Hull York Medical School seeks to appoint an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Plastic Surgery, based within the Academic Vascular Surgical Unit (AVSU) and Department of Plastic Surgery at Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

We are seeking a highly motivated, enthusiastic individual wishing to excel in both their clinical and academic training, with the ambition to join the next generation of world-leading academic clinicians.  Applications are now invited for an Academic Clinical Lecturer in Plastic Surgery within the Academic Training Programme. This new post has been created as part of the National Co-ordinating Centre for Research Capacity (NIHRTCC) programme of Integrated Academic Training and offers candidates a comprehensive experience of clinical academic medicine, working alongside internationally renowned clinicians and researchers.  Applicants for this post must have an existing NTN (or be clinically benchmarked) and be at ST3 level or above and must hold a higher degree (MD, PhD or equivalent) with a focus on clinical wounds related research.

The Academic Lecturer will continue clinical training at 50% whole time equivalent rate within the Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber.  The appointee will participate in the regional training programme in the Health Education Yorkshire and Humber School of Surgery. As training in surgery 5+ years, an additional period of dedicated clinical training may be required, either before or after the Clinical Lectureship. The successful applicant will work with the Training Programme Director and Academic Lead to develop a configuration of research to clinical training conducive to both progression and academic output.

It is anticipated that this post will be based at the Academic Vascular Surgical Unit (AVSU), Hull Royal Infirmary.  The AVSU was established 20 years ago and collaborates with some of the strongest departments within the University of Hull; it has close links with the Hull York Medical School, Faculty  of Health Sciences, University of York, Clinical Departments in the NHS and to industry.  Areas of research include:  surgical wounds healing by secondary intention, surgical site infection.
