Applications are invited for the post of Clinical Senior Lecturer / Clinical Lecturer in Paediatrics at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS). This post is being offered in association with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust where the successful applicant will hold an honorary consultant contract. The post holder’s primary clinical base will be the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, Brighton.

The post is part of the larger academic development in Paediatrics at BSMS which includes the rapidly growing Academic Department of Paediatrics at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, Brighton.

The medical school and the BSUHT host the Academic Department of Paediatrics. This is an integrated academic facility bringing together university and NHS consultants and junior staff within a seamless structure, with the aim of developing and sustaining excellence in the areas of clinical research and clinical service provision for children. The Academic Department of Paediatrics follows a strategic direction of research in respiratory medicine and neonatology and has reported major research and funding successes in areas such as stratified medicine and neonatal pharmacology, while rapid clinical service development has placed the hospital at the centre of the tertiary services developments in paediatrics in SE England. 

The Clinical Senior Lecturer / Clinical Lecturer will provide support for the development of our research portfolio in respiratory medicine. It is expected that the clinical senior lecturer / clinical lecturer will be a major strength within the BSMS teaching programme, and the appointee would also be expected to be involved in the Masters programme in Paediatrics.
