The University of Edinburgh is seeking to reappoint a Senior Clinical Research Fellow in Radiology at consultant level to complement existing strengths in its research imaging facilities. Candidates with a proven track record in imaging research are preferred (at PhD or MD level), but those with an interest in clinical imaging research are also invited to apply. A particular attraction is the opportunity to gain research experience and develop a research portfolio through collaboration with several vibrant world-leading research streams focusing on cardiovascular, thoracic, neurological and inflammation diseases.

Superb imaging, clinical and world-class biomedical research facilities are available, co-located with MRC Centres, including two full time research MR scanners, PET-CT scanner, cyclotron, and dedicated multidisciplinary imaging expertise. By Autumn 2016, our existing facilities will be expanded with the addition of a Siemens 3T MR-PET system as part of the UK Dementia Platform and also another CT-PET system. The Brain Research Imaging Centre is about to take delivery of a neuro-optimised 3T whole-body MR scanner which will be based near the Royal Infirmary A&E department.

You will promote clinical academic imaging including facilitate workshops and online training. Candidates will provide research input to other studies and will also develop their own interests, while enhancing eLearning and on-line teaching initiatives. The post is approved at consultant/post general CCT level and is for two years in the first instance. Clinical radiology sessions will be undertaken in the Radiology Directorate, NHS Lothian. Candidates must have full registration with the GMC, be included on the Specialist Register as a Radiologist and will be offered an Honorary Consultant contract with NHS Lothian depending on experience.

Prospective candidates wishing to discuss the appointment should, in the first instance, contact: Professor Edwin van Beek, Chair of Clinical Radiology, Edinburgh Imaging (tel. 0131 2427760; email:
