GI Physiology & Urodynamics Band 7, North Durham & Newcastle



Applications are invited for a Band 7 Clinical Scientist (or pre-registrant) to support the clinical and research portfolio in GI physiology and urodynamics. The post is based in the Clinical Measurement service of the Medical Physics Unit at the University Hospital of North Durham, but will also involve working in the Newcastle department.

You will perform and report on upper and lower GI physiology and participate in research and development projects at both sites. You will also be involved in the urodynamics service. You will support STP trainees in GI/Uro specialisms and opportunities may arise for teaching on the GI/Uro MSc based at Newcastle University. The Durham Unit has strong links with local gastrointestinal services, which have a national reputation for both clinical and research work, and you will be expected to be involved in multidisciplinary collaborations. The Newcastle department also has facilities for instrument development to support projects.

You must be an HCPC registered Clinical Scientist in a relevant science or engineering subject, or working towards completing registration, and have clinical measurement experience e.g. have completed or be nearing completion of the GI/Uro STP Training Scheme, or IPEM Training Scheme with a focus on Physiological Measurement. You will be supported in gaining Accredited Independent Healthcare Practitioner status via the Association of Gastrointestinal Physiologists. Training will be provided where necessary, depending upon previous training and experience.
