AHCS – Professional Group Lead Vacancies

An interesting and exciting opportunity has arisen for four senior scientists to become the Academy’s Professional Group Leads for Genomics, Blood Sciences, Clinical Bioinformatics and Clinical Engineering (Rehabilitation Engineering and Reconstructive Science).
