Detail information about job Research Technician. Terms and conditions vacancy

A new position is required within the Division of Biosciences to provide technical support to post-doctoral researchers on a Wellcome Trust funded project in Prof. Linda Partridge’s Molecular Biology laboratory and Drosophila fly facility. The technician will participate in the work to uncover the mechanisms of ageing. The role holder will have specialised knowledge to be able to set up equipment and run experiments and tests for the applicable research area. The post is largely research based, involving data gathering and monitoring, in addition to setting up and carefully maintaining transgenic fly stocks.

You will have the ability to plan, organise and perform routine work (fly culturing, molecular techniques) with high levels of consistency and accuracy. Basic knowledge of mathematics, statistics, and anatomy and knowledge of recent scientific publications in the field is desirable.
