Continuing on the success of the NIHR-Clinical Lectureship scheme we are able to invite applications for a post in Renal Medicine. This post provides an excellent opportunity for a nephrology trainee with outstanding potential, to develop a successful career in academic renal medicine within a thriving and supportive environment. Clinical training will be based in the Richard Bright Renal Unit in Southmead Hospital. Research opportunities and environments are available in laboratory sciences, clinical sciences, health services research and epidemiology within the University of Bristol, NHS research groups and the UK Renal Registry.

The Clinical Lectureship is designed to provide postdoctoral support for a talented clinical academic with a bona fide interest in this discipline who has submitted their higher degree (PhD, MD or equivalent) prior to applying for the post. It provides 50% salary support to allow the clinician to set aside time to develop their academic skills with the remaining 50% funding provided for clinical training.

The Lectureship is available for a maximum of four years starting on or after 1st September 2017 and should enable the completion of clinical training, as well as the attainment of further support for research (e.g. intermediate or postdoctoral fellowship or personal grants) and experience in teaching.

The research interests of applicants should complement existing research programmes. Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Dr Simon Satchell (s.c.satchell@bristol.ac.uk) for an informal discussion of the post including how the candidate’s particular research direction can be supported and/or Prof Debbie Sharp (debbie.sharp@bristol.ac.uk) for information on clinical academic training in Bristol.
