MT / MLS Laboratory Supervisor, Generalist

Kingsport, TN · Job ID: 9655 · · Industry: Laboratory Management

Are you a Tennessee-licensed Medical Technologist or Lab Supervisor looking to take your leadership skills to the next level? Does the idea of working in a well run, stable, and challenging lab environment appeal to you? 

Lighthouse Lab Services is representing a Physician Laboratory that operates as part of a hospital /academic organization.  This lab is in need of a Clinical Laboratory Supervisor to oversee techs across all testing areas including Point of Care. If you’re a junior-level Lab Supervisor or Medical Technologist with the willingness and commitment to maintain lab operations in one of Eastern Tennessee's most charming and beautiful areas, we'd love to hear from you!

This role is a supervisor position for general testing, and as such, the person in this role will have the opportunity to supervise three lab techs and around 10 phlebotomists across disciplines within the laboratory including chemistry, hematology, urinalysis, coag, molecular (stool) and allergy testing, among others.  This position really requires a jack of all trades who feels comfortable with most of the core lab testing and can be easily trained on the rest.  

This position also requires an individual who is willing to pitch in to help the team on the bench when required.  This is not a large laboratory, so the contribution of all involved is vital.  This includes but is not limited to:

  • performing tests or assays required to help cover workflow
  • review monthly QA and QC requirements 
  • assist with training, assessment, and performance of techs.

Basic Preferred Profile:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Laboratory Science or related

  • 3+ years of experience as an MT generalist in the lab is required.
