The University of Bradford is looking to appoint a lead teaching technician to support the technical needs of the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences.

You will be either educated to a degree or diploma level or have an equivalent level of experience working in a technical role in the optical or related industries. Recent post-qualification experience working in an optical laboratory and experience with a wide range of optical equipment relevant to optometric practice is desirable.

This is an opportunity to contribute to the development of optometric education in a University setting. You will join a well-established, and recently completely re-equipped Optometry program in the Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Bradford where you will have a key role in supporting the technical requirements of both teaching laboratories and a commercial eye clinic.
