Locations: NIS Porton Down, Salisbury, SP4 0JG

There is an exciting opportunity within the Technology Development Group at Porton Down for a microbiologist. In the event that, the successful applicant is already on a permanent PHE contract, they will retain their permanent status even though this is a fixed-term post.

The post holder will be involved in the routine screening of novel compounds for antimicrobial activity. Experience of working with sterile techniques (preferably in a microbiology discipline) is essential with experience in handling pathogens and using 96-well plate-based assays is highly desirable.

Good organisational and communication skills are essential as the post holder will be working as part of a dynamic team, with a range of academic and industrial partners. Appropriate further training and personal professional development will be positively encouraged.

The post would suit a recent graduate with some experience of working in a microbiology lab, or someone with previous experience looking to return to work after a career break.
