Applications are invited for the above joint post with the University of Cambridge and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The post is based at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. The Academic Department of Paediatrics is embedded in the main hospital. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to pursue a career in Academic Paediatrics alongside a clinical role in the Paediatric Intensive Care. The University Department of Paediatrics is an internationally recognised centre for research in physiological, genetic and metabolic studies of child health, growth and development. The last UK Government Research Assessment Exercise awarded the department a 5* rating for research over the previous 5 year period. The post offers significant protected time to develop a research programme in a collaborative and supportive environment, while allowing clinical duties to be undertaken.

The PICU offers specialist care for children admitted with neurosurgical problems including trauma and support for co-located paediatric subspecialties at Addenbrooke’s which include Endocrinology and Diabetes, Haematology and Oncology, Neurology, Gastroenterology, Respiratory, Spinal surgery, General surgery and Cleft/Lip and Palate surgery. While there is no cardiac surgery at Addenbrooke’s all other forms of cardiovascular, respiratory and renal support are undertaken on the PICU, including high frequency ventilation, nitric oxide, haemofiltration and intracranial pressure monitoring. The post will be part of a 1:6 on call rota supported by eight middle grade trainees.
