CLINICAL RESEARCH FELLOW IN ENT (OTOLARYNGOLOGY)
Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust invites candidates to apply for this new, fully funded, research fellow post.
The post available is located at Charing Cross Hospital.
The post holder will have opportunities to further their research knowledge and skills through working within the unit and by having access to Imperial College Academic Facilities. There are opportunities to register for a postgraduate degree at Imperial College London with discounted tuition fees. The post holder can expect to publish a minimum of two peer-reviewed articles per year and to present findings of their research in National and International symposia.
The post is to commence as soon as possible and is suitable for those who want to improve their portfolio to get better scores at Core or Specialist Training selection without being penalised for being over-experienced in ENT.

The supplement is currently set at 1B but is subject to an increase based on hours worked.
The ENT Department at Imperial has a worldwide reputation for excellence and innovation and a track record of publications and presentations. The department has 18 consultants and sees nearly 12,000 new outpatients a year at the two main sites. In addition to routine ENT, all consultants have subspecialist skills. Several members of the team are recognised as international experts in their field. As a result patients are referred from all over the UK and other countries worldwide.

Tertiary referrals are also received for complex otology and rhinology. The department is currently based on 2 sites, St Mary's Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital.
