Middlesbrough is an industrial city in North East England along the North Sea coast on the Tees River in North Yorkshire. Approximately 142,000 people live in Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough is close to the North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire Dales National Parks and the Yorkshire coast. The city has highly acclaimed schools and is easily accessible by a motorway network (A1M) and by train. The Lake district is less than 2 hours away and Leeds Bradford and Newcastle international airports are at a one-hour distance.

It concerns a large academic hospital. This hospital has approximately 1,000 beds and a large trauma unit, a 3T MRI scanner, a radiotherapy centre and an IVF clinic. It is one of the largest hospitals in England. The Respiratory Care department has, among others, 29 clinical beds, an RSU (Respiratory Support Unit) for non-invasive ventilation, specialized nursing teams (tuberculosis and malignancies) and a Respiratory Physiology laboratory.


On behalf of the above-mentioned academic hospital, we are looking for two pulmonologists for permanent, full-time positions. These positions are also available for newly qualified pulmonologists.

The Respiratory Care team consists of 6 other pulmonologists. Together, you will treat both acute and chronic lung patients. It is important to mention that you will partake in the Respiratory Care on-call roster. In addition to your clinical work, you will contribute to the research in the department by participating or by setting up a project yourself. You will also be actively involved in managing the department.

Candidates with an interest in interstitial lung diseases and/or non-invasive ventilation could complement the current team well. For this function, it is essential to master a number of skills, including performing bronchoscopies and pulmonary function tests.
