The postholder will have experience of the delivery of a technical service to active research laboratories, in addition the role may include the supervision of junior staff.

This role offers an exciting opportunity as both Schools are also embarking on ambitious growth strategies including the recent opening of a brand-new shared research building, the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (IBRB) which can house around 200 laboratory researchers in a state-of-the-art research environment.
