Job Description

Senior Biomedical Scientist - Immunology

Department of Immunology, Manchester Royal Infirmary, UK

We may decide to close this vacancy earlier than the published closing date if sufficient applications are received.

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 20,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of nine hospitals across six separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider

We are about to recruit a Senior Biomedical Scientist. If you are suitably qualified with appropriate experience then consider working for the Greater Manchester Immunology Service.

We’re the first immunology service in the UK to hold UKAS/ISO 15189 accreditation and have continually expanded our scope and repertoire of tests to become one of the biggest regional immunology centres in the country. The service is constantly evolving; we are in the process of implementing a managed service contract for new equipment and pre-analytics as well as being at the forefront of electronic requesting and reporting both to GPs and clinicians. The service is about to step up another gear, playing a key role in the implementation of the Greater Manchester Haematological Cancer Diagnostic Partnership (HCDP) and this post is a great opportunity for individuals with appropriate skills to contribute to this new development.

Working as one of five senior biomedical scientists you’ll provide a high quality scientific service, assist with the management of a section of our laboratory and the development of the diagnostic service the department provides. This is a challenging role that will enable you to develop and widen your technical, managerial and supervisory skills. 

To apply, you should be a HCPC registered biomedical scientist with FIBMS, MSc or equivalent. You will have prior experience in immunology, ideally in cellular investigations including flow cytometry and immunophenotyping of leukaemias and lymphomas. Moreover, you should be ambitious and keen to develop your skills.

The Trust reserves the right to close this post once a sufficient number of applications have been submitted. It is encouraged that you complete the application at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment. Please note that applications are accepted by completion of our on-line application form. We cannot accept CV's. Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust encourages equal opportunities and operates an Equal Opportunities Policy. All individuals regardless of race, age, disability, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marriage and civil partnership are encouraged to apply for this post.For further details / informal visits contact:
