Applications are invited for a Consultant Virologist post in a large teaching hospital Trust. The successful applicant will join an established experienced colleague in delivering a clinical and diagnostic virology service to UHL and General Practitioners. These posts provide clinical virology support to a large number of immunocompromised patients and work closely with colleagues in a wide variety of disciplines including paediatrics, obstetrics, neonatology, foetal medicine, infectious diseases, genitourinary medicine, haematology and nephrology.

The well-equipped department is fully accredited.   At present the department is part of Empath which is a joint pathology partnership between UHL and Nottingham University Hospitals. 

There will be significant opportunity for change and development to the current virology service to bring more benefits to patients, as well as teaching and research. In particular, R&D-related activities will be strongly encouraged and supported by the current clinical virology lead.

This post would be suitable for either a medical virologist (virology or infectious disease/virology trainee) or an appropriately qualified Clinical Scientist. All applicants should have FRCPath (or evidence of equivalent training and experience) and should have either full GMC registration and should be eligible for entry on the Specialist Register within 6 months of the interview date or for Clinical Scientists be registered with the HCPC .

You are expected to participate in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching (including supervision, training, assessment and appraisal of specialist registrars, clinical scientists, and trainee healthcare scientists), clinical audit, research and development. You will also be required to undertake management duties and work within a multidisciplinary team.

The University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust consists of three acute teaching hospitals serving the population of Leicestershire, and is fully committed to Continuing Medical Education for Consultants.

The appointment is whole time. Any consultant who is unable for personal reasons, to work whole time, will be eligible to be considered for the post. If such a person is appointed, modification of the job content will be discussed on a personal basis in consultation with consultant colleagues.

As this post is regulated by the Protection of Children Act 1999, The Criminal Justice Courts Act 2000 and / or the Care Standards Act 2000, an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Scheme check will be requested by the Trust in the event of a successful application.
