We are looking for an innovative and enthusiastic colleague for this full-time permanent consultant post in paediatric neuromuscular practice and translational research.

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust (GOSH) is a national centre of excellence in the provision of specialist children's health care, currently delivering the widest range of specialist care of any children's hospital in the UK. It is the only specialist Biomedical Research Centre for paediatrics, the largest centre in the UK for children with heart or brain problems, and the largest centre in Europe for children with cancer. It works in partnership with the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), part of University College London, and together they form the largest paediatric research and teaching centre in the UK.

The Dubowitz Neuromuscular Centre at GOSH is a leading clinical and research centre specialising in neuromuscular disorders affecting children, and provides regional and national services, including the nationally commissioned Highly Specialised Services for congenital myopathies, congenital muscular dystrophies and muscle channellopathies. The Centre is involved in more than 20 clinical trials and natural history studies.

This is a new neuromuscular consultant post, to provide additional support to the clinical service and the translational research of the Dubowitz Neuromuscular Centre and the clinical trials activities in the clinical research facility. The post holder will form part of a multidisciplinary team, participating in general and disease-specific clinics for the assessment, diagnosis and management of neuromuscular disorders and communicating with parents and local referral teams about management plans. Integral to this post, with a majority component of the work, is the special interest and expertise in translational research and the successful candidate will work across a continuously growing portfolio of neuromuscular clinical trials and early implementation of novel drugs in clinical practice. Participation in audit, teaching and collaborative clinical research is expected.

The applicant should hold GMC registration with CCST in paediatrics or equivalent accreditation in a speciality relevant to paediatric neuromuscular disorders, clinical and translational experience in paediatric neuromuscular disease and a track record of neuromuscular publications in peer-reviewed journals.
