Clinical Senior Lecturer in Cardiothoracic Critical Care

Imperial College London has an opening lecturer position. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. Applicants should apply before 09/09/2018.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the appointment of a Clinical Senior Lecturer in Cardiothoracic Critical Care. This post is full time and open ended within the Section of Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care (APMIC) at Imperial College London, and clinical time will be based at the Royal Brompton and Harefield (RBH) NHS Trust with an honorary consultant contract.

This post is part of a new academic initiative, 'Fulham Road Alliance in Perioperative & Critical Care', which will transform clinical translational research in anaesthesia/critical care between the two Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC) partners, i.e. APMIC of Imperial College London at Chelsea & Westminster (C&W) and RBH NHS Trust.

This new Clinical Senior Lecturer appointment will utilise this exciting opportunity, aiming to build a new academic research unit based on this world-leading RBH clinical service in cardio-respiratory medicine. With the back-up of the well-established strong basic science within APMIC at C&W (which is only 10 min away from RBH), the post will provide the core infrastructure for 'clinical translational research' at the RBH campus in the area of cardio-respiratory perioperative and critical care, to help translate from the bench to the bedside and further raise the profile of anaesthesia/critical care research at Imperial. Most importantly, the post will enable the development of novel streams of research, in particular in the cutting-edge/hot-topic clinical areas, e.g. specialised severe acute respiratory and cardiac failure, extracorporeal life support technologies, and heart and lung transplantation.

The new Clinical Senior Lecturer will also play a significant role in leading basic science experiments in acute lung injury research, within the in vivo lab facilities of APMIC. By utilising his/her expertise in this UK-leading clinical service in the area of cardio-respiratory perioperative and critical care, the post holder will provide crucial insights from the bedside to the bench direction to further enhance the basic science activities within APMIC. All members of clinical academic staff are expected to be active and highly respected in clinical practice, in research, publishing papers in leading journals, attending conferences, teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate taught course students, supervising research students and obtaining funding to support their students and research activities. The appointees will be expected to have a proven record in such activities. Teaching and research are considered an integral part of the post. These posts will involve the usual administrative duties associated with a busy academic and research-active environment and the appointees will be expected to enhance the academic standing of the Department of Surgery and Cancer.

The successful candidate will have a higher degree, MD, MS, PhD or equivalent and full GMC and CCT. This appointment is subject to a satisfactory enhanced level Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosure.
