Senior GP Clinical Research Fellow




Centre for Health Services Studies at the University of Kent and East Cliff Practice, Ramsgate.

Closing Date: Sunday 5th March 2023


Would you like to play a key role in the development of growing research activity in a major academic health research centre, as well as support clinical research in primary care across Kent and Medway?

An exciting new post has been created to lead primary care research activity in the region with the aim of increasing research in practice and building wider research networks in primary care.

We are looking for a registered General Practitioner with a demonstrable track record in primary care research who is a highly effective research leader and has a strong publication record.  The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an ability to attract research income and deliver high-impact research.

The post, which is based at the Centre for Health Services Studies at the University of Kent in Canterbury, is offered as 0.6FTE with the expectation that the postholder will retain two to four clinical sessions in general practice (0.2-0.4FTE), hosted by East Cliff Practice in Ramsgate.

The University of Kent campus occupies an enviable position overlooking the historic city of Canterbury, which is less than an hour away from London via a high-speed rail link and only 20 minutes by train from Ramsgate with its historic harbour and attractive coastline. East Cliff, which was chosen as host practice through a formal competitive process, is a long-established and friendly practice with a track record of supporting research.  It is dedicated to team working, professional development, communication and holistic care.
