Medical students, clinicians and academics from the UK and abroad, to support a large body of work related to developing a new treatment for patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). You must be a student based in King's College London.


I am currently undertaking a significant body of work related to the field of respiratory and sleep medicine. Our team at St Thomas' Hospital, London, are investigating the use of electrical stimulation as an alternative treatment to CPAP in patients with OSA.

Our research centre is based in the Lane Fox Respiratory Unit/ Sleep Disorder's Centre, working collaboratively with King's College London. We are looking for students, doctors and co-collaborators who are keen to develop skills in research and academia, but contributing to the aforementioned studies.

Please note, the role will require EVENING studies from 6pm to 10pm on a Monday to Wednesday..


You will learn a vast array of skills related to research, analysis, physiological data interpretation and ultrasonography skills of the upper airway; as well as being involved in a key randomised controlled trial.
