SENIOR CLINICAL RESEARCH FELLOW IN GYNAECOLOGICAL ONCOLOGY

We are looking to appoint as soon as possible a Senior Clinical Research Fellow based at the Swansea Gynaecological Oncology Centre (SGOC), which is a tertiary cancer referral centre.

The successful candidate will join a dedicated multi-disciplinary team and will obtain extensive exposure to modern gynaecological oncological management.

The post is aimed at senior trainees (ST 5 or above) as well as post CCT holders, for a fixed term of twelve months.

This role will be 50% research and 50% clinical as follows:

CLINICAL:

The post holder will take part in all gynaecological oncology clinical activities (clinics in the MacMillan Cancer Centre, MDT's, ward rounds and theatre lists) for 2.5 days per week (5 sessions). These activities will be coordinated with the subspecialty gynaecological oncology trainee activities and will usually include one clinic, an MDT and 1-2 theatre lists per week on a flexible timetable. There is no on call commitment attached to this post.

RESEARCH:

The post holder will actively engage in performing lab-based or clinical research in gynaecological oncology depending on his/her specific interests within the departmental research portfolio.

There are opportunities for the post-holder to pursue a higher degree (MD/PhD) if they show the commitment and aptitude commensurate with such an undertaking. If appointed to such a role, the Gynaecological Oncology clinical research fellowship takes place within the Gynae-Oncology department and Swansea University.

The post-holder is expected to submit papers to peer-reviewed journals for publication and present at national/ international meetings.

We have a vibrant educational programme with a weekly ward teaching and educational meeting where all fellows attend to present/ discuss projects and engage in teaching and presentation skills.

Professor Kerryn Lutchman Singh will be the academic and clinical supervisor for the successful candidate and is managerially responsible for this post.
