We have a fantastic opportunity for HCPC registered radiographers or RCT registered clinical technologists to develop their experience and expertise in all areas of radiotherapy physics, working as senior dosimetrist.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to contribute to delivery of our stereotactic services, IntraOperative Electron Radiotherapy service (for which we are the first provider in the UK), as well helping to drive forward our IMRT, IGRT and adaptive radiotherapy programme to ensure the best treatment option is available to all patients.  We are equipped with 6 linacs and 2 dedicated planning CTs.

We have recently gone clinical with our second Elekta Versa HD with Exactrac imaging system and have commenced the replacement of machine number 3 of a rolling replacement programme of all of our existing linacs. Planning is supported by Pinnacle treatment planning system. 

We provide a comprehensive Brachytherapy service including MR guided interstitial HDR treatments for gynaecological malignancies, HDR and seed treatments for prostate malignancies. 

We have a comprehensive clinical trials portfolio and research projects ongoing in areas of imaging and dosimetry.

Work would include complex treatment planning/checking, mould room support and quality control.  Individuals will be encouraged to develop site specific interest/expertise and to contribute to service development, teaching and training.

The department has a diverse, friendly workforce which actively engages in CPD such as monthly Journal Club and Departmental Seminars to share learning.

Appointment at a lower grade would be considered for less experienced applicants.

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) is one of England's largest acute teaching trusts. We've recently been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC and in the latest national NHS Staff Survey we ranked seventh in the country for staff engagement, and fourth best nationally for our proportion of staff saying that they would recommend the hospital as a place to work or to receive care. One of our main objectives has been to become a top ten research trust, with the pharmacy department being an integral part of achieving this.

Closing date for applications will be Wednesday 27 February.
