REF. 317-TD-21-185 

We are delighted to be able to offer an opportunity for a highly motivated, ambitious individual to join our well-integrated team.  The vacancy has arisen within the Department of Vascular Surgery at the Northern Vascular Centre, based at the Freeman Hospital.  The post is available to commence in June 2021 for 12 months initially.

The successful applicant will work a 1:7 vascular on-call rota. The post would suit experienced registrars who wish to train further in complex aortic surgery, prior to appointment as a consultant.  There will be an opportunity to perform research and to learn advanced endovascular techniques as well as complex open vascular surgery. Successful applicants will have a good understanding of basic endovascular aneurysm repair and infra-renal aortic repair, with the fellowship allowing time to develop advanced techniques in both endovascular and open surgery.  Close working with the cardiothoracic team in aortic cases will be essential.  The Unit specialises in suprarenal aortic surgery, joint cardiothoracic and vascular aortic work, complex EVAR and aortic dissection.  Applicants should possess full GMC registration and possession of the Intercollegiate Examination in General or Vascular Surgery is desirable. Salary will be at an appropriate point on the ST3+ pay scale.  This post is ideal for a post-CST fellow who wants to be a future leader in aortic surgery.
