Applications are invited for this post within the Radiation Physics team at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
We provide a range of physics services to diagnostic x-ray, nuclear medicine, MRI, laser, UV & ultrasound users within the Trust and at a range of external organisations. The largest single component of our work is diagnostic x-ray support but most of us work in more than one area. Your role will be determined to some degree by your interests, abilities and experience as well as the needs of the service. Appropriate training will be provided where required.
A full driving licence and use of a suitable vehicle is required as the post involves travel between hospitals and other customers (reasonable adjustments will be considered).Main duties of the job
The successful applicant will either: already be HCPC registered as a Clinical Scientist (specialising in radiation physics) or convince us that they will be very soon OR have significant full time equivalent experience performing and writing reports of physics QC tests for a wide range of medical diagnostic x-ray equipment which will include supervising others doing the same for significant time.
Applicants who do not meet the requirements above may be considered for appointment at a lower level.About us
