Research Laboratory Technician (x2)

University of Cambridge

The MRC Epidemiology Unit is seeking to appoint two Sample Management Technicians.

These positions are based in the Unit's Sample Management team within the Research Operations section. The primary role of these posts is to work on a year-long project to archive some of the Unit's legacy studies. This will involve the auditing, re-organising, re-labelling and data import (to spreadsheets and LIMS) of frozen study samples.

Alongside a competitive salary, University staff are eligible for a comprehensive package of benefits and services include discounts on shopping, health care, financial services and public transport. We also offer defined benefits pension schemes and tax-efficient bicycle, car lease and charity-giving schemes.

The MRC Epidemiology Unit is a department within the University of Cambridge's School of Clinical Medicine and is situated within the Institute of Metabolic Science on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. Its mission is to study the genetic, developmental and environmental factors that cause obesity, diabetes and related metabolic disorders and develop strategies for their prevention. The Unit benefits from a number of large-scale, cross programme epidemiological studies with detailed datasets allowing a wide range of research from genetics to public health. Highly experienced information teams and other specialist teams support the scientists in the delivery of their research aims.

The successful candidate will ideally be educated to HNC or equivalent level in a relevant subject. Applicants should have experience of handling biological samples, working with ultra-low temperature freezers, and using spreadsheets to manage datasets. A full UK driving license would be an advantage as there may be a requirement to help with transportation of samples using the Unit’s pool van.

These are fixed-term positions for 1 year.
