Applications are invited for a part-time (3 days per week) technical post providing research support to the Palaeoceanography and Sclerochronology/Scleroclimatology Research Groups in the School of Ocean Sciences within the context of the NERC CLAM research project.
The successful candidate will act as a point of contact for all technical related matters associated with the research groups; manage the laboratories (ensuring adequate stock levels, managing sample throughflow, and ensuring the laboratories are maintained in a tidy and clean state); liaise with relevant staff to ensure compliance with Health and Safety procedures; and assist with fieldwork.
The successful candidate will have A levels or equivalent in appropriate subjects such as science or maths, environmental sciences or geography and have relevant experience of working in a laboratory environment. A current valid driving licence is essential for the post, as travel to field sites will be required, and the flexibility to work outside regular hours is essential. Demonstrated experience of cognate research projects, and particularly of working in the palaeoceanographic and/or sclerochronological fields, is desirable. Previous experience of geological fieldwork or research cruise activity would be an advantage.
The successful candidate will be expected to commence 1st June 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter, and the post is available for a period of 21 months.
The ability to communicate through the medium of Welsh is desirable for this post.
