Purpose of the Role

Clinical research is essential to provide an evidence base for improved medicines and treatment of sick children. It is well accepted internationally that hospitals active in research and innovation are associated with better outcomes for patients and better recruitment and retention of staff. As Ireland’s largest paediatric hospital and the leading centre in Ireland for the conduct of clinical trials and studies in children and young adults, CHI has placed excellence in research and innovation as one of its key strategic objectives.

As part of ongoing development at CHI towards the opening of the new Children’s Hospital, a rationalisation and integration of the existing clinical research infrastructure across all sites is being undertaken. Under the leadership of the CHI Director of Research & Innovation, a new Research & Innovation Office (RIO) and Clinical Research Centre (CRC) are being set-up within CHI and will bring all aspects of clinical research infrastructure together under a single governance and management structure. The Clinical Research Centre is the forerunner of the new paediatric Clinical Research Facility (CRF) that will be embedded in the new Children’s Hospital. The CRC is made up of a team of research staff working across CHI sites to support clinical teams in the conduct of clinical trials and other clinical research studies that require specialist expertise and support.

Essential Criteria:

  • Be registered in the Children’s division of the Register of Nurses & Midwives maintained by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) Or Be registered in the General Division of the active register held by NMBI and have relevant children’s nursing experience.

  • At least 2 years of relevant experience in clinical research in a healthcare or academic environment or the biomedical or pharmaceutical industry.
  • Have the clinical, managerial and administrative capacity to properly discharge the functions of the role
  • Demonstrate evidence of continuing professional development at the appropriate level.
