Keele University

Faculty of Health
Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine

University Hospital of North Staffordshire and
Surgical Division Obstetrics & Gynaecology

Professor/Consultant in Obstetrics & Gynaecology

Post Ref: AC12/17BMJ

This joint appointment between Keele University and the University Hospital of North Staffordshire is one of several posts that have been created to strengthen the Clinical Academic endeavour within the Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, part of the Faculty of Health. We intend to create a ‘Centre of Excellence’ in this key area, building upon our existing clinical and academic strengths. This post is a key investment in the Academic Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, committed and innovative clinician with a strong research background who would make a major contribution to the strategic development of research and clinical services.

In this role you will be expected to contribute to the delivery of the strategic aims of Keele University, by producing research of the highest international quality. You would be expected to have an established portfolio of research grant successes and a strong record of high quality publications.

The clinical work of the appointee will be based at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire and mainly within the New Maternity Centre. Whilst the emphasis of this post is on academic excellence, you will be required to provide high quality clinical care and will be expected to have high level of clinical skills and expertise in either obstetrics or gynaecology. The four clinical PAs of the job plan are designed to allow you to undertake gynaecological outpatients or antenatal clinic, labour ward or gynaecological surgery and to participate in the on-call rota with colleagues.

You would be expected to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and research supervision within the Faculty of Health, and are also likely to work closely with colleagues within the Medical School and newly established Health Services Research Unit.

For an informal discussion, please contact Professor Shaughn O’Brien, email: Shaughn.O’ or Professor Gordon Ferns, email: for more details, informal advice, or a visit to the Department.
