Deputy head, Non-Ionising Radiation

Clinical Scientist Band 8b

A unique and exciting opportunity in Medical Physics at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust for a registered senior clinical scientist specialised in Non-Ionising radiation, and in particular ultrasound and ideally optical equipment (laser and/or non-laser).

 Guy’s and St Thomas’ is one of the largest hospital trusts in the country, with a staff of over 9,500, a turnover of over £600 million and ¾ million patient contacts a year. The Trust comprises two of London’s oldest and best known teaching hospitals. The hospitals have a long history, dating back almost 900 years, and have been at the forefront of medical progress and innovation since they were founded. Both hospitals have built on these traditions and continue to have a reputation for excellence and innovation.

The Trust has been leading into introducing innovative multidisciplinary management of ultrasound equipment, and the Deputy Head will have a key role in supporting the Head in this transformation. There is also the possibility of being involved in research areas such as High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and High Frequency Ultrasound Imaging, Skin Imaging and developing new research streams in NIR.

The team also runs a UKAS accredited laboratory and is planning on expanding its work on optical equipment to cover both laser and non-laser system; therefore experience on optical equipment is welcome.

The successful applicant will have an expert knowledge of ultrasound and some knowledge of optical equipment.

Applicants will be expected to have understanding and appreciation of the organisation’s values.

Applicants with less expertise might be considered for employment at 8a level.
