These two new permanent full-time Consultant Immunologist posts in Cork University Hospital offer attractive prospects for any potential candidates. The size and range of services currently in place at CUH, the quality and skill of existing laboratory staff, and the already-present adult and paediatric expertise in the area (UCC Professorial academic consultant appointment in Medicine, Clinical Allergy Appointment in Paediatrics and a scientist Professorial appointment in Immunology based at UCC Departments of Medicine, Microbiology and APC Microbiome Ireland), as well as the potential to forge academic links with the School of Medicine, and affiliated research centres such as APC Microbiome Ireland and INFANT are all positive features on which to build this essential service in the region. UCC is in advanced stages of development of a Post-Graduate Programme in Clinical Allergy and Immunology due to commence in academic year 2022 – 2023 which will also provide opportunities for appointees wishing to continue and develop academic activity within their appointments.
