Applications are invited for two Teaching Laboratory Technician posts. The postholders will be responsible for the effective maintenance and running to the Teaching Laboratories. You will be required to carry out a range of tasks and ensure that students fully understand the experiments and how to use equipment correctly and safely.
You will play a major role in demonstrating chemistry experiments to undergraduates, as well as outreach to children and young adults, ensuring all experiments have sufficient equipment and stock.
You will maintain good stock control of all chemicals, clean and maintain all equipment on a daily basis during term-time and set up experiments for the lab practical's.
You will have a good training in chemistry or a related subject (minimum A-level and ideally to degree level) or have equivalent experience.

Please can you indicate on your supporting statement whether you have a preference for the Physical Chemistry or Organic Chemistry post.
This post will be based in the Department of Chemistry, South Parks Road, Oxford
