Department of Plant Sciences, South Parks Road, Oxford

We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced Computer Teaching Support Officer and proactive IT technician to support computer teaching on the Biology degree course, which is delivered from a newly built dedicated IT suite situated in the Department of Plant Sciences and supported by the Department of Zoology infrastructure. The postholder will play a pivotal role in ensuring that the IT suite provides an optimal learning environment for all that use the facility. The IT suite comprises 60 thin-client workstations that connect to a range of teaching servers including Microsoft's Remote Desktop Session Hosts. The teaching servers provide a unified and consistent environment to the students and other users of the facility. A wide range of software is installed on the servers, including general office productivity software, genome analysis packages, open-source statistical applications and phylogenetic programs.

Biology is a single honours degree course taught jointly by the Departments of Plant Sciences and Zoology. The course combines traditional, underpinning topics such as animal and plant systematics and relationships, with modern developments and techniques in all spheres of biology, from the molecular and cellular to the whole organismal and ecological. We pride ourselves on the fact that very few mainstream topics of biology in its widest sense are completely unavailable to our undergraduates and all the major research areas in the Departments of Plant Sciences and Zoology contribute to the Biology course.

The post will be situated in both the Department of Plant Sciences and the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford. Excellent benefits include 38 days’ leave. A full-time, permanent position

Informal enquiries should be directed to

The closing date for applications in 12.00 noon on Friday 20th September 2019.
