Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a small team lead by Dr Fernando Constantino-Casas, primarily based in the histology/teaching laboratory with some responsibility to cover in the post mortem facility. The work is interesting and varied and will require the successful applicant to have excellent organisational skills and be flexible in their approach.
The work in the histology laboratory will include processing biopsy specimens, post mortem material, and other histological material. You will also be required to maintain audio-visual and electronic aids for teaching undergraduates and postgraduates and will be expected to provide an excellent service to the teaching laboratory, which will include managing the slide archive and museum specimens, setting up and assisting with practical classes in gross pathology, histology, parasitology, microbiology, and preparation of the room for teaching purposes of the Final Vet MB course.
Cover in the post mortem room will be required intermittently. This work will involve keeping the post mortem facility clean and running smoothly, and, more specifically, in assisting the duty pathologist with necropsy examinations, assisting in the set-up and delivery of practical classes, and arranging for disposal of biological/clinical waste. An ability to follow standard operating procedures and risk assessments is essential. Heavy lifting is sometimes required, and sharp instruments and hazardous chemicals are used on a regular basis. Familiarity with Health and Safety procedures in a working environment is desirable.
Applicants should be educated to GCSE level in English, Maths and a Science subject. An ability to work autonomously, attention to detail, the ability to work effectively and enthusiastically in a team, and excellent IT skills, are essential requirements. Applicants must be comfortable communicating with staff at all levels. Whilst prior experience of working in a histology laboratory is desirable, training in histological sectioning and staining may be offered in post if a candidate displays an aptitude for all other aspects of this role and has the essential skills listed above. Training will be given in all other aspects of the work.
