Laing Galazka Chair in Palliative Care

Cicely Saunders Institute of Palliative Care, Policy and Rehabilitation

King’s College London

This is an exciting opportunity to be the inaugural Laing Galazka Chair in Palliative Care, working within the world-leading Cicely Saunders Institute (CSI). The ambition is for the endowed Professor to deliver research that will transform future health care and palliative care services. Working with the academic and clinical teams, the successful candidate will play a pivotal role in the academic work of the CSI, leading applied health services and/or clinical research and education focused on palliative care and/or older people and/or multimorbidity, and the interface between these.

Underpinning this appointment are the objectives of our generous donor charities, The Kirby Laing Foundation and Cicely Saunders International, to prioritise research that reflects the national demographic of an increasingly ageing population.

We are looking for someone with an academic track record in palliative care, older people, multimorbidity research and/or applied health services. The successful candidate will demonstrate leadership capability in research and education, the ability to drive fundable future research, and work with multidisciplinary teams, including our NHS and voluntary partners. 

King’s is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and through this appointment it is our aim to develop candidate pools that include applicants from all backgrounds and communities. We particularly encourage applications from women, people from black and minority ethnic communities, the LGBT+ community and from disabled people.
