Job description

Job summary

Imperial College London is consistently rated amongst the world’s best universities, renowned for its ground-breaking research, talented community of staff, students and alumni and its international reach.

We wish to appoint a world-leading clinical scientist to a Chair of Respiratory Medicine, within our National Heart and Lung Institute, Faculty of Medicine whose focus will be to advance our ongoing research programme in experimental medicine in airways diseases. This will align with NHLI’s Strategic Research Plan (2019 – 2024) and the College’s desire to consolidate its respiratory science into a newly refurbished building located alongside our existing Cardiology and Vascular Laboratories on the Hammersmith and White City Campuses.

The College is in an outstanding position to combine exceptional clinical expertise with innovative science to drive forward precision medicine in airways diseases. Current Imperial College NHLI’s research programmes range from population health and epidemiology, early-life cohorts of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), occupational asthma, to translational expertise in severe asthma investigating molecular mechanisms with multi-omics analyses and encompass both paediatric and adult chronic airways disease.

In this post, you will lead and establish clinical links and strengthen and integrate research within the severe asthma and COPD service of the Imperial AHSC (Academic Health Science Centre), build up an experimental/translational medicine programme including patients with chronic airways diseases, develop strong collaborative and interdisciplinary links with the National Phenome Centre to advance research in systems medicine, and Faculty of Engineering to advance AI (Artificial Intelligence) with imaging and biomarkers for precision medicine. In addition, you will also be expected to lead on the development of a Strategic Centre for Precision Medicine in Airways disease, spanning experimental medicine (including airway challenge studies), biomarker discovery, AI/Data Sciences and systems medicine.

In order to be successful in this role, you must hold a MD, PhD or equivalent in a related field. In addition, you must also have an international reputation in your field, established track record of research, and evidence of excellent leadership skills. You must have the appropriate UK Clinical Specialist Registration with licence to practise, or must be eligible for registration within six months of interview and will need to fulfil the requisite clinical checks.

A full list of responsibilities and essential requirements can be seen in the attached Job description.
