Clinical Professor of Medicine
The best things come through collaboration. At least, that’s what we believe at the Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (SaSH). Working alongside our colleagues in The Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine in the School of Biosciences, we are pushing the boundaries of modern medicine, seeking to enhance the wellbeing of elderly people in the region. And that’s precisely what you’ll be doing in this innovative role, splitting your time between clinical duties at East Surrey Hospital and academic duties at the University of Surrey.
Taking responsibility for a team of academic and research staff, your innovative approach to caring for ageing people will ensure our work on geriatric care continues to thrive. With our expertise particularly focussed on areas such as infectious diseases, nutrition, diabetes, obesity, cancer, sleep, biological rhythms and systems biology, you will support the care of elderly people and lead ongoing research programmes with your own extensive knowledge of stroke medicine, diabetes, musculoskeletal disease, elderly care or mental health. With an overarching focus on improving the health of an ageing population, you will also contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and you will shape the future of our elderly care provisions.
To make the most of this enticing position, you will ideally be a trialist or will have an interest in pragmatic trials. Passionate about conducting and supporting research, you will have experience of epidemiology or evidence studies. As a professorial role that is accompanied by a PhD studentship, you will be confident juggling the two elements, balancing a varied workload and ensuring every patient receives the level of care they deserve. Clinically qualified, you will have experience of attracting and securing research funding, and you will have fantastic communication and people management skills.
This unique role is perfect for someone who is keen to share their wealth of knowledge on chronic disease and ageing while remaining directly involved in improving the wellbeing of the local community. Our team is diverse, dynamic and friendly, and we are keen to recruit someone who shares our commitment to high standards.
