Job description

Job summary

The main purpose of this post is to provide the appointee with time, resources, and encouragement to undertake directed imaging research in progressive fibrotic lung disease. Specifically, you will be evaluating visual, and in collaboration within our research group, computer-based methods for, predicting disease progression and monitoring response to treatment in patients with pulmonary fibrosis using HRCT imaging.

You will be based at the Inflammation Repair and Development (IRD) Section of the NHLI but will also have the opportunity to continue your clinical training in cardiothoracic imaging at the Royal Brompton Hospital (see Clinical training below). The unique patient population, imaging technologies and academic environment are expected to foster research work of a very high standard which may contribute towards a higher degree.

Duties and responsibilities

You will have an opportunity to enhance your skills in all aspects of cardio-thoracic radiology depending on your individual training needs. This will include individualized cardiac CT and thoracic CT sessions, participation in MDTs, supervised thoracic intervention lists, as well as ring fenced sessions for audit and research projects. You will also maintain and improve your skills in general clinical radiology by participating in plain film, ultrasound, and CT sessions.

There is a long tradition within the department of teaching in-house medical staff, trainees, and overseas visitors. There are a large number of departmental and clinical meetings (Appendix) which the appointee will be expected to attend and, in some instances, oversee.

Essential requirements

You will have a medical qualification with GMC registration and will have passed the full FRCR by the time the post is due to comment. They will have significant experience of specialist training in Radiology by the time of taking up the post. A subspecialist interest in cardiothoracic radiology is essential and although research experience is not required, it is desirable. Please see the Person Specification for more details.

Further information

The post is offered full time and fixed term contract of employment for 24 months based at the South Kensington Campus.

As this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, at the appropriate level, will be required for the successful candidate.

Should you require any further details on the role please contact Dr Simon Walsh at s.walsh@imperial.ac.uk or Professor Anand Devaraj at a.devaraj@rbht.nhs.uk.
