Research Laboratory Technician (Fixed Term)
We are seeking to recruit Research Laboratory to Technician to support the setting up of the Milner Therapeutics Institute. The Milner Therapeutics Institute (MTI) is a brand-new purpose-built research Institute (opened in September 2019) within the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Clinical Medicine at the University of Cambridge. The overarching vision of the MTI is to convert pioneering science into therapies. The Institute delivers this through its aims to connect industry and academia, enable and drive collaborative research and accelerate therapeutic companies. The Institute houses the Centre for Pathway Analysis, AZ/CRUK joint Functional Genomics Centre and Cambridge Centre for Proteomics. The Centre for Pathway Analysis houses collaborative academic/industry research projects and generates its own drug discovery pipeline to translate academic research from the University of Cambridge.
This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated individual to support the set up and maintenance of the Institute to ensure research is delivered effectively. This will include set up and support for the consumable stores, tissue culture laboratories, general laboratories and equipment within the MTI. The postholder will also represent the Milner as ‘Green Impact Champion’ working to encourage environmental sustainability throughout the Institute.
Applicants must be self-motivated and have proven experience in an academic or commercial laboratory. Successful candidates will have good communication and interpersonal skills, a methodological approach to problem-solving and a basic understanding of current trends in the bioscience sector.
