NES Clinical Lecturer

University of Glasgow - RI Cancer Sciences

Job Purpose

This is a fixed term (6 years) Clinical Lectureship tenable within academic Urology.

Eligible applicants should have completed general professional training. If a period of full time research has taken place, the candidate would then be expected to have achieved a higher degree (MD or PhD) or be in the process of submission. The successful candidate will continue to train in the West of Scotland Higher Specialty Training Programme in Urology. Applicants must already have a national training number in Urology at the time of taking up the post.

The post will be based within the Academic Unit of Urology, and other units/departments within the region as recommended by the Training Programme Director and the training committee. The laboratory and translational research activities of the successful candidate will be expected to be based within the Urology Research Group, CR-UK Beatson Institute.

Clinical training will be a major (80%) focus of the Lectureship in order to ensure the appointee can successfully complete his/her CCT.

The appointee will develop a research group in translational research within the Unit, under the mentorship and supervision of Professor Leung as well as with the support of senior clinical and non clinical academics in the Institute of Cancer Sciences.

Standard Terms & Conditions

The post will carry an additional entitlement depending on "on-call" responsibilities. This banding payment is paid under a separate arrangement with the NHS for which the University acts as paymaster only.

This is a fixed term (up to 6 years) Clinical Lectureship tenable in the Institute of Cancer Sciences and will end within 6 years or within 6 months of completion of CCT, whichever comes sooner. This post is justifiably fixed-term, as a training post, under the Fixed-term Employees (prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2002.

An honorary contract at Specialist/Specialty Registrar level will be applied for to the NHS.

Relocation assistance may be provided where appropriate.
