We are looking for an experienced clinical scientist with MPE registration to join our Radiology Physics section. The successful candidate will join a team of Clinical Scientists and Technicians led by a Consultant Clinical Scientist. The post holder would be involved in our diagnostic x-ray quality assurance programme and support radiation protection across x-ray, nuclear medicine, external beam and unsealed source radiotherapy. The role will also involve teaching, patient dose measurement, protection surveys and research.

The work of the section also includes non-ionising radiation and it sits within the Department of Clinical Physics and Bio-Engineering giving plenty of opportunities for collaborative working. We have active collaborations with both Warwick University and Coventry University. Radiology Physics is based in a large teaching hospital in the West Midlands and provides diagnostic x-ray, MRI & ultrasound support and radiation protection advice across the whole of Coventry & Warwickshire, covering four acute hospital sites and several local private hospitals and veterinary practices.

We are situated close to the beautiful and historic Warwickshire countryside and ideally located for travel to any part of the country. Please get in touch if you interested, contact Chris Koller, Head of Radiology Physics, on 024 7696 7500. Candidates who do not yet have MPE registration may be considered at a lower band.
