Applications are invited for the joint role of Anatomy Demonstrator and Clinical Fellow (Core) working with the University of Cambridge Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience (PDN) and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH). These posts are available to commence on 01 August 2018 for a period of 12 months to 06 August 2019.

Post holders will take part in a dissecting-room teaching programme of Topographical Anatomy for Preclinical Medical Students and will be attached to one of CUH’s surgical departments. All post holders will participate in the full shift rota of their surgical department providing long day and night cover only during University term time. In addition, when not engaged in Anatomy duties (outside of term time) you will be expected to participate in the daytime commitments of the clinical service including theatre lists, clinics, and ward cover. The clinical commitments will vary between the specialties and be appropriate for the clinical area you are attached to.

Applicants must have achieved their Foundation Competencies or equivalent and must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).
