Are you an early career researcher looking for a challenge?   Do you have a background in Molecular or Cellular Biology?  Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

We are looking for an experienced Research Technician to support research projects and laboratories across the School of Molecular & Cellular Biology. The candidate will be required to assist with the day to day running of laboratory spaces and provide project specific support to ongoing projects within the School. A good general understanding of bacteriology, structural biology, cell biology or virology techniques would be advantageous, with the ability to pick up new techniques as required. Experience in training others in scientific techniques or explaining standard laboratory procedures is essential. You will also have an understanding of biological and chemical hazards, safe handling and disposal, with the ability to work safely. Past experience in a research or teaching laboratory is essential. You should be highly motivated, organised, and able to communicate and collaborate as part of a team.
