Applications are invited for a post of Senior Clinical Fellow in the Department of Respiratory Medicine.  The post will be based at Royal Preston Hospital, working predominantly with Dr M Munavvar, Consultant Chest Physician. It will offer special experience in Basic and Advanced Techniques in Bronchoscopy/ Thoracoscopy, Lung Cancer and Tuberculosis, besides various other aspects of Respiratory Medicine.  Experience in Respiratory Medicine/ Bronchoscopy is essential.

The applicant should have experience in respiratory medicine and MRCP, and will be expected to supervise CMTs with in-patient and out-patient work. There will be some undergraduate teaching commitment as well. The post is offered for a period of 12 months. The candidate will be expected to complete a clinical research and audit project during this period. There is an excellent purpose built education centre with extensive library facilities. This post should be viewed as a career advancement in respiratory medicine, and developing subspecialisation in Interventional Bronchoscopy.

Most recent appointees have had this training recognised by JRCPTB.
