King’s College London is one of the top 25 universities in the world (2018 QS World University Rankings) and the fourth oldest university in England. A research-led university based in the heart of London, it has over 30,000 students from nearly 150 countries, and more than 8,000 employees.

King’s College London, the Evelina London Children’s Hospital and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust within King’s Health Partners (KHP), have a shared vision to develop a world-leading contribution to child health through outstanding research, education and clinical expertise. To achieve this ambition we are now recruiting for a Professor of Child Health with the potential to take on a broader leadership role in the future within the Institute of Women and Children’s Health.

The successful candidate will provide academic leadership for the School of Life Course Sciences, housed in the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, as well as work across the Evelina London Children’s Hospital and KHP’s
newly established Institute of Women and Children’s Health. Our intention is to create a centre of international excellence in children’s health alongside existing research strengths. It is expected that the candidate will undertake clinical duties related to their area of clinical and research expertise through an honorary consultant contract with the Evelina London Children’s Hospital/Guys and St Thomas’ and/or King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts as appropriate.

This is an exciting opportunity to work across the clinical and academic environments, and with an interest in the planned Institute of Women & Children’s Health, play a future critical role in shaping clinical and academic
strategy, and delivering internationally competitive outcomes. Following the establishment of this Institute and once the Professor is established within King’s, there will be an opportunity to become Director of the Institute. The successful candidate will be a world-class researcher, and act as a role-model and mentor to colleagues. Promoting active engagement and collaborations across the King’s faculties, NHS partners and representing the Institute and KHP externally will also be essential.
