This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills.

Senior Trust Doctor ST3+ within Oncology

The London Sarcoma Service are looking to appoint two senior medical oncology trainees or post-specialist training doctors or paediatric oncologists with appropriate teenage and young adult (TYA) cancer experience to gain an extensive, varied training in oncology clinical research and practice focussed on sarcoma, with specific emphasis on systemic anti-cancer therapy.

The London Sarcoma Service aims to deliver world-class care for patients with all types of sarcoma, linking research with clinical care. UCLH, working in conjunction with surgical colleagues at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, hosts a comprehensive service for the management of all types of sarcoma in patients of all ages.

These posts will give experience across the full range of our service. Considerable flexibility will be exercised in response to the number and experience of applicants with the possibility to tailor clinical and research experience. 

The preferred option is for post holders to complete two 6-month attachments. One post will have a focus on bone sarcoma and sarcomas in young people. The second post will be primarily focused on soft tissue sarcoma and GIST.  Each post holder is anticipated to have specific clinical research responsibilities supporting current programmes in osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma as well as working in conjunction with the sarcoma team on other sarcoma projects.  The unit has a strong clinical trials portfolio for sarcoma for both commercial and investigator-led studies. The unit also works closely with the UCLH/UCL Cancer Clinical Research Facility (CCRF) which is a dedicated facility for early phase cancer drug investigational trials and has an active sarcoma portfolio.

This post will not attract on call banding or supplement.
