With more than 6,000 students, 1,600 staff and an annual research income of almost £60m, the Faculty of Medicine and Health at Leeds is by itself bigger than some universities. Our vision is to improve health and to reduce health inequalities, at international, national and local levels through the delivery of research excellence with impact. The Faculty has world class research strengths in cancer, musculo-skeletal (including dentistry), cardiovascular and genetics research with cross cutting applied health research strengths including clinical trials, health technologies assessment, healthcare organisation and service delivery, life course epidemiology, complex interventions, qualitative methods and health psychology.
Our staff work very closely with the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. The Leeds General Infirmary is directly attached to the University campus and the School of Medicine has a research intensive campus based at St James’s University Hospital. We have a strong translational focus to our research and work with public health organisations, health charities, industry and academic collaborators elsewhere in the UK and around the world.
We currently have Academic Fellowship and Clinical Academic Fellowship vacancies across a range of priority research areas. Each area involves researchers from a wide range of departments throughout the Faculty of Medicine and Health and other university faculties including Biological Sciences, Engineering, Maths and Physical Sciences. The priority research areas are deliberately broad in application to reflect the scope of the Faculty’s research activity and to appeal to exceptional candidates across a wide range of research backgrounds.
We actively encourage applications from clinically qualified applicants from specialty trainee through to consultant level.
