Division of Infectious Diseases
Imperial College London is seeking to make a clinical academic appointment to develop a portfolio of research in collaboration with existing strengths within the Division of Infectious Diseases. This is an exciting opportunity for an individual wishing to further develop a programme of research within the unique research environment offered by the National Institute for Health Research Health Protection Research Unit in Healthcare Associated Infection and Antimicrobial Resistance.
The Unit brings together the expertise of the College, with that of Public Health England, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the University of Cambridge and Imperial College Health Partners Academic Health Science Network.
The programme of research at the Unit includes:
Applied molecular bacteriology
Applied data linkage, syndromic surveillance and modelling
Innovations in behaviour change, technology and patient safety to improve infection prevention and antimicrobial use
Organisational change, health economics, sustainability and evaluation.
The post holder will be expected to develop their own high quality and sustainable research programme. The post holder will have a particular remit to develop applied research harnessing the rich sources of material and data available from our partners.
We are interested in applications from those who are able to demonstrate their ability to produce independent research and wish to pursue an academic career. Although this post has no clinical job responsibilities, opportunities for clinical practice can be found if required to maintain license to practice, although they do not form part of the job plan for this role.
You should have a strong academic track record in applied data linkage, syndromic surveillance or modelling and a first or upper second class degree and a PhD, or equivalent, in Epidemiology, Statistics, Health Services Research or a related numerate subject.
Imperial College provides an outstanding environment for basic, clinical and translational research, and supports academics through tailored training programmes, with mentoring and via comprehensive administrative support. This would be a fantastic opportunity for an individual with the ability to develop unique ideas.
