Continuing on the success of the NIHR-Clinical Lectureship scheme at the University of Bristol/Severn Deanery, we are able to invite applications for a post in Cardiology. This post provides an excellent opportunity for a cardiology trainee with outstanding potential, to develop a successful career in academic cardiology within a thriving and supportive environment. Clinical training will be based in the Bristol Heart Institute, University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. Research opportunities and environments are available through Bristol Heart Institute which is one of University of Bristol’s Specialist Research Institutes. This offers opportunities in the laboratory sciences, clinical sciences, health services research and epidemiology. Clinical research themes currently include cardiovascular imaging, coronary artery disease, platelet function, hypertension, heart failure, and electrophysiology.

The Clinical Lectureship is designed to provide postdoctoral support for a talented clinical academic with a bona fide interest in this discipline who has submitted their higher degree (PhD, MD or equivalent) prior to applying for the post. The Lectureship provides 50% salary support to allow the clinician to set aside time to develop their academic skills with the remaining 50% funding for clinical training. 

The Lectureship is available for a maximum of four years and should enable the completion of clinical cardiology training, as well as the attainment of further support for research (e.g. intermediate or postdoctoral fellowship or personal grants) and experience in teaching.

The research interests of applicants should complement existing research programmes. Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Dr Angus Nightingale ( for an informal discussion of the post including how the candidate’s particular research direction can be supported and/or Prof Debbie Sharp ( for information on clinical academic training in Bristol.
