Haematology Malignancy Fellow


Department of Haematology
Flinders Medical Centre (FMC), Adelaide SA
Applications Close: 21 September 2018

The Department of Haematology at Flinders Medical Centre (FMC), Adelaide SA, has created a new and exciting position for a Haematology Malignancy Fellow. 

As part of a busy tertiary referral University teaching hospital, the Department of Haematology at FMC sees patients with a diverse range of blood cancers and has streams dedicated to myeloid and lymphoid malignancies, the latter divided primarily into CLL, lymphomas and multiple myeloma. 

A rapidly growing clinical research unit has been established which undertakes collaborative group (ALLG and AMaRC) and pharma sponsored clinical trials relating to the major clinical streams. The strength of the department lies in its link with the academic and research activities of Flinders University and other South Australian Universities. Basic and translational pre-clinical research programs exist in CLL and myeloma which directly link with both actively recruiting clinical trials and routine clinical care. 

The Haematology Malignancy Fellow will assist in outpatient clinic consultations, clinical trial unit activities including running one of more clinical trials, and if interested, a translational research project relating to one of the research programs. Dedicated research time will be provided if a research project is undertaken. Supervision of junior medical staff and students may also be required. 

Applicants must have a medical degree or equivalent qualification recognised by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) registrable with the Medical Board of Australia and either be a haematology JSAC Advanced Trainee or have completed training for the awards of FRACP and FRCPA.
