Vacancy Information
UCL and the Wellington Hospital are recruiting to a Fellowship scheme in which Fellows study for a PhD in the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science while working at the UK's largest private hospital providing specialist complex care.

Fellows register part-time at UCL and the Wellington pays the annual fees which will include a generous allowance for consumables and activities. In return the Fellows are employed directly by the Hospital, working the equivalent of 30 hours per week, which will include a combination of weekdays, weekends and bank holidays. Salary will be £45,000 per annum.

Studentship Description
Fellows will select a project and a supervisor from across the range of disciplines in the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science: pre-clinical and fundamental science, translational science, imaging, engineering, clinical science, data science, experimental medicine and population science projects are all offered.  The Institute also hosts the MRC Unit of Lifelong Health and Ageing, the Hatter Cardiovascular Centre, as well as the British Heart Foundation UCL Research Accelerator (joint with UCL Institute of Health Informatics).

Clinically based at the Wellington Hospital in St John's Wood London, part of HCA Healthcare UK, the Fellows will commence a programme for clinically qualified individuals who wish to undertake a period of basic and/or clinical cardiovascular research prior to continuing with specialist training.  This is a tremendous opportunity to jointly develop a research career while working between two prestigious organisations.

Fellows will have common activities such as journal clubs, relevant training and development and will undertake UCL's Arena One programme to help them deliver teaching on the Institute's Cardiometabolic Patient Pathway, as well as being part of the Institute's other networks of postgraduate students and staff.
