Can you provide technical support to clinical research studies? Do you have excellent analytical, organisational and time-management skills? Do you want to be part of a world leading research team?

This will involve liaising and coordinating with several members of the multidisciplinary team including appropriate medical and nursing staff.

You will have previous laboratory experience (research or routine) and tissue handling experience. You will also have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and ability to organise own work to meet set deadlines. The post is available to start immediately.
