Significant Expansion in Norwich

10 Clinical Senior Lecturer Posts in Translational and Clinical Medicine jointly funded by Norwich Medical School (MED) and Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals (NNUH) NHS Trust.

Salary Scale: Clinical Academic for staff holding NHS honorary consultant contracts.

We are seeking to appoint ten clinical academic posts. Each appointee will expand our burgeoning research themes, contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate education, and strengthen the clinical-academic base and the collaboration between MED and NNUH through an honorary NHS consultant appointment. 

We anticipate appointing at the Clinical Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) level. Successful candidates will be expected to develop and lead a programme of translational and/or clinical research in one of the following priority areas:

Bioinformatics; Cancer; Cardiovascular and cardio-metabolic science; Degenerative disease, Endocrinology and diabetology; Epidemiology and public health/health services research; Gastroenterology (medical and surgical); Haematology; Histopathology; Medical microbiology/infectious diseases; Mental illness including neurodegeneration; Musculoskeletal disease; Neurology; Nutritional biochemistry; Radiology; and Respiratory disease.

Matched NHS funding (50%) exists to support clinical work in the following disciplines:

Dermatology; Diabetes and Endocrinology; Gastroenterology: Nutrition; General Surgery: Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery and Colorectal Surgery; Gynaecology: Oncology; Haematology; Histopathology; Nephrology; Neurology: Behavioural Neurology; Obstetrics; Older Peoples Medicine; Ophthalmology; Paediatrics/Neonatology; Plastic Surgery: Melanoma; Radiology; Respiratory Medicine; and Urology.

Successful applicants will be expected to carry out independent, high quality, externally funded research, aimed at improving our understanding of medical science and its translation into public health and/or clinical benefit.  We aim to recruit excellent clinicians who will play an active part in their respective departments, complementing the comprehensive service provision that already exists across the Trust.  Successful applicants will be expected to contribute fully to the activities of the hospital through their NHS Honorary Consultant appointments. 

Applicants will be considered primarily on the basis of personal excellence, but it is essential that their research direction accords with the research needs of the Medical School AND that they have clinical skills in one of the areas for which matched NHS funding exists.

Norwich Medical School at the University of East Anglia was formed in 2001 and has an excellent reputation for its teaching and student experience.  The research base is steadily growing with strong roots in medical microbiology, nutrition, public health and major recent investments in gastroenterology and dementia research.  The number of non-clinical academic posts is also showing steady growth.

NNUH is a busy 1100 bed teaching hospital providing for a catchment area of around 800,000. It has an excellent clinical reputation and has a research portfolio of some 360 current studies.

UEA and NNUH benefit from being core parts of the Norwich Research Park (NRP), which includes three BBSRC-funded research institutes: the Institute of Food Research (IFR), the John Innes Centre, and the Earlham Institute.  The close proximity of our NRP partners facilitates close working relationships and cross-fertilisation of research ideas, exemplified by the creation of the £85m multidisciplinary Quadram Institute Building due to open in June 2018 which will incorporate IFR, MED and NNUH activities.

Applicants should have MRCP(UK)/MRCPath/FRCR/FRCS and a PhD, or the international equivalents, and have obtained a Certificate of Completion of Training or be within six months of acquiring it. Appointees will be employed by UEA with a joint honorary NHS contract.

These appointments will be subject to an enhanced criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
