A Vacancy at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (formerly University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust).

Clinical Research Fellow in Gastroenterology (SpR level)

Applications are invited for this full time fixed term clinical research post for 12 months. Assuming satisfactory progress, the post can be extended to 24 or 36 months in total in order to obtain a higher degree (MD or PhD).

The post is ideally suited to a doctor who has completed initial core training and MRCP or their equivalents, and wishes to pursue higher postgraduate qualifications and a career in Gastroenterology. The post is supernumerary and whilst it not a designated training post, the experience gained is comparable to that of a Higher Trainee in Gastroenterology and General Medicine.

The successful applicant will be based within the University of Bristol in an established research team with an excellent track record of high profile publications and higher degree awards, but also within the Department of Gastroenterology at Bristol Royal Infirmary. It is anticipated that they will register for a higher degree.

The post will provide clinical experience at a centre of excellence in the management of patients with complex inflammatory bowel disease and intestinal failure. This will be both in an inpatient and outpatient setting, including the care of patients on home parenteral nutrition for which the Bristol Royal Infirmary provides a regional service. Valuable general medical experience will be gained by a share of the acute medical rota.

This advert closes on Sunday 17 May 2020
