Applications are invited for a Windeyer Clinical Fellow in Oncology. This is a fixed term appointment for 12 months. The fellowship post is based in the academic unit at Mount Vernon Hospital working with Professor P J Hoskin and Dr A Makris to whom the post holder will be accountable.
On an annual basis the fellow is recommended for appointment by the Royal Australasian College of Radiologists to allow a visiting fellow to train at Mount Vernon; the current vacancy has arisen as a result of the present incumbent reaching the end of his tenure and with no candidate from Australasia for the forthcoming year.
The post holder is expected to function as a senior member of the team supervising more junior specialist registrars in training and playing a full part in the clinical activities of the unit. The Unit specialises in urological and gynaecological malignancies, breast cancer and lymphoma with particular interests in translational research, brachytherapy and stereotactic radiotherapy. There are various opportunities for a formal research project within the current research interests of the group.
A formal training programme for specialist registrars exists within which the Windeyer fellow will be expected to play an active role together with weekly postgraduate clinical governance and audit meetings.
Mount Vernon Cancer Centre is the largest single site cancer centre in the South of England, with 20 clinical oncologists, 6 medical oncologists, 3 haematologists, 4 cancer radiologists and 3 palliative care physicians, serving 15 surrounding hospitals. Mount Vernon Cancer Centre currently has 8 Linear accelerators, 1 Cyberknife Unit, 3 CT simulators and a brachytherapy suite.
