The University of Lincoln’s Joseph Banks Laboratories (JBL) houses the research and training facilities for the Schools of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Life & Environmental Sciences. These are complemented by the teaching laboratory facilities in the Janet Lane-Claypon Building. The JBL Schools Technical Team provide laboratory teaching and research support across these buildings for the students and staff as well as for the commercial facilities offered by JBL Science.

We currently have a vacancy for a Technician Assistant in Chemistry / Pharmacy to support teaching and research in these laboratories. The role is primarily based in the Janet Lane-Claypon Building on the Brayford campus where you will work in a team of 4 technicians in the newly refurbished chemistry labs. The job is very varied and involves the preparation of labs for a range of subjects including synthetic, forensic, analytical and pharmaceutical chemistry, helping the academics to run practical classes by means of demonstrations, assisting students if required and clearing up afterwards. Technical support for research and commercial activities is also required in the nearby Joseph Banks Laboratories that house our well-equipped research laboratories.

A higher qualification (HNC or degree) in a scientific subject and/or recent experience of working in a chemistry laboratory environment would be an advantage. Full training in the use of the relevant instrumentation and how to be an effective teaching technician will be provide. You will need to be flexible in the hours and locations worked and you will be part of a larger team of 18 technicians, supporting colleagues in other areas where required.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The Schools provide a stimulating environment for academic research, and are based in high quality, newly developed facilities.
