The Korzelius Laboratory, within the School of Biosciences is seeking a skilled Research Technician to join the technical team in supporting the work carried out in the laboratory.
The Korzelius lab at University of Kent was recently awarded an AMS/Wellcome Trust Springboard Award to tackle how entero-endocrine cells in the intestine differentiate, and how the differentiation of these cells is affected with age (Korzelius et al., 2019 Nature Communications, Tauc et al., 2021 Elife). In this project, we will use both the fruit fly intestine as well as human intestinal organoids to identify novel regulators of entero-endocrine differentiation. This project will allow you to use your skills working with both flies and 3D-organoid culture as well as building skills in genetics, molecular biology and image analysis.
Working as part of a technical support team providing a comprehensive, immediate and specialised support service for staff and students within the Division, the role of Research Technician helps to deliver timely and effective specialised research and teaching support to students, academic and research staff at all levels and visitors to the Division.

You will have a good understanding of Health and Safety protocols and procedures and will ensure a safe working environment is maintained at all times. This role will support the effective and efficient operation of general facilities and resources having day to day oversight of both availability and service levels.
