Clinical Senior Lecturer/Honorary Consultant in Neurology

Newcastle University is looking for a Clinical Senior Lecturer/Honorary Consultant in Neurology. The 10 PA job plan for this newly created post will comprise 5 academic and 5 clinical PAs (the latter including 1 SPA) and you will work with a team of clinical academics led by the Professor of Neurology.

You will be expected to complement existing research activities within the Wellcome Centre for Mitochondrial Research (WCMR) in Newcastle University’s Translational and Clinical Research Institute (NUTCRI). This will include building on existing programmes of patient cohort development, natural history studies and interventional clinical research, but you should also look to develop your own area of expertise in mitochondrial disease research. You will be encouraged and supported in establishing new national and international scientific research collaborations. You will be required to support clinical neurosciences teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes as well as supervise undergraduate and postgraduate (Masters/PhD) students within the WCMR. You will be expected to seek independent funding to support your research in the form of fellowships, individual project grants and contributions to large collaborative grant applications. You will receive appropriate support from within the WCMR and more broadly within NUTCRI and the Faculty of Medical Sciences to aid such applications.

You will be appointed at an Honorary Consultant level and will be expected to contribute to clinical services in Neurology at the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Your clinical neurology duties will be mainly located at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, with mitochondrial clinics held at the CRESTA research clinic within the Campus for Ageing and Vitality (formerly Newcastle General Hospital). There is on-call commitment with this post for specialist advice on Mitochondrial disease patients and you will be expected to provide an appropriate level of mutually agreed cover for colleagues during periods of absence. Contractually there will be a commitment to participate in Clinical Effectiveness and Audit and this would be expected to take place within your SPA time allocation. An annual review of duties will take place with both the Clinical Director for Neurosciences and the Dean of NUTCRI as part of the job planning process.

Interviews are to be held on Friday 30th July 2021.
