Online applications are invited to apply for a senior fellow in infectious diseases commencing asap. This post is fixed term until August 2019.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain training and experience in ID in a busy tertiary referral hospital of excellence and would be suitable to someone wanting to gain experience within the field and to eventually train to CCT in infectious diseases.

The post holder will join our dynamic team to provide care for inpatient and outpatients with complex infection as well as having the opportunity to work in a tertiary centre that acts as a regional hub for HIV and TB services. The department of infection runs the infectious disease inpatient firm as well as outpatient clinics, a consultation service, OPAT services, antibiotic stewardship service and an infection prevention and control service that all work closely and collaboratively with speciality teams within the hospital.

Previous experience in infectious diseases or related medical specialities is desirable but not essential. The post holders will join a large and supportive infectious diseases team which includes two academic ID physicians and will have opportunities to participate in world leading research projects including clinical trials of in-vitro diagnostic devices for infection and human challenge models.

The appointments will be within the Department of Infection, Directorate of Specialist Medicine, Division B, University Hospital Southampton Foundation NHS Trust.

Appointment will be made under local contractual terms and conditions of service for Trust appointed (non-training fellow doctors and dentists) which will be published and available at time of offers.

Grades for Trust appointed (non-training) fellows will be paid a basic salary at a nodal pay point linked to the grade, at the rate set out in the National Medical and Dental pay circular. Basic salary detailed below plus any additional remuneration (as applicable) for hours set out in the doctors work schedule (e.g. additional hours, weekend allowance, and any hours which attract enhanced pay)
