This role provides an exciting opportunity for an experienced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) radiographer to take on a senior post within our specialist Perinatal Imaging Department - part of both King's College London's Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust. The Department has a dedicated imaging suite within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at St Thomas’ Hospital, as well as access to state-of-the-art MRI systems within our Imaging Clinical Research Facility. These include 7T, 3T, 1.5T, 0.55T and 0.064T systems, with dedicated RF coils, positioning systems and image acquisition methods used to facilitate in-utero fetal, neonatal and paediatric imaging. Our work includes providing a clinical fetal and neonatal MRI service for patients from across South East London, as well as national referrals from other UK centres. Equally important is our strong portfolio of clinical research studies with collaborators from the University, Hospital, and other institutions.


The post-holder will ensure excellence in clinical and research imaging by performing MRI and other related activities to a high standard. They will provide high quality care before, during and after imaging procedures, and take on research tasks as requested by the research lead. The post-holder will be responsible to the Perinatal MRI Superintendent Radiographer, and will help to ensure that perinatal imaging activities are aligned with clinical and research governance standards. They will be a key member of a multi-disciplinary team to provide an efficient, effective and timely MRI service to patients and research participants.


Key requirements for this post are prior experience of advanced MRI techniques, and commitment to excellent patient/participant care. The post-holder must have excellent MR safety knowledge and the ability to supervise non-MR-authorised personnel within the MR controlled access areas. Familiarity with fetal, neonatal or paediatric imaging techniques is welcomed, but not essential for a candidate who is keen to extend their skills in these areas. Applicants who have experience of supporting imaging research studies will be preferred. Development opportunities are available for those who show good aptitude to further their clinical and research skills in the perinatal field, with support available from very strong scientific and academic teams at the University and the Hospital.


The post will be based at St Thomas’ Hospital and the post holder will be required to work flexibly between 8:30am and 8:00pm, as requested. Some weekend work will also be required.
