Academic GP Job Opportunities at UEA

News from Amanda Howe and Nick Steel at University of East Anglia about new academic job opportunities

Dear colleagues

Inviting enquiries on upcoming GP academic appointments at the University of East Anglia

The Medical School at Norwich has been established since 2002, and its place in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences has led to an increasingly powerful and active presence in the University, with many opportunities. It has access to all health disciplines, all components of health services research expertise, active laboratory science facilities, and excellent NHS and social care partnerships.

However, because we are still a ‘maturing’ unit, and because of our geographical location, relatively few people know the charms and advantages of working at UEA, or the beautiful and interesting setting of Norwich and Norfolk, with its easy access to Europe (Norwich is a KLM hub, Felixstowe / Harwich many ferries) and London (100 miles with good rail links).

Within a year, we expect to advertise a Professorial post to succeed Amanda Howe as Clinical Professor of Primary Care, and a reinstated GP lecturer / senior lecturer post. So we are inviting colleagues who would like to know more about these possibilities, and UEA, to contact us. Both postholders are expected to have a general practice background, and to be REF returnable in 2020. Research interests need to align with those of the School / Faculty, which are outlined in the information attached. UEA is a creative place that thrives on cross sectoral working locally, nationally and internationally,– so plenty of opportunity for new collaborators!

Please do contact us to find out whether there is a life enhancing change that might interest you – this information will be kept confidential, and the discussions are informal. We are happy to phone/SKYPE/arrange informal visits, and to discuss both professional opportunities and also family / partner needs if a move to the region is being considered.  

We would also be grateful if you want to share this with people who might be interested. And many thanks.

Professor Amanda Howe & Professor Nick Steel for the Health Services and Primary Care research group.
