Clinical Fellow (ST3+) in Thoracic Surgery


Applicants are invited to apply for the post of Clinical Research Fellow (ST3+ Equivalent) in Thoracic Surgery, based at the Barts Thorax Centre, St Bartholomew’s Hospital, to commence in as soon as possible for a period of 12 months.

St Bartholomew’s Hospital houses the state-of-the-art Barts Heart Centre, Barts Thorax Centre and the Barts Cancer Centre. The Barts Thorax Centre and Heart Centre  comprise a 54 bedded dedicated thoracic unit supported by an ITU comprising of 58 beds (level 3 and level 2) and 2 dedicated thoracic surgery theatres within a 10 theatre complex serving thoracic and cardiac surgery, including a dedicated robotic and hybrid theatre.

Thoracic surgery is currently delivered by a team of 6 full-time consultants, 6 registrars, and junior clinical fellows, with a separate thoracic surgery ward and high dependency unit.  There is on-site respiratory medicine and thoracic oncology support, further strengthened by co-location with the Barts Heart Centre, enabling expedient, convenient and best care of the co-morbidities common to us. The thoracic surgery department has been expanding rapidly and actively pursues innovation and service improvement to improve patient outcomes, and there are many opportunities for audit and research.

We are looking for registrars with senior thoracic surgery experience who are motivated and enthusiastic and wish to develop subspecialty skills in thoracic surgery.   You will also be part of the research program in thoracic surgery in our centre that is leading and taking part in the whole portfolio of UK trials.  In addition to this you will be providing care to thoracic surgery patients, managing referrals and attending the operating theatre, attending regular multidisciplinary meetings and participating in the weekly educational programme.  Time will be given for training and professional development.

The applicants must have full GMC registration with a license to practice and possess FRCS/MRCS or equivalent.
