King’s Health Partners (KHP) is a pioneering collaboration between one of the world's leading research-led universities, King's College London, and three of London's most successful NHS Foundation Trusts: Guy's and St Thomas', King's College Hospital and South London and Maudsley. One of only six Academic Health Sciences Centres in the UK, KHP combines the best of research, clinical excellence and world-class teaching to deliver groundbreaking advances in healthcare.  Our partnership has over 36,000 staff and more than 25,000 students. Together, we provide 4.2million patient contacts each year and have an annual turnover of £3.1billion. Our university partner, King’s College London, is ranked in the top 20 universities in the world and having a world-class university at the heart of our partnership means we are able to attract the best clinicians and scientists from across the globe to deliver research, education and clinical services. 

The King's Haematological Malignancy Diagnostic Centre (HMDC) has been a Regional Centre for diagnostic services for over 20 years, providing Immunophenotyping, Cytogenetic, Molecular and Histopathology diagnostic services to Haematologists covering most of Southeast England.

The Oncology Cytogenetics laboratory at Kings provides an extensive karyotyping and FISH service for a range of haematological referrals with a team of six clinical scientists and seven technical staff. Referral numbers are currently >4000 samples per year and increasing.   The laboratory is seeking to employ an enthusiastic and experienced Clinical Scientist with knowledge of karyotyping and FISH; knowledge of advanced molecular technologies would be an advantage. The laboratory has a BioView Duet automated FISH scanner and a Metasystems Ikaros automated karyotyping system and workstations but ability to analyse chromosomes microscopically is also desirable. Candidates should be able to analyse, interpret and report their findings under the supervision of the Head of Laboratory and Principal Clinical Scientist, as well as take a role in the supervision of junior technical staff. Experience in oncology cytogenetics would be an advantage although training can be given to suitable applicants with a strong background in other cytogenetic fields. HCPC registration as a Clinical Scientist is required for employment at band 7 equivalence; however, candidates with extensive analytical experience will be considered at band 6 level and support provided towards registration with the HCPC.

Interviews will be held May 8th, 2018.
