If you are interested in the possibility of a Clinical Lectureship in Sheffield, you are invited to contact the appropriate department at the University or email one of our current Clinical Lecturers.

Open now: NIHR Clinical Lectureships in General Surgery. Closing date 16th June 2019.

 Please see the University of Sheffield jobs site for current posts and how to apply.

For more information about the research undertaken in each specialty, see details in the Academic Clinical Fellowships section.

Where posts are offered in more than one specialty, interviews are held in all the specialties and the post offered to the most successful candidate overall.

Formula posts allow the CL to develop a project following their own interests and the strengths of the department.

Competition posts follow a theme specified by NIHR, and the research project will be developed in line with that, while still allowing the CL to develop their own interests within the theme.

Recruitment for 2019 CL posts will begin in March 2019 but academic leads welcome enquiries from prospective applicants. See ACF pages for contact details. Plain English summaries of NIHR CL themed posts are available on the NIHR website.

As well as the Sheffield Clinical Lecturer pump priming grant, we encourage CLs to apply for one of The Academy of Medical Sciences starter grants. These grants provide up to £30,000 over 1-2 years for consumables, to support Clinical Lecturers in developing and strengthening their research careers. Sheffield CLs have been very successful in gaining these grants.

Sheffield Clinical Lecturers have also reported that mentoring from The Academy of Medical Sciences' Mentoring Scheme has proved very helpful. The scheme is available for free for NIHR or locally-funded NIHR badged Clinical Lecturers.
