Clinical Senior Lecturer (Honorary Consultant) in Paediatric Neurodisability

Perinatal Imaging & Health

The salary will be paid on the CCCB scale; £76,001 - £96,819 per annum plus £2,162 per annum London Allowance.

This post will be based on a full time, indefinite contract

We are seeking a Clinical Senior Lecturer (Honorary Consultant) in Paediatric Neurodisability to join the Department of Perinatal Imaging & Health and Centre for the Developing Brain at King’s College London.

The Department and Centre are focussed on understanding the causes and consequences of damage to the immature brain and on devising strategies to reduce the level of neurodevelopmental impairment initiated in the perinatal period. Using experimental laboratory methods, robotics, and magnetic resonance imaging techniques, the team integrates data from fetal, early postnatal and post-mortem scanning with information on neurological function as the children develop. There is a strong emphasis on neuroinformatics and bioinformatics and the development of novel imaging strategies, with research programmes focusing on prematurity, asphyxia brain injury and neurocognitive conditions.

Children’s Services at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ are strong, distinctive and growing. GSTFT provides secondary acute services to the local area and an almost comprehensive portfolio of tertiary services to South London and South East England. As a specialist paediatric hospital, the Evelina London Children’s Hospital (ELCH) is unique in having this broad scope of secondary and tertiary paediatric specialities co-located on the same site as maternity and A&E, as well as equivalent adult services for transition.

The postholder will be expected to develop and lead a programme of high-quality research into brain development and brain damage in the newborn period, as demonstrated by high-impact publications and funds raised through peer-reviewed grant applications. It is expected that MR imaging, bioengineering and robotics will be the significant component of this research. The postholder will have a specific role of linking the research activity of the Centre for the Developing Brain with the Paediatric Neurosciences department. They will also take an active part in teaching the relevant undergraduate/postgraduate programmes in the Division and the Faculty, with a focus on Neonatology, Imaging and Paediatrics.

The selection process will include competency based questions, a presentation, and a panel interview.

Interviews will be held on 11th May 2017.
