting. These posts will give an excellent grounding in all aspects of emergency medicine.

The posts will also be attractive and give a good introduction for those candidates who may wish to develop an academic career. The post is initially a one-year fixed-term contract. The posts would also be suitable for candidates who wish to progress to a higher degree and suitable adjustments can be made based on individuals experience and requirements.
