A Clinical Embryologist is sought to contribute to the strategic direction of the Aberdeen Fertility Centre (AFC) Embryology and Andrology Laboratories, provide scientific support to the team and provide clinical embryology and andrology services within the legislation of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology (HFE) Act and the HFE Authority Code of Practice, whilst maintaining professional registration with the Association of Clinical Embryologists.
The Aberdeen Fertility Centre provides IVF/ICSI, and frozen embryo transfer treatment and also has an extensive egg and sperm donation programme. The Centre has been providing patients in Grampian, Highland, Orkney and Shetland with a full range of fertility services for over 25 years. The Centre has been involved in many notable Scottish achievements (first live birth following IVF treatment, first egg donation live birth, first frozen embryo live birth, first ICSI live birth, first live birth following surgical sperm retrieval and first ISO certified unit in Scotland). The advertised post therefore affords the successful candidate the opportunity to join a clinic with a long-standing history of excellence in both clinical services and research.
Applicants should have a Life science degree, and either be HCPC registered as a Clinical Scientist (Embryology) or working towards State Registration via the STP route and almost near completion. Laboratory experience should ideally include ICSI and cryopreservation techniques including vitrification.
The post holder will also be expected to keep abreast of recent scientific and other developments in assisted reproduction techniques, including any new legislation that may affect laboratory operation, and ensure compliance with new legislation.
Active research programmes exist in reproductive medicine and as such you should have a demonstrable interest in research. All research will comply with Aberdeen University Guidelines on Research Governance.
Salary will be at the appropriate point on the Grade 6 salary scale and negotiable with placement according to qualifications and experience.
