Opening in Imperial College London - Section of Genetics and Imaging

 Honorary contract with Royal Brompton and Harefield Foundation NHS Trust
 
Clinical Salary Range: £75,249 to £101,451 per annum, dependant on level of seniority plus £2,162 London Allowance per annum
 
The post is within the National Heart and Lung Institute, Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College, and is a joint initiative with the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital NHS Foundation Trust based at Harefield.
 
The Institute produces in excess of 550 peer-reviewed publications each year and in the last two Research Assessment Exercises the NHLI was awarded a 5 star (top) rating for its research performance in both the Hospital and Laboratory based Units of Assessment and has an annual turnover of around £64 million a year.
 
This post is based in the Genetics and Imaging section encompassing a wide spectrum of subspecialties from paediatric cardiology and congenital heart defects through to adult cardiology, surgery and health economics.  This section also combines structural and functional cardiac imaging, including Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, Positron Emission Tomography, Echocardiography, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiac Electrophysiology with the aim of integrating these approaches and collaborating with the expertise at Imperial College in such areas as Computing, Chemistry, Materials, Fluid Dynamics and Biomedical Engineering to develop novel investigational and treatment strategies. We aim to do this by increasing knowledge and understanding of the detectable abnormalities of structure and function in cardiovascular disease.
 
Applications are now sought to establish a research programme in Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) and lead the development of a CMR centre at Harefield Hospital.  This site has the advantage of a very large population based around Harefield Hospital and its associated referral network including a significant population that already attends the hospital on a regular basis. The programme will focus on the application of existing and new CMR techniques in clinical cardiology, with particular emphasis on acute coronary syndromes, coronary disease and heart failure.   
 
You will have an extensive track record of research excellence in the field, an outstanding international research and clinical reputation and experience of training and supervising students and junior medical staff. You will have a further Higher Degree, MD or PhD or equivalent and clinical training and experience in cardiovascular medicine equivalent to that required for a UK CCT.
