Applications are invited for the post of Clinical Fellow (Higher) in Infectious Diseases to start as soon as possible until 31 July 2018 at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Infectious Diseases physicians are commonly the "problem solvers" for the difficult-to-diagnose diseases. There is a surprisingly broad exposure to imported and tropical diseases such as malaria and other parasitic infections as well as community-acquired infections and there are good shared care arrangements in HIV Medicine with the Department of Genito-Urinary Medicine. 

The post is available to applicants who have clinical experience and qualifications equivalent to ST3 level or above as well as applicants who are post-CCT. 

The post holder will also be expected to contribute to the General Internal Medicine higher rota. This is a commitment of 6 weeks in every 44 weeks. As this rota is written on a rolling basis, it is expected that this post will contribute no more than 6 weeks during their six months in post. This will include night shifts, on take cover and post take ward rounds. The timetable is flexible and according to the successful candidate’s needs.

This post is not accredited as part of a speciality training programme.

The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).  Full Registration and a Licence to Practice with the General Medical Council at time of application is required.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is an Equal Opportunities Employer.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
