Dear Histonetters,
we are re-advertising an exciting opportunity for a senior histology 
technician in Bristol, UK to help us develop our new veterinary 
histopathology laboratory. The details are posted below.

Best regards to you all,

Bridge Pathology Ltd. is a recently registered company located in 
Bristol, that will specialize in the processing of biopsy specimens 
submitted by veterinary surgeons.
We are searching for a dynamic and enthusiastic senior histology 
technician to work with the Director of Pathology to set up, manage and 
develop the histopathology and immunohistochemistry laboratory 
facilities and oversee the day-to-day operation of the histopathology 
and immunohistochemistry laboratories. Duties will include routine 
preparation of histological and immunohistochemical-stained sections of 
submitted biopsy tissues for diagnostic and research purposes.

We will receive biopsy samples posted in from veterinary surgeons in 
practice. Tissues will be examined histologically and reports generated 
by veterinary pathologists, with an emphasis on providing the veterinary 
surgeon with as much specific, detailed and clinically useful 
information as possible. Where applicable, histochemical and 
immunohistochemical methods will be used to characterize the tissues 
further. In addition, samples received through the laboratory will be 
used for clinical research studies to further our understanding of 
animal disease and to develop prognostic and diagnostic assays to 
benefit veterinary patients. Results from these research studies will be 
submitted for publication in the scientific  literature.

We hope to establish Bridge Pathology Ltd. as the UK's premier 
diagnostic and research-focused veterinary histopathology laboratory.

A successful applicant will have:
1) At least 3 years experience preparing tissue specimens for routine 
histopathological examination.
2) At least 2 years experience preparing histochemical and 
immunohistochemical stained sections.
3) Meticulous working habits with meticulous documentation of samples 
and processing thereof.
4) Experience developing laboratory standard operating procedures.
5) The ability to work well in a close-knit, friendly team.
6) The ability to work efficiently and to tight deadlines.
7) Good communication skills.
8) Basic computer skills.

Application closing date: 9th July, 2008.

Salary: £25-28K + bonus
