Clinical Academic Fellow (General Practice) (multiple posts)

School of Medicine


Basis: Fixed term - two years, full or part time

Grade: Clinical Academic Lecturer scale up to £56,312 (Opportunities are available for additional out-of-hours work supplement)

Closing Date: 31st October 2015

A new research, teaching and medical education campus is being developed in West Cumbria. The West Cumberland Medical Education Campus (WCMEC), is an innovative collaboration between North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group(CCG) and the Samuel Lindow Foundation.

The new campus will provide unique opportunities to deliver innovative improvements in remote and rural healthcare and develop new integrated models of care for the local area. It will provide a bespoke, local facility to train West Cumbria’s clinical workforce, train and develop leading-edge doctors, medical students and physician associates and, in years to come, offer courses at undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing professional development levels.

With that in mind, we are currently looking to appoint a number of senior clinical leads and academic fellows in primary care and acute medicine, who will help develop the infrastructure for medical research, as well as carrying out clinical duties in the NHS in West Cumbria.

The Clinical Academic Fellow (General Practice) will work closely with more senior academic staff to gain experience in research design, data collection, analysis and writing for publication. Contributing to research activities within the School/Practice, you will undertake Master’s level studies either in Research or Medical Education, with opportunity to gain higher degree status. You will also contribute to teaching activities within undergraduate and postgraduate medicine, as well as performing clinical duties in a practice nominated by the University/CCG, acquiring further expertise and experience in integrated care.

Applicants must be medical graduates and have GMC registration with licence to practise, and will have completed their Foundation Training or equivalent. Ideally you will have recently completed your Specialist Training for General Practice, or will complete it soon, and have some experience of teaching, as well as conducting and/or publishing clinical or educational research.

The successful candidate will have a good working knowledge of the organisation of UK General Practice and Primary Care, complemented by the capacity for innovative and original thought, and will be motivated to deliver rigorous, high quality work. With excellent communication skills, you will be comfortable working in multidisciplinary teams and will have the ability to respond quickly and flexibly to new developments and opportunities.

The post is located in West Cumberland.
