Are you a cardiology trainee interested in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR)? Are you interested in structural/valvular heart disease? Would you like to undertake a period of study towards an MD/PhD involving CMR in valvular heart disease? 
 
Our department has a growing track record in the evaluation of structural heart disease, particularly aortic and mitral valve disease.  This work has been supported by the British Heart Foundation and involves a number of collaborative projects in the UK and Denmark.  Being one of the largest UK centres for structural heart disease intervention (transcatheter techniques for Aortic, Mitral and Tricuspid valve Implantation/repair) we have an excellent opportunity to evaluate percutaneous and surgical techniques using CMR to assess the comparative outcomes based on imaging parameters and patient reported outcome measures (e.g. functional status from detailed neurocognitive assessments and quality of life questionnaires). We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and capable clinical fellow who would like to undertake a period of research involving this patient group.
 
The University of Leeds is committed to providing equal opportunities for all and offers a range of family friendly policies. The University is a charter member of Athena SWAN and holds the Bronze award. The School of Medicine gained the Silver award in 2016.We are committed to being an inclusive medical school that values all staff, and we are happy to consider job share applications and requests for flexible working arrangements from our employees.
