Laboratory Technician - Archaeology - B151701T2
 

Salary: £24,983 - £26,495 per annum (with progression to £28,936)

Closing Date: 25 September 2018

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology are seeking to recruit a research technician (grade E). The archaeology laboratories consist of the Wolfson Laboratory, Microscope Lab and the new Earthslides Lab. Working under the direction of the Archaeology Laboratory Director (currently Dr Lisa-Marie Shillito), and other Principal Investigators, you will support a range of research projects as well as providing support for teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The duties will involve processing environmental samples, setting up of equipment and supervising students working in the labs. You will also have the opportunity to gain experience in the operation of polarising microscopes, and will be responsible for the day to day management and Health and Safety of the laboratories (including the generation and updating of lab risk assessments.)

You should hold a degree in a relevant discipline, and have prior experience of working in laboratories, either as part of an undergraduate degree with a significant laboratory component, or through working in a similar professional environment. You will be required to work independently on your own initiative, and have excellent record keeping skills. Whilst experience of working with archaeological materials, and specifically working with microfossils is desirable, full training will be given.

This post is part-time at 40% FTE (2 days per week), and is part of a full time Job Share.
