An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Laboratory Support Technician within the recently opened School of Veterinary Medicine to work supporting our veterinary teaching and research programmes. The role focusses on, but is not exclusively, dealing with efficient and safe waste management of materials generated through the laboratory research and teaching activities.

The School of Veterinary Medicine aims to create a wealth of new knowledge of the animal world, taking a multi-disciplinary approach to veterinary education and research and creating the veterinary leaders of the future. With over £40m of investment, international and multi-partner collaborations, coupled with a multi-disciplinary approach and state-of-the-art equipment, teaching and research facilities, it could open up a world of possibilities for you too. So join us at the forefront of developments in veterinary sciences.

You will be part of a team of technical staff responsible for delivering a high standard of technical support for teaching and research activities in our new purpose built veterinary teaching and research laboratories.

With a background in science or a similar relevant role and ideally previous experience with autoclaves, you will also have understanding of health and safety within the laboratory setting.

In addition to salary you will receive a generous annual leave entitlement, childcare assistance and excellent development opportunities.

If you are enthusiastic, keen to join a School of Veterinary Medicine that is motivated to do things differently and open up a world of new possibilities, we would be delighted to hear from you. For an informal discussion about the role, please contact:
