Applications are invited for the post of Clinical Research Fellow in Transplant Surgery and Organ Retrieval (Core Trainee equivalent level).

We have three posts available, to start from 02 September 2018 for 12 months at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH).

The CUH Transplant Unit is one of the seven newly-recognised retrieval centres and the successful applicants will be integral to a dedicated retrieval team that performs approximately 150 retrievals each year with a well established non-heart-beating program.

The CUH Transplant Unit is an internationally-renowned academic centre and the post offers an excellent opportunity for the post-holder to study towards a higher degree. We anticipate that the clinical experience provided by the post, allied to the academic training offered, will enable the successful applicants to be highly competitive in applying for Speciality Training.

In order to be considered, applicants must be at Core Training level and to have gained their MRCS.

An essential requirement of the post-holder is to provide assistant surgical cover for the CUH multi-visceral organ retrieval service.

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).  Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

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. The UK Visas and Immigration department 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 UK Visas and Immigration 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.

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