Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.


Many of our recruitment programmes use Value Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

Clinical Scientist - two posts

An opportunity has arisen in our Radioisotope Physics Group, for an enthusiastic clinical scientist to join a dynamic and friendly team of scientists and technical staff in support of radioisotope services, including: nuclear medicine & PET/CT, nuclear cardiology, oncology etc.  We support a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment including two PET/CT systems, two diagnostic SPECT/CT systems, four further SPECT gamma cameras including a dedicated cardiac camera, and a full range of equipment supporting these services.  The installations of a digital PET, a CZT cardiac scanner, and a CZT gamma camera are also planned for later this year. 

As well as a wide range of diagnostic tests we perform a broad range of routine and advanced radionuclide therapies in dedicated unsealed source treatment suites.  Our group also provides support to a large number of clinical trials and this is an excellent opportunity to join a large collaborative research group with strong links to University of Oxford.

In addition to radioisotope physics, the section is involved in the provision of radiation protection support to all departments using radionuclides.

The postholder will join a team of clinical scientists and technical staff extending their experience in all areas of nuclear medicine & PET and have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of research activities.

Candidates for this post will have an honours degree in Physics or equivalent, and have State Registration as a Clinical Scientist, but candidates who are currently completing STP training in Imaging with Ionising Radiation will also be considered. 

The Churchill Hospital site is host to the Sir Richard Doll Cancer Epidemiology Centre, as well as the Radiobiology Research Institute and Oxford Cancer Research Centre.

Many villages and towns in Oxfordshire are on long standing lists of the best places to live near London, and a lot of them are very affordable.
