We are looking for an enthusiastic medical physicist to join our PET imaging team. The PET Centre is part of both Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College London. We run a clinical PET service, in parallel with an extensive programme of clinical research. Facilities include a cyclotron, radiochemistry labs, 3 PET-CT scanners and a PET-MR scanner. A total redevelopment of the cyclotron and radiochemistry facilities is currently underway.

The purpose of this post is to provide scientific and technical expertise to support the operation and development of the clinical and research PET scanning activities in the PET imaging centre, working as a member of a team of medical physicists. Key roles will include participation in the medical physics scanning rota, development of clinical and research procedures, data processing and handling of PET-CT and PET-MR data, writing/documenting software tools and utilities, and providing radiation protection support to the department. There will also be opportunities to contribute to the extensive teaching program provided by the division.
