As a result of retirement and the expansion of whole genome sequencing, the dedicated paediatric Specialist Integrated Haematological & Malignancy Diagnostic Service (SIHMDS) based within the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust is recruiting a Band 8A Senior Clinical Scientist.

Applications are invited for our permanent position in cancer genomics. The enthusiastic and self-motivated scientist will join the paediatric SIHMDS team within the North Thames Genomic Laboratory Hub (NTGLH). Here, they will play a key role in ensuring the timely interpretation and reporting of urgent patient samples by leading the day-to-day operational management of section of the SIHMDS on a rotational basis with other Senior Clinical Scientists.

Main duties of the job

One of the objectives for the new Genomic Medicine Service is to streamline laboratory services, consolidating to enable delivery of high throughput testing to drive efficiencies. As such we will be looking to centralise laboratory services. We already benefit from some shared administrative and technical support by working alongside the Rare & inherited Disease Laboratory. All next generation sequencing (NGS) raw data is provided by our Royal Marsden colleagues in the NTGLH for interpretation here; RNA fusion panels, NGS panels and SNP array have replaced a large proportion of our traditional cytogenetic testing. We provide an entirely unique, forward-thinking and highly specialised integrated diagnostic service for investigation of paediatric haematological malignancies and paediatric solid tumours. We benefit from a wealth of opportunities for participation in research, clinical trials and service developments and are actively involved in various national trials such as Stratified Medicine Paediatrics and ALLTogether.

The SIHMDS and our referring clinicians have embraced whole genome sequencing; we have submitted the largest number of pediatric whole genome requests to the Genomic Medicine Service and numbers continue to increase. All scientists are encouraged to participate in multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings and genomic tumour advisory boards (GTABs) with clinical colleagues.
