Cyted is seeking a Cytoscreener to join our amazing team on a fixed term basis. The Cytoscreener’s role is to participate in the screening and analysis of digital images of oesophageal cell samples to detect any abnormality in the cell structure that may show signs of pre-cancerous changes, disease or, very rarely, cancer. The aim of the screening is to try and identify the first signs of oesophageal cancer early, so that the disease can be prevented from spreading. Doctors use the results of the screening to diagnose and treat patients.

The Cytoscreener will work under the supervision of our team of Pathologists led by Maria O’Donovan, Luis Beltran and Alexia Tsigka. The role holder will follow strict quality control procedures. Full training and support will be provided.

  • Bringing to the attention of a Pathologist any results thought to be abnormal.
  • Coding results based on the degree of abnormality observed.
  • Completing online records of the results.
  • Sending notification of the screening results to the pathologists.
