We are currently seeking applications for a Senior Clinical Fellow, providing an exciting opportunity to broaden and extend your clinical experience of paediatric Immunology, BMT and Infectious Diseases in the busy but supportive environment of a large children’s hospital.


As part of a team of middle grade doctors, you will provide outpatient daycase care, and will be trained in the diagnostic work-up and therapeutic management of children with recurrent infections and Primary Immunodeficiency.


The role offers a particularly valuable experience of the long-term outpatient management of children with Primary Immunodeficiency, working closely with the consultant team and specialist nurses.

The post will provide unique experience for someone wishing to consolidate their previous experience and training in Immunology, Bone Marrow Transplantation, and Infectious Diseases. MRCPCH (or equivalent international paediatric training) and previous experience in Immunology and/or Infectious Diseases is essential.
