Overview

Clinical Engineering, Innovation and Research (CEIR) is looking to recruit to the following role: Research Assistants Band 5 Applications for the research posts are invited from individuals with substantial experience in Clinical Engineering and Technology.

Clinical Engineering, Innovation and Research (CEIR) is a new development which sees the creation of a new team of in-house engineers, scientists, and researchers with a common goal of translating innovative medical technologies into patient benefits.

The team will span Clinical Engineering and R&D providing a multi-disciplinary, cross-sector team combining capabilities in engineering, technology and innovation with strong links to HEIs :

• a single point of access for local manufacturers to the health board, supporting the development of health technologies that result in health gains, while contributing to regional wealth.

• a capability to compete with other new device and technology research centres to secure prestigious grants and enable an efficient response to external companies looking to CE mark their products in advance of commercialisation.

• an internal consultancy service able to identify areas where the UHB could optimise it’s practices through embracing new technologies, including a credible team able to work with clinical staff to develop concepts and translate these into innovative medical technologies and processes to benefit patients, staff and the wider health economy.

• a team with the skills and technical experience to manage the end-to-end innovation pathway – from identifying needs and solutions, through design and prototyping the concepts, testing and clinical testing as well as IP advice and implementation, working with University partners, pooling knowledge, expertise, and resources.

The emphasis of these posts is to ensure the provision and development of high-quality technology related research within the health board area. Applicants will be able to demonstrate considerable relevant experience in the clinical engineering / technology setting. You will be working for an organisation that values and respects all of its staff and the community it serves.

The Health Board is a leader within the NHS and research sectors and provides excellent benefits for its staff. This includes commitments to professional development but also many policies to support employees in balancing their personal and professional lives. N.B. the successful individuals may be required to go on secondment but still be based at the health board in the first year to strengthen the relationship with regional university partners.
