This is an exciting opportunity for doctors in specialist training with research experience who would like to pursue an academic career in ophthalmology or medical ophthalmology, specifically in ocular inflammation and imaging. The Department of Eye and Vision Science (DEVS) has an internationally-acclaimed track record of research in ophthalmic imaging across subspecialities including uveitis, diabetic retinopathy, AMD, infectious retinitis and cornea. The department is a leading centre for the development of image processing and AI image analysis in ophthalmology, hosting the Centre for image analysis and AI in healthcare. We also work together with the Liverpool Ophthalmic Reading Centre (part of the UK Network of Ophthalmic Reading Centres). Ophthalmic inflammation, particularly uveitis research, is a strategic priority of DEVS linking with research in inflammation across departments in the university and the Liverpool Research Eye Bank.
Clinical Lectureships represent the second substantive phase of integrated clinical and academic training, which is intended to follow a PhD, or equivalent, and leads on to CCT. The successful candidate will have experience in clinical research, and will have completed (or soon to complete) a PhD in a relevant area. They will demonstrate outstanding potential for development as an independent clinical researcher and academic. The post is available for 4 years or until CCT with 50% research time.
