Trust Clinical Research Fellow (ST3+) in Medical Oncology

Job Reference: 358-2449451-MED

Employer:
University Hospitals of Leicester
Department:
Oncology
Location:
Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester
Salary:
£49.036.00

The 12 month clinical oncology fellowship will provide training in intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), in the treatment of head and neck and colorectal cancers, and stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR), in primary lung and oligometastatic disease. The post would be suitable for a senior (Part 2 FRCR) or post CCT clinical oncology trainee.

The post holder will be expected to support the clinical activities of the Cancer Centre including clinical trial work. They will gain higher level site specialist experience in head and neck and colorectal cancers. Our large clinical practice provides broad experience in both local and systemic approaches in each tumour site, providing an ideal background to further develop the appointee’s clinical experience that will enable them to be well placed to develop as an independent practitioner in their chosen area.

The appointee will train in technologically advanced radiotherapy techniques (including SABR and IMRT). We are committed to the development and implementation of the latest techniques in radiotherapy and their clinical evaluation and are a regional referral centre for SABR. Duties would include attendance at outpatient clinics (new and radiotherapy clinics), contribution in radiotherapy treatment planning, audit and day to day care of patients. The post holder would also receive training and provide support in the systemic management of patients with head and neck and colorectal cancers (including chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted agents). They will undertake a focused clinical research project in an area of interest, developing strategies for the use and development of IMRT and SABR techniques within the department.
