Infrastructure Technician

University of Sussex - Department of Physics and Astronomy

Fixed term for 1 year

Expected start date: As soon as possible

Applications are invited for an Infrastructure Technician in the school of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) at the University of Sussex. The post is a 1 year fixed term position to cover a wide variety of technical tasks within the school.

The role is split roughly into two separate components. The first involves assisting with the outreach activities of the two departments; Mathematics, and Physics and Astronomy.

The physics portion is by far the largest activity and the successful applicant will take primary responsibility for maintaining the outreach equipment, including storage, signing it out to demonstrators, maintaining the store room in a tidy state, assisting with maintenance, and generally being an extra set of hands for all outreach activities. The other half of the role is to help the school with a wide range of technical tasks under the direction of the technical services manager and will normally include assisting with the technical services provisions in both the teaching and research laboratories.

The School is committed to equality and diversity, and the physics department currently holds an Athena SWAN Bronze Award. Applications are particularly welcomed from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in posts in science and engineering at Sussex. Informal inquiries about the post may be addressed to the technical services supervisor, Dr. Steve Churchwell ( 01273 876606).
