Senior Clinical Lecturer in Neurology / Dementia

University of Sheffield - Department of Neuroscience

Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry & Health

We have an outstanding opportunity for a highly motivated clinical academic to join the Department of Neuroscience and make a contribution to the major themes of neurological research at The University of Sheffield. We are seeking a clinician scientist with the potential to strengthen the existing research teams and to develop their own high quality independent research programme in Sheffield. This new post has arisen from a joint strategic initiative between The University of Sheffield and the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (STH) to implement our clinical and research plans in relation to Neurology and dementia.

You will integrate into the Academic Neurology Unit within the Department of Neuroscience, which is one of the three constituent departments of The Medical School, and within the Clinical Academic Neurosciences Directorate at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Royal Hallamshire Hospital).

The new Senior Clinical Lecturer post represents an exciting opportunity to combine clinical work with a programme of high quality research integrated within the Department of Neuroscience. We are seeking a highly motivated person with a track record of high quality research and clinical expertise relevant to dementia care and research. The post holder will lead medical dementia research within an expanding multidisciplinary team with opportunities to collaborate with other areas of excellence including neuroimaging, neurobiology, health services and public health research and computational biology. Dementia research is a component of our recent NIHR Biomedical Research Centres award including an MRI-PET imaging facility.  

You should hold full registration with the GMC and MRCP (or equivalent), along with PhD or MD in a relevant area of Neurology research.
