The Department of Histopathology is looking to appoint an HCPC Registered Band 5 BMS who can demonstrate recent experience in a wide range of techniques and histology specialties.

We invite applications from enthusiastic and eager candidates to integrate into an evolving laboratory. Preference will be shown to candidates who are able to demonstrate good knowledge and skills throughout the Histopathology laboratory.

Both Bradford and Airedale sites have cut-up facilities, but the majority of processing work is completed on the Airedale site. We provide a comprehensive clinical and diagnostic service.

The operational aspect of the laboratory is facilitated by automated staining and the use of BOND III immunohistochemical staining platforms. Digital scanners have recently been installed and it is anticipated that the laboratory will integrate digital pathology into its’ working practices. All work is tracked using Leica Cerebro tracking system. A non- gynae cytology service is also provided. The successful candidate should have experience of most aspects of the Histopathology Laboratory but training will be provided where necessary.

Staffing within the department is managed on a rotational basis between the hours of 08:00 and 18:00. Candidates should be willing to work full time hours within these.
