Job summary

Two new clinical academic posts in neonatology and paediatrics/child health, Faculty of Medicine

1 - Houston Paediatrics or Child Health - Clinical Senior Lecturer, Reader or Chair

2 - Weston Neonatology - Clinical Chair

Salary: £82,096 to £110,663 per annum, dependent on level of seniority plus £2,162 London Allowance per annum

The Faculty of Medicine is delighted to announce that we are recruiting to two senior clinical academic posts, in collaboration with our National Health Service (NHS) Trust partners – Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHT) and Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust (C&W).  

We are seeking two outstanding experts and leaders in their field, one to the Weston Chair in the area of neonatology, and another to the Houston Senior Lecturer/Readership/Chair in paediatrics and/or child health. Candidates must have a vision and passion to lead and contribute to our current or growing areas of strength.

 

Duties and responsibilities

There has never been a more exciting time to join Imperial to work within these fields. Recruitment to these positions will support the shared vision of Imperial, ICHT and C&W for West London Childrens’ Healthcare (WLCH).  WLCH has been founded to provide specialist paediatric and child healthcare in West and North West London, and to improve the health and wellbeing of the children we serve by moving beyond the boundaries of our individual organisations to deliver truly integrated care. The integration of all paediatric services at ICHT and C&W will be brought together under a single leadership structure, which will be closely linked with research activities lead by Imperial College London.

Our collaborative approach will strengthen professional relationships within the North West London system to enhance care of babies, children and young people, to provide the best possible start in life and a healthy transition to adulthood.  These posts will play pivotal roles in this vision. In addition, the successful applicants will engage with our newly formed integrated Imperial Centre for Paediatrics and Child Health and the Mohn Centre for Children’s Health and Wellbeing.

 

Essential requirements

The successful candidates must have, or be interested in, developing a UK-focused research programme. Depending on the level of appointment, they must also have a national or international reputation in their field, based on a track record of research, and evidence of leadership skills. Candidates must have the appropriate UK Clinical Specialist Registration with licence to practise, or must be eligible for registration within six months of interview and will need to fulfil the requisite clinical checks.

A full list of responsibilities and essential requirements can be seen in the attached Further Particulars for each post.

The posts are generously supported by donations from the Garfield Weston Foundation Trust (neonatology) and the Houston Family Foundation (paediatrics/child health).

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research
