We are recruiting for a Genetic Technologist post at band 4 that would suit candidates with previous experience in molecular genetics. The post holder will be responsible for delivering the CE-IVD laboratory workflow of the NIPT laboratory (SAFE Test) including DNA extraction and next generation sequencing techniques. You would also be expected to assist with additional duties relating to training and quality management. Attention to detail, with a conscientious and hardworking ethos are essential requirements. You will be working under supervision but will also be expected to train other members of the team when required. Good verbal and written communication skills are also essential. Knowledge and experience of NGS is advantageous. 

The laboratory at St George's is fully merged and restructured. It works closely and is fully integrated with clinical genetics and is developing joint pathology services with the Pathology hub on site. It covers a population of approximately 3.5 million, and functions as part of the SE England network of laboratories serving a larger population. It is also part of the South London Genomic Medicine Centre recruiting to the 100,000 genome sequencing project. Several specialised services are offered nationally and internationally. The laboratory is spacious, modern and well-equipped with close research links. New innovative developments are underway to enhance the services offered and the lab is committed to moving into new areas of molecular testing for genetics, prenatal testing and pathology. The lab has a commitment to the personal and professional development of staff, and there will be opportunity for rotation into the different GT roles within the lab.
