Research Technician in Neuroscience

Applications for this vacancy closed on 1 July 2016 at 12:00PM
An exciting opportunity exists to join the laboratory of Dr Tommas Ellender at
the Department of Pharmacology investigating the developmental mechanisms
underlying the formation of the basal ganglia. The goal of the research is to
understand how the brain wires itself during development and how these
processes go awry in human disease. We are looking for a full-time Research
Technician, funded by the MRC for a fixed-term of 12 months in the first
instance with the option to extend up to 2 years. We are looking for an
enthusiastic scientist, with experience of working on their own initiative, to
help with the day-to-day running of the lab and provide research support for
several on-going projects. However, the opportunity is there and would be
welcomed if he/she would like to run an independent project as well.



The postholder will assist with on-going projects utilising surgical,
electrophysiological and anatomical techniques to study the neural mechanisms
underlying circuit development.



The successful candidate should hold a first degree in biology or related
subject together with experience of working in a laboratory environment; have
strong communication, organisation and record keeping skills; must be a team
player able to interact effectively with the group and work independently with
little supervision; and be willing to carry out routine biological practices
and to learn new methods and skills.



The post is fixed-term for 12 months in the first instance, funding by the
Medical Research Council.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 1 July 2016.
