Clinical Lecturer in Critical Care Medicine
An exciting opportunity has arisen for the appointment of two Clinical Lecturers in Critical Care Medicine. These posts are full time and open ended within the Section of Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care (APMIC). Clinical time will be based at the Charing Cross Hospital Campus initially with an honorary consultant contract with ICHNT.
These posts are the next stage of the ongoing academic initiative jointly supported by Imperial College London and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust to revitalise academic anaesthesia and critical care within the Imperial Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC). Academic anaesthesia is considered to be an ‘endangered’ speciality worldwide, and in the UK in particular there has been a serious decline in academic anaesthesia personnel/activities over the past two decades.
Duties and responsibilities
All members of clinical academic staff are expected to be active and highly respected in clinical practice, in research, publishing papers in leading journals, attending conferences, teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate taught course students, supervising research students and obtaining funding to support their students and research activities. The appointees will be expected to have a record in such activities.
Teaching and research are considered an integral part of the post. These posts will involve the usual administrative duties associated with a busy academic and research-active environment and the appointees will be expected to enhance the academic standing of the Department of Surgery and Cancer.
The successful candidates will have full GMC and CCT in Intensive Care Medicine or equivalent. You will be able to demonstrate a developing track record of publishing in national and international peer-reviewed journals. Experience in teaching and postgraduate supervision will be essential.
Imperial College is supportive of flexible working. The recruiting department are happy to discuss the possibility of implementing such arrangements for this post, with suitably qualified people subject to operational requirements.
