Applicants will be experienced NHS clinicians (consultant or other non-training grade) based at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds, or established general practitioners from those general practices involved in teaching Cambridge Graduate Course students. The post is for 2 Programmed Activities (2PAs) per week, and applicants must be able to demonstrate how the time commitment will be established within their job plans (or equivalent). The post is for five years (renewable).

Applicants will have a strong commitment to medical education, and graduate entry medical education in particular, and will have demonstrated enthusiasm for and dedication to effective teaching, assessment and pastoral support. Applicants will be flexible and organised, and will be committed to understanding and contributing to course design and development, and to clearly demonstrate the relevance of medical science to clinical medicine. An educational qualification, or willingness to undertake one, would be desirable.

The successful applicant will be offered a fellowship at Wolfson College, Cambridge.
