Role Summary

The post provides an outstanding opportunity for academic training in basic science, translational, clinical or health services research in parallel with clinical training and experience in teaching.  Academic training, research and supervision at the University of Birmingham will be adapted to the requirements of the successful applicant.  The clinical training will be delivered within the West Midlands Deanery, according to national standards.

The successful candidate will be appointed to the academic gastroenterology and hepatology training scheme. Clinical placement will be divided between the Gastroenterology and Liver Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. During the Gastroenterology placement there will be exposure to general medicine and acute medical takes. During the placement on the Liver Unit the candidate will participate in ward work, clinics as well as the on-call rota. Clinical contribution will be on a 0.5 WTE basis. Academic placement will be in the Centre for Liver and Gastrointestinal Research which is directed by Professor Newsome. The lecturer will be expected to develop research interests in line with those of the Centre, with a view to applying for fellowship funding.

A 50:50 split between research and clinical training will involve protected time for the academic element, with the two components integrated throughout the training period.  The trainee will revert to a clinical training post at the end of the ACL post if this is required to complete acquisition of clinical competencies for the CCT. The duration of clinical training time will be determined during the first ‘trajectory-setting’ year and at annual reviews of competence progression (ARCP).

The post-holders have responsibilities, which include the care of inpatients and outpatients with general medical and gastrointestinal or liver problems and which from time to time include teaching of introductory course students, final year students and postgraduate students and co-ordination of undergraduate medical examinations at the training hospital. 

The appointee is encouraged to develop a programme of discovery and/or translational research in line with current areas of interest in the unit. Special areas of research interest include inflammatory liver and bowel disease, cellular therapy, immunology and stromal cell biology, gut microbiome/ faecal transplantation and hepatocellular cancer.  Another major area of interest is non-alcoholic fatty liver disease with strength in pre-clinical and clinical phases. The successful candidate would work closely within the recently renewed £30.7M NIHR Biomedical Research Centre hosted in Birmingham which supports world-leading translational research.
