The candidate will be required to include a suggested research project in their Fellowship application. Candidates are encouraged to meet with Professor Gleeson to discuss the post. The successful candidate will be a GMC registered Medical Practitioner with a strong academic track record, e.g. a BSc (or equivalent) with a 1st or 2:1; honours or distinction in the MB finals, with an interest in oncological imaging. Evidence of a strong publication record, of which at least one should be a first author publication in a high ranking scientific journal, and basic experience in laboratory science and/or trials are desirable. They should also have good interpersonal and communication skills. This full-time post is offered for 3 years.
