Clinical Lecturer in Diabetes

University of Sheffield - Department of Oncology and Metabolism

Contract Type: Fixed-term for 2 years in the first instance
Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health


This new post has been created as part of an initiative to build the academic presence of diabetes and offer candidates a programme of Integrated Academic Training and a comprehensive experience of clinical academic medicine working alongside internationally renowned clinicians and researchers.

This post would be ideally suited to an individual who has completed an externally funded Fellowship leading to an MD/PhD and is seeking a period of continued research, teaching and clinical activity as a basis for an academic career. Thus, applicants should demonstrate evidence of academic achievement and to have successfully completed a PhD/MD. They will also be eligible to hold an NTN or may already hold an NTN, having undertaken some training at Specialist Registrar level or equivalent. The post holder will spend 50% of their time in clinical training and 50% undertaking research and academic training with half the working week spent on each.  

Where the research experience is needed to contribute towards CCT, LETB guidance states that time spent out of a speciality training programme for research purposes will be recognised towards the award of a CCT when the approved Curriculum includes such research as an optional element. Applications to recognise the experience will be made where appropriate, with the support of the Training Director in Diabetes and Endocrinology. 

Research activity is supported by state of the art molecular biology laboratories, dedicated clinical research facilities and access to the latest imaging technology including MR, NMR and PET scanning. The department is home to the Sheffield Institute for Maternal, Fetal and Neonatal Imaging (SIMFANI). The main areas of musculoskeletal research are in osteoporosis, childhood bone disease, inflammatory arthritis and bone oncology and the Mellanby Centre for Bone Research is located within the department. Reproductive research is in fertility, andrology and the department hosts one of the most successful Assisted Conception Units in the country, with facilities for human embryonic stem cell derivation. The Diabetes Group has a focus on hypoglycaemia, neuropathy and diabetic education. The Endocrinology Group has expertise in pituitary and autoimmune thyroid disease with research programmes directed at optimising endocrine replacement therapy. The Clinical Pharmacology Unit has extensive expertise in pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modelling, human drug metabolism and pharmacogenetics.
