Anatomy Demonstrator/Clinical Fellow (Core) in
ENT (3 posts), Plastic Surgery (2 posts) Trauma & Orthopaedics (2 posts), Urology (2 posts), and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (1 post)

Applications are invited for the joint role of Anatomy Demonstrator and Clinical Fellow (Core) working with the University of Cambridge Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience (PDN) and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH).  These posts are available to commence on 07 August 2019 for a period of 12 months to 05 August 2020.

Post holders will take part in a dissecting-room teaching programme of Topographical Anatomy for Preclinical Medical Students and will be attached to one of CUH’s surgical departments.  All post holders will participate in the full shift rota of their surgical department providing long day and night cover only during University term time. In addition, when not in the Department of Anatomy (outside of term time) you will be expected to participate in the daytime commitments of the clinical service including theatre lists, clinics, and ward cover. The clinical commitments will vary between the specialties and be appropriate for the clinical area you are attached to. 

It is anticipated that these posts will allow the successful candidate to acquire many of the essential and desirable criteria for national specialty selection. The posts do not carry Postgraduate Dean’s approval of training recognition but offer the opportunity to gain teaching experience in a supervised environment, receive teaching from experienced senior staff, produce anatomical prosections and participate in research projects.

Applicants must have achieved their Foundation Competencies or equivalent and must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).

Whilst the recruitment process for this post is managed by the University of Cambridge the contracts of employment for these posts will be held by Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. 

Enquiries regarding the Anatomy teaching should be addressed to the University Clinical Anatomists: Dr Cecilia Brassett ( and Dr Helen Taylor ( For enquiries regarding the clinical elements of these posts, contacts are as follows:
