Post of Clinical Fellow (STR1/2 equivalent) in Histopathology

Applications are invited for the post of Junior Clinical Fellow (STR1/2 equivalent) in the Histopathology. This is a full time post created to provide service cover until 3rd August 2021.

Basic salary £38,694, plus additional elements for additional hours, weekend and evening working.

The Histopathology team work in a purpose built modern, light and airy building on a green field site which has been commended for its design and infrastructure by external assessors. It is next to the research park and university campus in close proximity to the sports park equipped with a gym and pool. Each consultant has their own office with up to date IT equipment including voice-recognition software.

The working environment is supportive and friendly; there are good relations with both clinical colleagues and academics at the UEA. The department and subspecialist teams support all newcomers to help them adjust into their roles and gain experience. We have a newly opened Biorepository and are involved in the collection of samples for the Genomics England 100,000 Genome Project. The fantastic laboratory is UKAS accredited, fully staffed and BMS cut-up is well established. Private practice and work for HM Coroners are optional extras.

As a university teaching hospital we have developed our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia. We also work closely with our partners on the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development. We strongly encourage applications from individuals looking to initiate or develop academic and research activity in the department.

In particular the Quadram Institute housing one of the largest endoscopy facilities in Europe opened in mid December 2018. The vision of this new and innovative project is to create new interfaces between food science, gut biology, human health and disease, capitalising on the world-class bioscience cluster based at the Norwich Research Park. Scientists working with clinicians will work closely with major national and international funding bodies and charities, collaborators and investors to ensure translation of our fundamental science to benefit patients, consumers and wider society. The mission of the Quadram Institute is to understand how food and the gut microbiota are linked to the promotion of health and the prevention of disease, with an emphasis on diet- and age-associated diseases.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (1,000 beds) and Cromer and District Hospital, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery. The NNUH is the 4th largest cancer centre in the UK and our staff of over 7,000 treat more than one million patients; people from Norfolk, neighbouring counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country.
