Research Technician

University of East Anglia - Faculty of Science, School of Biological Sciences

The School of Biological Sciences is seeking a Research Technician who will join a NERC-funded project to investigate, using the fruit fly, the consequences for females of responding to the social and sexual environment. We will test the contribution of female plasticity to sexual competition overall and reveal the mechanisms by which females can sense competition and signal competitiveness to future generations. The candidate will assist with large-scale life history tests on fruit flies, including studies of sexual behaviour in genome-sequenced lines. 

Applicants must have a good honours degree or equivalent in a relevant area and be able to satisfy all other essential criteria outlined in the person specification for this post. 

The post is available immediately on a full-time, fixed term period until 17 September 2020.  

The University is a Bronze Athena Swan Award holder, currently working towards Silver.
