We have an exciting opportunity for an individual to join the Microscopy and Flow Cytometry Scientific Research Facilities team (SRF) at the Department of Oncology. You will primarily provide specialist support and advice on experiment design and data analysis within the Flow Cytometry SRF. This may involve the use of commercial software or the development of software routines if none are available. The role will also provide support on the use, maintenance, development and quality control of the equipment within both SRFs.
Both SRFs involve a variety of applications and techniques including cell sorting, cell counting, fixed multi-colour fluorescent samples, live cell imaging, spheroid and in vivo tumour imaging.
You will be educated to degree level (or equivalent) in biology, biophysics or a related scientific discipline; a PhD would be advantageous. You will have experience in the use of advanced flow cytometry hardware for biological applications including a thorough understanding of the acquisition process and hardware optimisation involved. You will be able to interact with other scientific disciplines, interpret varied project requirements and support and develop projects.
You will also have demonstrable project management experience and have the ability to prioritise, problem solve and work flexibly on multiple projects in a multi-user environment.
You will have excellent organisational skills, be able to work to tight deadlines and communicate effectively both orally and in writing with special reference to scientific and safety information. Strong computing skills are also essential.
This is a full-time post available for 1 year in the first instance.
All applicants must complete an application form and submit a CV and supporting statement.
Join us and you will find a unique, democratic and international community, a great range of staff benefits and access to a vibrant array of cultural activities in the beautiful city of Oxford.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 27 September 2019.
