Job description

Applications are invited for the post of Senior Lecturer in Haematology at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).  This post is being offered in association with Eastbourne Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (ESHT) where the successful applicant will hold an honorary consultant contract.  The postholder’s primary clinical base will be the Haematology Department at Eastbourne General Hospital with links also to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.

The successful applicant will be an accredited doctor with a substantial research background in the field of haemato-oncology and a specialist interest in myeloma and related plasma cell disorders.  The post is part of the continuing academic development in clinical and basic Cancer Medicine at BSMS.  This is a major element in the developing research strategy of the School, reflecting our interest in basic  and applied sciences and clinical trials.  Academic haematology is led jointly by Dr Timothy Chevassut, Reader in Haematology and Honorary Consultant, and Professor Chris Pepper, Chair in Cancer Research at BSMS.  The Schools has invested heavily in the infrastructure required, including state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, a fully-functional and well-staffed CRF (CIRU), modern imaging sciences centre (CISC), and recently-formed CTU, as well as SHORE-C, an international centre of excellence in psycho-oncology. Clinically, the haematology department at Eastbourne General Hospital provides services to a wide population across East Sussex and works closely with the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton as well as King’s College and Royal Marsden hospitals.

Applicants that are UK trained, must be a holder of a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT), or be within six months of award of CCT by date of interview.  Contribution to teaching in the highly successful BMBS medical teaching course is also a component of this post.  The post holder would be expected to undertake clinical activity as an Honorary Consultant in the Trust, working primarily at Eastbourne General Hospital.
