The University of Lincoln’s Joseph Banks Laboratories (JBL) houses the research and training facilities for the Schools of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Life & Environmental Science. These are complemented by teaching laboratory facilities in the Janet Lane-Claypon Building. The JBL Schools Technical Team provide laboratory teaching and research support across these buildings for the students and staff as well as for the commercial facilities offered by JBL Science.

We currently have a vacancy for an experienced laboratory technician in synthetic chemistry. Knowledge of analytical, forensic and/or pharmaceutical chemistry would also be an advantage. The role is primarily based in the Janet Lane-Claypon Building on the Brayford campus where you will work in a team of 4 technicians in the chemistry teaching labs. The job is very varied and involves liaising with academic staff to discuss requirements, preparing solutions and equipment, and demonstrating in class to deliver a range of chemistry focussed practical classes to undergraduate students. You will have a good understanding of the science behind the practical work, be comfortable and experienced working safely in a chemistry lab and maintaining specialist lab equipment. You will need to be flexible in the hours and locations worked and you will be part of a larger team of 18 technicians, supporting colleagues in other areas where required. Technical support for research and commercial activities is also required in the nearby Joseph Banks Laboratories that house our well-equipped research laboratories.

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The Schools provide a stimulating environment for academic research, and are based in high quality, newly developed facilities.
