Job Title

Clinical Research Training Fellow in Clinical Oncology

Job description

The Department of Oncology has an opportunity for a Clinical Research Fellow to join the Advanced Radiation Oncology Group, headed by Dr Maria Hawkins.
The group works on improving radiotherapy techniques with an aim to maximise outcomes and minimise toxicities in solid malignancies (focusing on gastro-intestinal and thorax systems). The research aims to explore “smart” solutions for translational radiotherapy using advances in radiotherapy technology to deliver either targeted ablative or adapted modulated radiation. The group works closely with research medical physics groups and is translated in clinic at Oxford University Hospitals.
This funded three-year position provides the opportunity for a senior clinical trainee to work towards a DPhil, in a high calibre research environment. The principal aim is to investigate the potential benefits of MRI-linac for delivery of Stereotactic ablative Radiotherapy RT (SBRT) in upper gastrointestinal malignancies.

This is a full-time post, offered for three years in the first instance.


You will have a medical degree and will be a GMC registered Medical Practitioner (or eligible for registration), with clinical experience in radiotherapy. You will also have evidence of adequate clinical oncological experience and familiarity with radiotherapy planning technology and interpretation of radiotherapy plans.
