The post affords opportunity to work with three Consultant Microbiologists in a major department in one of the larger Trusts in the East of England.

The Microbiology department provides an extensive range of diagnostic microbiological services and a Consultant-led advisory service for the diagnosis, treatment, and control of infection.
