Research position available in Adelaide, Australia

Research Fellow Position

Colorectal Unit, Royal Adelaide Hospital


The Colorectal Unit at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Adelaide, Australia offers a part time research/part time clinical position annually, which is still available for 2016. The position is best suited to a candidate who has the FRACS (or equivalent) and an interest in colorectal surgery. We offer the opportunity to undertake a research project, either leading to publications or, if desired, a Master of Surgery through the University of Adelaide. The clinical component involves attending the colorectal cancer MDT weekly and IBD MDT fortnightly,  working with the clinical fellow when required to cover theatre, leave cover, some  weekend ward rounds,  general surgical take one Sunday per month and regular colorectal assisting in private (usually three lists per week).


The Royal Adelaide Hospital is a 650 bed tertiary referral hospital in the centre of Adelaide. The RAH Colorectal Unit comprises five consultant surgeons, a colorectal fellow, an accredited advanced surgical trainee, an RMO and three interns. The unit provides specialist colorectal surgical services and contributes to the emergency general surgical cover. Per annum the unit performs approximately 275 major colorectal cancer resections (open, laparoscopic and robotic), 40 IBD resections, 50 TEMs procedures and around 250 -300 colonoscopies, as well as minor anorectal and pelvic floor procedures. We run a rectal bleeding clinic and a pelvic floor clinic.


This unit is extensively involved in a number of ongoing research activities including a prospective audit of colorectal cancer surgery, molecular biologic aspects of CRC (especially MSI and serrated pathways), serum biomarkers of colorectal malignancy (in conjunction with the CSIRO) and outcomes following rectal cancer surgery. We have several potential projects for a research fellow and the research infrastructure and experience to support the candidate towards a satisfying and productive year.


The position attracts a $30,000pa tax free scholarship. The private assisting and locum RAH covers provide an income of approximately $40,000 pa. If you are interested please contact me on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 0417720080
