The Department of Nephrology at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust is partnered with the academic nephrology department at University College London which has an international reputation: its researchers having discovered numerous novel kidney diseases and made key discoveries in genetic kidney disease. We now offer a one-year Clinical Fellowship to assist in developing a world-leading Genomic Medicine service for people with rare kidney diseases. The successful applicant will assist with the analysis and interpretation of Whole Genome Sequencing data, communicating findings to patients and families and tailoring therapy accordingly. Working within a strong multidisciplinary team (including adult and paediatric nephrologists, clinical and laboratory geneticists on-site and at Great Ormond Street Hospital, and a specialist nurse) the post-holder will gain unique experience in the delivery of genomic medicine in practice. The Fellow will also contribute to the delivery of novel therapeutics and interventional trials running in the department. The job plan allows time for the Fellow to develop their own research project and would be ideal for a trainee or post-CCT fellow in nephrology, paediatrics or genetics who wishes to develop specialist expertise in renal genetics. The post is for 12 months with the possibility of extending if required.

Candidates must be fully GMC-registered with a licence to practice.
