(inclusive of London allowance)£42,134 -£47,690 per annum, depending on skills and experience
This post offers an opportunity for a Clinician in either Dermatology or Plastic surgery to join a research team working on wound healing and the work would involve state-of-the-art research at the interface between basic science and clinical medicine, in a Unit with a world-class track-record. Reduction of post-operative scarring is a desirable outcome in plastic surgery, especially in infants and children. Epithelial-mesenchymal interactions are important in the process of wound healing and when this process is impaired, it can lead to scarring or keloid formation.
The post holder will initiate studies to provide more insight into why some individuals are prone to hyper- or atrophic scarring with the potential of identifying epidermal and dermal biomarkers as suitable targets for both treatment and possibly prevention.
This position is initially funded for 36 months.
Applicants must have be medically qualified and registered with the GMC. The post holder must have experience of specialist training in an appropriate specialty. Excellent communication and organisational skills plus computer literacy are essential. The appointee would be expected to participate in new areas of research for a PhD thesis.
