Applications are invited for the post of Senior Lecturer in Rheumatology at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS). This post is being offered in association with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust (BSUHT) where the successful applicant will hold an honorary consultant contract. The post holder’s primary clinical base will be the Rheumatology Department at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

The successful applicant will be an accredited physician with a substantial research background in the field of Rheumatology. The post is part of the continuing academic development in clinical and basic Musculoskeletal Medicine at BSMS  and BSUHT. 

This is a major element in the developing research strategy of the School, reflecting our interest in basic immunology and inflammation and clinical trials. The school and Trust have invested heavily in the infrastructure required, and has newly-built laboratory accommodation, a fully-functional and well-staffed CRF, modern imaging sciences centre, and recently-formed CTU.  We co-host the Brighton Musculoskeletal Research Centre.  Clinically the unit provides services to a wide catchment in the region, including the provision of specialist services in gout, vasculitis and lupus, caring for the largest cohort of patients with complex multisystem rheumatic diseases in the South-East, outside London. 

The Senior Lecturer will primarily provide support for the development of our research portfolio in Musculoskeletal Medicine. Rheumatology is also a major strength within the BSMS undergraduate teaching programme, and the appointee would also be expected to be actively involved in teaching.  He/she would be expected to undertake clinical activity as an Honorary Consultant in the Trust, working primarily at the Royal Sussex County hospital.  There would also be the opportunity for an interested and appropriately-qualified candidate to prosecute a GIM, but this is not a specific requirement of the position.
