An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated person to join our large multi-disciplinary cancer research team in GI and Lymphoma as a biological specimen coordinator and data manager. An active interest in cancer research, and the ability to work semi-independently within a multi-disciplinary team are essential.

You will be mainly based at the Sutton site but may need to work across sites when needed. You may also need to support the GI/Lymphoma team with the possibility of occasional visits to other hospitals to retrieve tissue. You will need to interact on a daily basis with clinicians, nurses and scientists on the research team and outside the hospital and it is, therefore, vital that you possess excellent verbal and written communication skills. You will be working under the supervision of  the Lead Translational Research Manager & Senior Biological Specimen Coordinators to ensure that cancer tissue samples and bloods are collected, processed and managed according to protocol to support and aid the unit’s large portfolio of cancer research trials. You must therefore be highly organised and meticulous in your working methods.

During your time in this post, you will be able to develop a valuable set of transferable skills, and in particular there is the opportunity to be trained in basic laboratory techniques and the possibility of undertaking training in patient consent.

Appointment will be on a fixed term contract for 11.5 months in the first instance and will be subject to ongoing review at that time.

Interviews to be held on the 27th February.
