We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
We are looking to recruit a laboratory technician to support ongoing research studies on human microbiomes and host-pathogen interactions conducted as part of the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre in the Oral Disease, Skin Disease and Immunogenomics. You will have opportunities to develop and apply cutting edge technologies including those arising from high-throughput sequencing, namely single cell RNA sequencing, immunological technologies and developing novel tools to investigate the human microbiome and address host pathogen interactions. The role will include deciphering the function of novel immune cell subsets and resistance markers in the immune system.
Further information on the ongoing work of these teams can be found at:
The successful applicant will hold: BTEC HNC/HND or equivalent in a relevant subject with technical expertise in microbiology and cellular immunology techniques, including flow cytometry, that will enable the post holder to support the projects.

You will be based at Newcastle University (NU), in the Bioscience Institute (NUBI) within the Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS). You will have a strong focus on interdisciplinarity and team science, establishing links between Bioscientists and clinicians and have a desire to work with other researchers at NU. Researchers in NUBI and Dental Sciences have excellent opportunities to collaborate with members of our Translational and clinical Research Institute (NUTCRI) and Population Health Sciences Institute (NUPHSI) in FMS and with colleagues in the Department of Dermatology at the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This research community provides a unique, diverse and supportive environment where exciting research can expand and develop. The Faculty provides excellent scientific facilities, offering state of the art technologies on site (https://www.ncl.ac.uk/medical-sciences/business/facilities/).
