About the Project
The University of Leeds, together with Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust, are embarking on an extensive research program to better understand the mechanisms responsible for reflux, particularly proximal reflux, its delayed clearance from the oesophagus (and indeed that of boluses swallowed), along with aspiration in patients with lung diseases, and how this relates to symptoms, disease severity and progression, so that in the future the management of GER may be better “individualised” to the patient.
This project is therefore particularly suited to medically qualified doctors, with a training/interest in respiratory medicine and/or gastroenterology. This project would involve the following techniques oesophageal high resolution impedance manometry and analysis using the Chicago Classification, pharyngeal manometry, 24-hr oesophageal pH-impedance, sputum collection, pulmonary function testing.
You should hold a strong first degree equivalent to at least a UK upper second class honours degree in a relevant subject area.
The Faculty minimum requirements for candidates whose first language is not English are:
• British Council IELTS - score of 6.5 overall, with no element less than 6.0
• TOEFL iBT - overall score of 92 with the listening and reading element no less than 21, writing element no less than 22 and the speaking element no less than 23.
