Research Technician

University of Birmingham - School of Biosciences

Fixed term until 31st of July 2019

Full time starting salary is normally in the range £21,904 to £23,532. With potential progression once in post to £27,242 a year.

The post holder will join the Host and Pathogen Interactions group: a large and dynamic research team who investigate virulence mechanisms in human fungal pathogens. This is a critical position within the team, in which the post holder will be responsible for underpinning a range of research activities and ensuring consistent and efficient delivery of research programs. 

Specifically, a major (approximately 65%) aspect of the role will be to lead on health and safety, ordering, administration and governance issues associated with coordinating an internationally leading research team. Exceptional organisational and administrative skills are therefore essential for this role, along with clear communication skills and the ability to liaise closely with a diverse range of colleagues at all levels of seniority.

In addition, the post holder will be expected to spend around 35% of their time engaged in laboratory based research activities.  Specifically, routine microbiology and/or tissue culture procedures will form a major component of this part of the job and expertise in either or both approaches is important.
