Applications for this vacancy closed on 4 June 2015 at 12:00PM
THIS VACANCY IS FOR INTERNAL APPLICANTS ONLY

This Research Technician will provide specialist technical support and conduct
original collaborative research as part of two closely-related scientific
programmes that are designed to elucidate the function and dysfunction of
basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuits. Candidates should have a good track
record in laboratory technician work and/or in laboratory-based research in
the field of neuroscience. The post holder will be required to play a key role
in the daily organisation and running of the common laboratory space used by
the two host Groups, as well as to contribute to the two research Programmes

approaches.

The postholder will be part of both the Magill Group and the Sharott Group,
and will be based at the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit (BNDU), Department of
Pharmacology. The two Groups work closely together, sharing laboratory and
office space. Each Group uses a multidisciplinary approach to elucidate the
function and dysfunction of basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuits, employing
innovative electrophysiological, anatomical, behavioural and genetics-based
techniques.

Essential criteria for the post include: an HNC or equivalent qualification in
a relevant area; experience in laboratory technician work and/or laboratory-
based research experience related to the scientific investigation of the
nervous system; general lab skills: IT skills; experience of database
management and laboratory compliance with best practice; experience of
