The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is seeking a number of Research Sonographers to play an integral role in the Pregnancy Outcome Predictions Study Part 2 (POPS2), an observational cohort study building on the work of the hugely successful POPS.

We would welcome applications from either Sonographers registered with HCPC or Research Midwives registered with NMC.  It is essential that you hold a Postgraduate Diploma/ Certificate in Medical Ultrasound or equivalent.

You will join a multidisciplinary team participating in research delivery and personally participate in the delivery of a high-quality ultrasound service, carrying out fetal anomaly scans and third trimester growth scans. The University is keen to support your personal and professional development; so this is an excellent opportunity to learn, grow and gain experience in a research environment.

You will independently undertake ultrasound examinations, communicating the results to patients and other staff in accordance with the study protocol. You will also make appropriate clinical decisions about further actions or referrals in accordance with local and National guidelines.

Effectively performing this role requires a high level of professionalism, and for you to act as a source of expertise to other members of the study team.

This appointment requires an Honorary Research Contract. This is an integrated appointment between the University and the relevant NHS Trust/Body ("NHS Trust").
