Job Description

Applications are invited for the post of Clinical Fellow (Core-Higher) in Medical Microbiology available to start as soon as possible until 04 February 2020 with the possibility of an extension for a further six months at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH).
This post will be based at Public Health England Clinical Microbiology and Public Health Laboratory in Addenbrookes Hospital.
Opportunities are available at either Core or Higher Trainee level and will be dependent on the successful applicant's experience.
The duties of these posts are dependent on your level of experience. They are likely to include participation in the Microbiology Specialty Registrar rota for the provision of clinical services during routine laboratory hours to Addenbrooke's hospital and the local community . There may also be the possibility of joining the out of hours on-call rota. While not a formal training post, this position offers excellent experience in clinical microbiology and infection and would provide a solid grounding for those contemplating a career in the infection specialties.
In addition, you will be allocated an Educational Supervisor and encouraged to participate in all of the training opportunities open to our StRs. These include daily lunchtime teaching (Microbiology, Infectious Diseases, Grand Round, departmental meeting, case-based discussion); attendance at specialist ward rounds and multi-disciplinary meetings by rotation (for example Intensive Care Units, Neuro-Critical Care Unit, Transplant patients, Infectious Diseases). If required, an initial laboratory bench rotation will be offered. You will be invited to attend exam preparation sessions with the other Registrars, depending on requirements. Completion of audit and small research projects is actively encouraged. In addition to diagnosis and management of infections, you will also gain experience in infection control and antibiotic stewardship.
In order to be considered, applicants must hold full GMC registration with a licence to practice at time of application. Experience of Medical Microbiology is desirable but not essential. The applicant should have experience in medical specialties where care of patients with infections is a major part.
Please note that this post does not carry Postgraduate Dean's approval or training recognition.
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/OET 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.
