CSG 7: NIHR CRN: Children/BSPED diabetes and endocrinology

The NIHR CRN: Children/BSPED Children’s Diabetes Clinical Studies Group (CSG) is recruiting a Chair.

Do you want to play a leading role in shaping the future of paediatric diabetes care? If so, we want to hear from you.

The children’s diabetes CSG is looking for a Chair to lead their work. You would have the chance to:

• Lead on identifying research gaps and priorities, both within the CSG and in collaboration with external stakeholders.

• Support and facilitate the development of new study proposals.

• Monitor the progress of the CSG, collaborate and report to Chairs across the CSGs, and work closely with Diabetes UK.

To apply, please send your CV and a supporting statement to the Diabetes UK Research Team at csgs@diabetes.org.uk, or get in touch for further information. Please see details here. Please note this is a voluntary role. The closing date for applications is 31 January 2020. Interviews will take place in first half of 2020.

We’re looking for someone who:

• has strong leadership skills and is an excellent communicator

• has relevant clinical expertise and academic excellence

• is committed involving parents of children with diabetes and young people

• has previous experience of chairing meetings effectively

• has a track record of promoting research collaboration

• is enthusiastic and committed to translating research into benefit

• is committed to confidentiality and willing to declare any conflicts of interest.

The membership term is three years, with the potential to extend for a further three. The Chair positions are undertaken on a voluntary basis. The CSG will be provided with financial support for two face to face meetings and at least one teleconference per year.

CSG 7 aims to improve our understanding of diabetes in children and young adults. This is a joint CSG with the British Society for Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes (BSPED) and the National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR CRN). It will consider all aspects of diabetes in children and young adults.
