In anticipation of its expansion and establishing a new site in a brand new custom built facility, the Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre Cell Phenotyping Hub is recruiting two new flow cytometrist posts to support the busy, expanding research technology platform based at Addenbrooke's Hospital. The Hub platform currently provides cytomics services to the Clinical School and across the biomedical campus.
The post-holders will play a crucial role in supporting the BRC Hub Director to expand the Campus-wide research services to scientists of the Clinical School, associated Departments and to the groups moving into the new purpose-built research facility including the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute (https://www.stemcells.cam.ac.uk/) and the Cambridge Institute of Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Diseases (https://www.immunology.cam.ac.uk/). The main responsibilities of the role are: perform cell sorting experiments; oversee the cellomics equipment and assist scientists in cellomics or phenotyping experiments, operate equipment; conduct technical diagnosis; troubleshoot and repair instruments; deliver preventive maintenance; collaborate with the facility users; help to interpret results and improve experiments and maximise the research capacity of equipment; train and advise users on adequate use of the machines; train internal Hub staff and assist the Hub Director in efficient and smooth general laboratory organization by operating core facilities in BRC Phenotyping Hub and covering for other Hub services.
Informal enquiries regarding both positions are strongly encouraged and should be made to the Director of Operations, Anna Petrunkina Harrison (email@example.com)
The lab operates late/night shifts for clinical scientific service according to rota (covering 8am -11 pm) and therefore operational requirements will include some non-standard working hours and infrequent weekend work.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 August 2020 in the first instance.
Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
