OK guess who's catching up with psci-com emails…

Laboratory Supervisor

Life is North East England's science centre and is one of the most popular visitor attractions in the region. Opened in May 2000, the Centre has grown from an exhibition based on DNA and genetics into one of the country's leading science centres offering a programme of exhibitions, events, experiments, educational experiences, theatre shows and the biggest planetarium in the North giving visitors the chance to interact with a broad range of science topics.

Life's schools' programme aims to provide hands-on, minds-on, hearts-on science education that cannot be replicated in the classroom. A key part of the education programme is Lifelab which offers curriculum enrichment and enhancement by providing access to equipment and expertise that is not normally available in schools.

??16 – ??17K per annum (depending on experience)

Working to the Head of Education you will supervise and monitor the day-to-day running, cleanliness and good order of Lifelab, providing technical support for all workshops. This will include maintaining stocks and ordering materials as required and the appropriate disposal of wastes and any hazardous material.

You will be confident, approachable and reliable with excellent organisational skills, have a strong science background and be experienced in providing laboratory technical support in an educational environment. Knowledge of microbiological procedures, ability to handle DNA and all normal lab chemicals are essential.

Applicants must be able to work flexible hours as the Science Centre is a seven-day a week business and the role could require weekend and occasional evening work.

The successful applicant will be subject to a CRB disclosure check. Details of our CRB policy are available on request.
