Research Technician in Plant Science

Are you an early career researcher looking for a challenge? Do you have a background in molecular biology or plant science? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

Regulating gene expression to produce the appropriate level of each protein, in response to an ever-changing environment, is a particular challenge for sessile organisms such as plants. Discovering the underpinning regulatory mechanisms will ultimately allow us to enhance and manipulate crop growth and productivity. Our research team studies mechanisms that regulate gene expression in plants, acting at different points from transcription, through RNA processing to translation. Working with and supporting a postdoctoral fellow, you will use molecular biology techniques to construct test plasmids, transform them into Arabidopsis, genotype the resulting transgenic plants and study them, at molecular and phenotypic levels.

The University of Leeds and the Faculty of Biological Sciences are committed to providing equal opportunities for all and offer a range of family friendly policies. The University is a charter member of Athena SWAN (the national body that promotes gender equality in higher education), and the Faculty of Biological Sciences was reawarded a Bronze award in 2017. We are proud to be an inclusive Faculty that values all staff, and are happy to consider job share applications and requests for flexible working arrangements from our employees. Our Athena SWAN provides more information.
