Job description

 The School of Life Sciences at the University of Sussex is at the forefront of research in the UK. In the recent Research Excellence Framework assessment (REF 2021), 100% of our Impact cases in Biological Sciences and Chemistry were rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. The School has received substantial recent University investment and is embarking on an exciting and extensive, muti-million pound refurbishment and improvement project.

This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, hard-working individual to join a small team of technicians supporting multiple prep-room laboratories within the Life and Health Sciences Technical Group.

  • You will have a positive proactive approach which requires initiative, team working, good dexterity and excellent communication and interpersonal skills to work in this fast paced, busy environment.
  • You will take pride in your work and be highly organised with a positive and flexible approach to work to deal with a variety of requests and tasks.
  • It would be beneficial if you had experience of providing a service in biology, biochemistry, chemistry or similar discipline.
  • You should be able to provide a consistently high level of background support to the other technicians within the School.
  • An ability as a handy person to assist with building issues (under supervision) would be an advantage.

Attention to detail is key. The post holder should have a good knowledge of chemistry/biochemistry/biology related laboratory activities including but not limited to equipment fault finding, preparation of reagents, maintaining stock levels, updating and producing relevant paperwork and providing advice for students and support for academic staff.
