We are looking for a Research Technician to support research seeking to increase understanding of the function of a key component of the electrical conduction system of the heart, called the atrioventricular node (AVN). You will work as part of a research team undertaking pre-clinical research into the role in the AVN of a potassium ion channel called “TASK-1”

You will be primarily involved in the management of mouse colonies that will enable comparison of AVN function in the presence and absence of TASK-1 channels. You will assist the project investigators with data acquisition, analysis and reporting.

The successful candidate will hold an appropriate qualification in a relevant subject and have excellent organizational skills. Previous experience of working in a technical role involving the use of genetically altered mouse models for academic research is desirable. A good understanding of laboratory health and safety for life-sciences research is also required

For informal enquiries please contact Professor Jules Hancox on 0117 933 12292, jules.hancox@bristol.ac.uk or Dr Andrew James on 0117 331 2297, a.james@bristol.ac.uk.

We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
