Clinical Senior Lecturer (holding Honorary Consultant) in PET Imaging

King's College London

This is an academic post linked to the research programme of Professor Sally Barrington, recently appointed as National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Professor. Professor Barrington's research is focused on the use of PET-guided therapy to improve the effectiveness of cancer treatment with fewer side-effects. 

Duties will include academic, clinical and teaching work. 

The post-holder will support and work with Professor Barrington and her group, undertaking clinical trials that will test how chemotherapy and radiotherapy can be tailored, using PET, to evaluate an individual patient's risk and response, in several cancer types. Ways to maximise the benefits of modern radiotherapy techniques, using advanced imaging, will be developed and translated. Methods to improve the reliability of PET reading and inform how PET can monitor new drugs that target the immune system will be assessed. 

The candidate will have opportunities to grow their own research interests and by the end of the 5-year award will be expected to have developed independent high-quality research, as demonstrated by high-impact publications and funds raised through peer-reviewed grant applications. The post-holder will take an active part in teaching the relevant undergraduate/postgraduate programmes in the PET Centre, the Division and the Faculty. 

The post will be based in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences at the St Thomas’ Campus of Kings College London. Clinical duties will take place at the PET Imaging centres at St Thomas’ Hospital and Guys Cancer. 

The selection process will include competency based questions, a presentation and a panel interview. Interviews are scheduled to be held on 20th December 2017. 

The salary will be paid at the Clinical Consultant Grade, £76,761 to £97,787 per annum, plus £2,162 per annum London Allowance. 

This post will be based on a fulltime, indefinite contract.
