Applications are invited for doctors with suitable experience to work as full time clinical fellows within the department of transplantation and cellular therapy (CAR-T). This exciting opportunity has arisen due to significant expansion with the service including the expansion of the CAR-T programme. We are looking to appoint two clinical fellows for 12 months. The role is ideally suited to someone at completion of haematology specialist training; however doctors who have accumulated significant haematology experience may also be considered. The role will provide significant structured training in cellular therapy and where suitable applicants will be encouraged to develop a research project with a view to undertaking an MD/PhD.

Nationally the transplant team at Kings provides one of the largest services for adult stem cell transplantation. This includes both autologous and allogeneic transplantation for a range of haematological malignancies with a specialist interest in myeloid disorders and bone marrow failure syndromes. In addition to the Clinical BMT programme, we provide donor evaluation and collection services for Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust as one of their Collection Facilities. The CAR-T programme has established the first allogeneic CAR-T trial for ALL and a number of other CAR-T trials are planned for 2019 including in AML, lymphoma and myeloma and is accredited by NHSE as a CAR-T centre

This JACIE accredited service is led by a Transplant Director and staffed by a team of consultants and clinical nurse specialists. The transplant team includes a well-established team of 4 nursing and 2 medical transplant coordinators, a post-BMT Nurse Consultant, 2 post-BMT CNS’s in addition to dedicated administrative support. Research and visiting fellows in the BMT programme participate in clinics and follow-up of transplant patients. There is a dedicated transplant clinic once a week, regular schedule for day unit reviews and a weekly nurse-led specialist late effects clinic.

The successful candidate will work under the supervision of the Transplant Director, CAR-T lead and consultant team rotating through both the inpatient and out-patient service.
