Clinical Lecturer in Plastic Surgery

University of Glasgow - School of Medicine, Dentistry & Nursing

Location: Glasgow
Salary: £35,351 to £61,211
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 13th September 2021
Closes: 12th October 2021
Job Ref: 066114

We have an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Lectureship in Plastic Surgery in the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing with affiliation to the Institute of Molecular Cell and Systems Biology. This is a fixed term (up to 4 years or up until six months after obtaining CCT). Suitable applicants will hold MRCS (UK)/or equivalent and will have completed general professional training in Medicine. You will have an established interest in research with a record of achievement in an area relevant to existing interests in the Institute of Molecular Cell & Systems Biology within the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, developing cross-cutting work between the 3-I’s and the Centre for the Cellular Microenvironment.   The successful candidate will be appointed at the appropriate level of Specialty Registrar and will enter the Scottish Plastic Surgery Training Programme.

The successful candidate must already have a national training number at the time of taking up the post.  It is expected that the successful candidate will already hold a higher research degree (MD/ PhD), but in exceptional circumstances talented candidates may be appointed without this qualification, although progression would be dependent upon them successfully recruiting external funding for a higher research degree.

The post will be based within the Institute of Molecular Cell & Systems Biology in the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences (MVLS) of the University of Glasgow, but for the purposes of clinical training, rotation to local hospital departments may be required. Research may also be undertaken on other sites.

Whilst clinical training will be a major focus of the Lectureship in order to ensure the appointee can successfully complete their certificate of completion of training (CCT) this post will provide an exceptional opportunity for combined clinical and academic training.

The post allows the trainee to combine first class clinical training in relevant clinical areas with research training in the world class academic environment of the University of Glasgow.

Training will be offered in Hand, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and subspecialist training opportunities are available within the region including complex microsurgical reconstruction of congenital, traumatic & oncological defects, including clinical and academic involvement within the Scottish National Brachial Plexus Injury Service, and the National Hand Transplant Service.
