Senior Lecturer (Honorary Consultant) in Clinical Haemato-Oncology

The Brighton and Sussex Medical School - Department of Clinical Medicine

Subject to Royal College approval

Applications are invited for the post of Senior Lecturer in Haematology at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS). This post is being offered in association with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust (BSUHT) where the successful applicant will hold an honorary consultant contract. The post holder’s primary clinical base will be the Haematology Department at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

The successful applicant will be an accredited physician with a substantial research background in the field of haemato-oncology. The post is part of the continuing academic development in clinical and basic Cancer Medicine at BSMS and BSUHT. Applicants that are UK trained, must be a holder of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT), or be within six months of award of CCT by date of interview. Applicants that are non-UK trained, will be required to show evidence of equivalence to the UK CCT.

This is a major element in the developing research strategy of the School, reflecting our interest in basic and applied sciences and clinical trials. Academic haematology is led jointly by Dr Timothy Chevassut, Senior Lecturer in Haematology and Honorary Consultant, and Professor Chris Pepper, who has recently been appointed to the Chair in Cancer Research at BSMS. The School and Trust have invested heavily in the infrastructure required, including state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, a fully-functional and well-staffed CRF (CIRU), modern imaging sciences centre (CISC), and recently-formed CTU, as well as SHORE-C, an international centre of excellence in psycho-oncology. Clinically, the haematology department provides services to a wide population across east and west Sussex and works closely with Worthing Hospital as part of a broader multidisciplinary network as well as King’s and the Royal Marsden hospitals.

The Senior Lecturer will primarily provide support for the development of our research portfolio in haemato-oncology with specific focus dependent on the candidate’s expertise. Contribution to teaching in the highly successful BMBS course is also a component of this post. The post holder would be expected to undertake clinical activity as an Honorary Consultant in the Trust, working primarily at the Royal Sussex County Hospital.
