An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Technician to become part of an active group working on Rare Haematopoietic Stem Cell Disorders in Children. We aim to identify the genetic basis for these disorders, many of which remain to be explained and the consequences of these genetic changes for haematopoiesis. Ultimately we hope that this will help to explain why so many of these disorders predispose to leukaemia in children and also to help develop improved diagnostic methods and approaches to treatment.

This post will help to underpin sample collection and processing for the overall project to ensure high quality pipelines for sample annotation and processing to maximise throughput for genetic analysis. The work will be performed in the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) in the Paediatric Haematology Group of Professor Irene Roberts and will work very closely with the Group of Professor Adam Mead (Haematopoietic Stem Cell Biology). The successful applicant will have experience in cell biology preferably haematology and in particular in tissue culture, molecular biology techniques (such as RT-PCR, high throughput DNA sequencing, etc.) and flow cytometry. Experience of high throughput sequencing and bioinformatics related to this would be an advantage.

The research lab is part of the Molecular Haematology Unit (MHU) which is located in the WIMM and includes 14 research teams with over 100 scientists who share a common interest in understanding normal haematopoiesis and how this is disrupted in inherited and acquired blood diseases.

This is a 1 year, fixed-term contract, based on funding. The research lab would like the successful applicant to start as soon as possible. For informal enquiries please contact Professor Irene Roberts on 01865 222316.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 17 April 2015, interviews are currently scheduled to be held week commencing 27 April 2015. Applications are to be made online.
