We have an exciting opportunity in the Faculty of Engineering and Science to appoint a teaching technician to support student learning and research projects in the areas of bioscience, nutrition, chemistry, and pharmaceutical sciences. You will assist with technical support to foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate students studying one of the disciplines, including demonstration of the use of equipment and methods regularly used. The remit for this role is to provide support to academic teaching, although you will not be teaching yourself. Instead, the position is designed to ensure everything is in place ready for students at the start of a session and to help with any issues that may arise during teaching.

The roles will include supporting all aspects of preparation and clearing of laboratory classes including setting up equipment, preparation of reagents, maintaining stock levels and providing advice and the relevant technical knowledge for students and academic staff during laboratory sessions. The role holder will also provide support for the Science Stores.

The post demands a proactive approach, requiring initiative, team working and excellent communication and interpersonal skills. The role holder will be highly organised with a positive and flexible approach to work in order to deal with a variety of requests and tasks.
