NIHR Clinical Lecturer In Primary Care

University College London

United Kingdom


Duties and Responsibilities

This post provides up to four years’ post-doctoral training for a general practitioner who can demonstrate outstanding potential to develop their career as an independent researcher, educator and leader in their chosen field. 

The post holder will be expected to:

·         Develop a coherent programme of primary care research within an area relating directly to one of the department’s existing research group themes. Whilst research collaborations with other departments within UCL or externally are encouraged, it is a requirement of the post that the main research supervisor should be based in PCPH
·        Participate in and lead a range of research activities, including literature review, development of grant proposals, collection of data, presentation of research results at academic conferences and writing of papers for publication in peer-reviewed journals
·         Supervise PhD students, junior clinical academics (e.g. Academic Foundation Year 2 doctors/Academic Clinical Fellows) and Masters students.

The post-holder will also be expected to undertake educational activities that account for around 20% of an fte.  These may be at undergraduate or postgraduate level.  The department teaches in all 6 years of the MBBS programme, offers an integrated BSc in primary health care to medical undergraduates, and short courses and Masters modules as part of the UCL MSc in Population Heath. The post will also involve working with the UCL NIHR School for Primary Care Training lead to develop and support Academic Career pathways within the department.

This post is funded for four years in the first instance but is subject to renewal each year.
