Detail information about job Laboratory Technician. Terms and conditions vacancy

We are seeking a Laboratory Technician to join Professor Paul Bowness and the Inflammatory Arthritis Consortium (IAMC). The IAMC is an international consortium of world leading scientists from a number of complementary disciplines with the ultimate goal of manipulating the human microbiota to treat inflammatory arthritis. You will be based at the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, at the Botnar Research Centre (3 days per week) and Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology (2 days per week), Oxford.

You will join a dynamic and successful group studying immune regulation in the joint and how this breaks down in arthritis. You will provide technical support to the Bowness group at the Botnar Research Centre and to the wider IAMC at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology providing technical and administrative support to ensure the smooth processing of samples in the Bowness laboratory (3 days per week) and for wider consortium (2 days per week). You will be responsible for processing consortium blood samples and updating databases, performing and optimising flow (and mass) cytometry and ELISA testing and interpretation of results, spotting discrepancies and re-running experiments where necessary. You will join a rota for the DNA and RNA processing of faecal samples as well as writing and reviewing protocols to optimise sample processing for the consortium.

You will be educated to at least A level (or equivalent qualification in science) and you will have experience of working in laboratory environment. You will have a strong attention to detail, with the ability to organise samples and record results in a clear and organised fashion, as well as an ability to write up and record experimental results and discuss these with relevant members of the team. Good communication skills and ability to present results clearly and logically as well as previous experience of working with databases are essential. Previous experience of working with hazardous chemicals and previous experience of flow cytometry, mass cytometry or ELISA is desirable.

This is a full-time fixed-term post for 2 years in the first instance.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement as part of your online application.
