Research Physician

Richmond Pharmacology is an innovative, dynamic and adaptive Contract Research Organisation (CRO) based in London Bridge, conducting clinical research on behalf of clients in the pharmaceutical industry.

We have an opportunity for a knowledgeable and ambitious GMC registered doctor to make a noticeable impact within a world-renowned clinical research organisation working with a varied group of international biotechnology and pharmaceutical clients.

Our doctors work across a range of clinical trials involving both healthy and patient volunteers. The team of doctors contribute to original research, developing a skill set that includes protocol development and data analysis and reporting. Through this multi-faceted role and the training provided, our doctors are given the opportunity to present at national and international meetings, allowing them to build their research toolkit.

As a Research Physician you will join a close-knit team, headed by our Medical Director who is a Fellow both of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine and of the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Specific clinical training will be provided from the outset of your employment and ongoing training is offered throughout your time at Richmond Pharmacology.

Candidates are offered the opportunity to register with the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine and complete PMST (Our Principal Investigators are both registered educational supervisors and take an active role in your training), funded by Richmond Pharmacology. There are also options to obtain post graduate qualifications including an MSc and a PhD in clinical pharmacology.

You will be based in our central London, state-of-the-art facility, at a clinical site that has been synonymous with cutting edge clinical research for over 30 years. In the last few years our facility has undergone a £5 million redevelopment ensuring the facility matches the excellence of our teams.


We are looking for a doctor with good clinical skills and the capacity to apply sound clinical knowledge and judgement. Your previous training should include at least 2 years post Foundation Training experience, or experience working as a Specialty Registrar.

In return, we offer a competitive remuneration package, including matching pension contributions (5%), life assurance (3x salary), private single medical and dental insurance and a generous holiday allowance, starting at 25 days, excluding bank holidays, increasing by 1 day per annum, up to a maximum of 30 days.


Please provide both a CV and a covering letter, including your availability, suitability for the post, and eligibility to work in the UK.
