Applications are invited from State Registered Clinical Scientists in Genomics; scientists close to registration will also be considered.

The scientist will be joining the team at the North Thames Rare Disease Laboratory Hub at Great Ormond Street Hospital. We are seeking enthusiastic, self-motivated scientists with experience of clinical molecular genetic service delivery and a sound understanding of molecular techniques including variant assessment. Accomplished communication and organisational skills are required.

The successful candidate will support an area of our core, specialist or prenatal services dependent on experience, the GLH having been awarded 11 specialisms in the Genomic Medicine Service. We support trained scientists who wish to adopt flexible and/or remote working patterns.

The Rare Disease Laboratory has an establishment of approximately 120 staff including clinical scientists, translational scientists, bioinformaticians, technologists and administrators. Along with the Clinical Genetics team we form a strategic Unit within Great Ormond Street Hospital and provide North London with a Regional Genetics Service serving a population of approximately 10 million.  The laboratory provides an in-house diagnostic service for molecular and cytogenetic testing. Molecular testing includes an extensive next generation sequencing repertoire; we also provide national and international services for non-invasive prenatal diagnosis, deafness, craniofacial, metabolic and immune deficiency disorders. Cytogenetic testing is provided for both prenatal and postnatal samples using microarray, karyotyping, FISH and MLPA. We are also involved in a number of collaborative research and development projects with colleagues at the UCL Institute of Child Health and Institute of Neurology and are a leading contributor to the 100,000 Genomes project.
