Fixed Term Contract for up to 4 Years or the award of a CCT in Public Health. The successful candidate must be in post by 31st March 2018.

This NIHR funded post has been awarded to work between the University of Warwick and Public Health England. The preferred theme of the research is the application of genomic technologies in infectious disease epidemiology research. Candidates meeting all of the essential criteria but with a different area of public health research should contact Noel McCarthy to discuss and could also be considered if this can fit to University of Warwick and Public Health England areas of interest (

The Clinical Lecturer is expected to be based at the Communicable Disease Control Evidence and Epidemiology (CDCEE) unit, a joint Public Health England -University of Warwick initiative established as a national resource to support work at the interface of research and practice in infectious disease public health. This is led by Prof Noel McCarthy who also oversees the academic clinical trainees in public health at the university and will act as educational supervisor to a public health specialty appointee to this post. West Midlands includes a co-located PHE Centre Health Protection Team covering a large West Midlands population and a Field Epidemiology Service team, including Prof Jeremy Hawker who will supervise clinical public health work in infectious diseases. The post-holder will be fully integrated within the Health Education England West Midlands training structures to support areas of training required for CCT outside health protection and will be supported in pursuing national Public Health England opportunities.

Dr Tom Fowler, acting head of public health at Genomics England will provide additional advice and support to the trainee and opportunities to collaborate on national policy and research work through Genomics England.

Within the standard 50/50 academic clinical split clinical training will be offered based on the generic training needs of the clinical lecturer to achieve the breadth of public health competencies complemented by clinical work in the proposed research area allowing the development of a clinician working at the interface of service and academic public health. Clinical lecturers at Warwick are also supported to complete a qualification in teaching in higher education to ensure competitiveness in this aspect of senior lecturer career requirements.
