Healthcare Computer Scientist – Medical Physics

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

You will participate in the research and development activities to support the newly funded Biomedical Research Centre for Translational Neurosciences. In addition you will help to support the computer systems used in the clinical environment and assist in the development and implementation of new solutions to clinical problems.

The primary focus of the post is to provide computing expertise to the Scientific Computing group and operate as a core member of the Clinical Research Systems Team (CReST) to support the Biomedical Research Centre. This will include working on systems integration and secure database applications to allow the seamless application of informatics technologies within both the university and hospital environments.

The Scientific Computing group offers services across the whole of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and increasingly within the University as well. This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic and creative candidate to make the transition into health informatics from either the research domain or industry. 

Ideally the successful applicant will have a good honours degree in science/engineering and experience of developing software as part of a team. A good understanding of Microsoft Dot.NET technologies is required, and some experience of Java would be an advantage. In addition experience of developing and maintaining database applications is required and experience of MSSQL and MySQL is desirable. The ability to work easily with and support clinical professionals, including scientists and medical staff, will also be a requirement for this post.  

What you can expect from Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
You will be working for an organization, which values and respects all of its staff and the community it serves. The Trust is a leader in the NHS and research sectors and provides excellent benefits for its staff. This includes commitments to professional development but also many policies to support employees in balancing their personal and professional lives.
