This is a full-time senior clinical fellow post in the Adult Lung Transplant Service.

Prospective candidates would be expected to have an interest in pursuing specialist training in Respiratory Medicine.

The post-holder will work with the existing Consultant Respiratory Physician as part of the Transplant Team at University of Manchester NHS Foundation Trust based at Wythenshawe Hospital contributing to the clinical care of the heart and lung transplant patients, and with an exposure to opportunities for clinical research and will provide comprehensive care to transplant patients including: assessment, peri-operative care and life long follow up in outpatients. 

The post-holder will be expected to learn managing lung transplant patients. In particular: performing fibre-optic bronchoscopies, trans-bronchial biopsies and the long-term management of immunosuppressive therapy.
