This is an exciting opportunity to join our Grow Lab team. We work at the cutting edge of new thinking and developments to prepare our students for successful careers in the creative industries of the future. The Grow Lab technical resource provides scientific biological support to a range of post-graduate Masters and PhD students across Biodesign, Art & Science and Material Futures courses.
You will create and deliver workshops, meet students in a one-to-one basis to provide consultation on their projects, and provide technical support for day-to-day operation of resources linked to the delivery of Grow Lab practices. You will play an integral part of the technical team, contributing your experience working with micro-organisms and plants, synthetic biology, DNA, microbiology, microscopy, new materials and imaging. Your role will encompass professional applied experience. You will also have the opportunity to develop new skills and experience across a wide range of technical workshops.
Your role will encompass communicating with stakeholders, acting as a lead point of contact for technical support, and ensuring access to up-to-date and accurate information for students, academics, fellow technicians, and other university staff.
We are looking for an experienced, adaptable, self-motivated person. Ideally a creative individual, with a passion for biology and living systems, and an interest in contemporary questions of science in culture, who will relish the challenge of supporting a diverse range of talented and renowned academics.
We need someone who is a good communicator, able to explain complex information clearly to a diverse audience, with an in-depth knowledge of microbiology and general biology, who is enthusiastic about imparting knowledge to students and able to meet the evolving challenge of coupling biology and design experimentation in a creative science lab context. An interest in speculative design, social context of scientific work and new media are a plus.
You’ll have excellent applied experience suited to support safe practice in a Cat.1 biology lab, including imaging and hardware operations. It would be helpful to be proficient in some relevant creative, analysis, and presentation software (e.g. Adobe software, ImageJ, and/or equivalents).
