This is a joint University / Hospital position and will be held as a single contract with the University. The two separate roles equal the equivalent of one full-time position.

The appointee will have academic qualifications and prior experience in teaching and research, and will be responsible for teaching at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. There will be significant opportunity for laboratory and clinically-based research. Joining a team of well-established researchers based both in Dunedin and at the Christchurch campus of the University of Otago, you will receive plenty of support for your research and have ample opportunity for meaningful collaborations.

Clinical Component - 0.5FTE

The Dunedin Hospital has 388 beds and provides care for a population of approximately 300,000 spread over a large area of the lower South Island of New Zealand. The successful applicant will participate in a 1:8 on-call roster for general radiology and provide a full range of radiological services alongside an enthusiastic group of colleagues. The applicant will need to have the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) or equivalent qualification and must hold, or be eligible for, vocational registration with the New Zealand Medical Council.

An application from a generally trained clinical radiologist with a strong interest in teaching and research would be considered.
