The place to work in pathology

We are looking for top talent to join the UK’s leading and fastest growing pathology company – a scientific organisation with a clinical purpose.

Working in partnership with our service partners, Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals, King’s College Hospital, Bedford NHS Hospital Trusts, and Princess Royal University Hospital we aim to set the standard for the future of pathology.


Currently looking at the end of your STP, considering where’s the best place to start my career?

Are you an established Clinical Scientist, asking yourself, am I getting the most out of my career?

We invite applications for a Clinical Scientist role from enthusiastic and motivated individuals with HCPC registration or those expecting to obtain registration within the next 6-12 months. STP trainees reaching the end of their training are actively encouraged to apply.

The Reference Biochemistry Laboratories at King’s College Hospital (part of Viapath Analytics LLP) provides specialist service delivery using latest technology in a variety of laboratories (Metabolic, Immunochemistry, Porphyrins, Gastrointestinal, Steroids, Diabetes, POCT, Toxicology and Trace Elements).

The successful candidate will be expected to participate in all areas of Reference Biochemistry including clinical authorisation. The post holder will also be required to provide scientific leadership to our Metabolic Laboratory which is responsible for the delivery of a broad range of complex, specialised diagnostic procedures including biogenic amines and markers of excess of alcohol intake, based predominantly on LC-MS and capillary electrophoresis techniques. We are looking at introducing quantitative FIT testing in light of recent NICE guidance in the near future and the post holder will be critical in delivering this advancement. You will also be expected to participate in original research / coordinate collaborative research (both locally and nationally).

Previous experience is not necessary as full training will be provided.  More important is enthusiasm and a willingness to learn! We have a number of training activities in place in the department to help individuals progress towards FRCPath examinations.

Interviews will be held February 15, 2019
