North Bristol NHS Trust

Clinical Fellow in Vaccinology/Infection Sciences (Full Time or Part Time).

The opportunity for a Clinical Fellowship has arisen for a period of 12 months, commencing as soon as possible. This post will be based at North Bristol NHS Trust, Southmead Hospital in Infection Sciences but the post holder will be expected to work across site.  The department is large and operates between Southmead Hospital and the Bristol Royal Infirmary campus.  There are excellent educational opportunities. The Department is involved with SARS-CoV-2 vaccine studies linked to the University of Oxford and a key element of this post is to facilitate the successful completion of these studies including recruitment, routine follow-up and tracking potential COVID infections. This would be an ideal opportunity to experience working in a tertiary referral centre with a prominent Infection Department and would suit those interested in a career in Infection Specialties or those with experience who want to extend their knowledge.

Full Registration with the GMC is essential. The post is based at Southmead Hospital but the post holder will be expected to work elsewhere, as needed, to perform the Vaccine Study or clinical duties. The Trust has teaching status and is linked with the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England.  The appointee will be required to reside not more than 30 minutes travel by road from Southmead Hospital, Bristol, for on-call purposes. Experience and familiarity with UK hospital systems and practices or equivalent is essential. 

This post is not recognised for training and does not have postgraduate deanery approval; however, the job is educationally sound and the post holder will gain significant experience useful for all Infection Specialties.

Please note, the number of vacancies is indicative and may change during the course of the recruitment process.
