Applications are invited for a Senior Clinical Fellow post in the department of Gastroenterology, starting between Aug 2018 and Feb 2019 for one year.

The duties of this post include a service commitment to 6 lists per week, 2 of which will be IBD clinics plus 4  mixed endoscopy, colonoscopy and out-patient clinics. The 4 sessions are to cover leave and consultant ward commitments and hence are worked at flexible times planned one month in advance. Applicants should be at or near the end of their specialist training and independent in these activities - fully competent in colonoscopy with an audited caecal intubation rate of greater than 90%.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to negotiate the remainder of available sessions to enhance their own individual experience in IBD – with associated research opportunities, outpatient and inpatient work.
