Clinical Senior Lecturer in Dermatology specialising in Photobiology
(Equivalent to Associate Professor)
The University of Manchester invites applications for a Clinical Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Dermatology, based at the University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Greater Manchester.
You will have completed clinical training in Dermatology, and have gained or be near to gaining a certificate of clinical training (CCT) or its equivalent. You must have a higher research degree i.e. PhD/MD, or will soon acquire this, and show high potential as a future international leader in photodermatology. You will demonstrate an outstanding publication record for your career stage.
The purpose of this appointment is to increase the Dermatology Centre’s academic, research and clinical capacity in photodermatology/photobiology. You will therefore possess a track record in research from laboratory to human studies, supporting the University and Trust‘s strategic direction. You will have research interests complementary to those of the Centre, and related to the field of photodermatology/ photobiology. The Photobiology Unit is renowned for its academic profile, its clinical services, and its leading research into the health benefits and hazards of sunlight exposure, encompassing vitamin D synthesis, skin cancer, photosensitivity and photoprotective measures. Your clinical experience and/or interests will equip you to contribute to the photobiology clinical services, and further experience will be gained within post.
The post is based within the internationally-leading Centre for Dermatology Research, which is renowned for performing the highest standards of translational dermatology research. The Centre is located in the Institute of Inflammation and Repair, within the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences (FMHS). In addition to its dedicated dermatology laboratories, the Centre’s research benefits from exceptional opportunities for cross-disciplinary initiatives, including existing collaborations with the Faculty of Life Sciences (FLS), School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (SEAES), Cancer Sciences and the School of Pharmacy. Furthermore, FMHS has strong relationships with outstanding NHS partners, including Salford Royal Foundation Trust, as part of MAHSC (Manchester Academic Health Science Centre), one of only a small number of such Department of Health-accredited centres.
