Respiratory diseases remain major causes of morbidity and mortality.  In King’s College London, our vision is to build multi-disciplinary excellence in this area. The School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences seeks to appoint a leading clinician scientist as Chair in Respiratory Medicine.

Based at the Guy’s Hospital campus in the centre of London, this leadership post is embedded in a collaborative environment rich in scholarship and clinical resources and committed to developing a programme of international stature in understanding respiratory diseases and advancing treatments.

The planned merger of the Guy’s & St Thomas’ (GSTT), and Royal Brompton and Harefield (RBH) NHS Trusts, and integration of respiratory medicine across KHP, together with the preparation of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre bid in 2021, where respiratory medicine is anticipated to be prominent, reflects our strategic and wide-reaching investment in respiratory medicine.
