About the DRI and the role

Dementia is the greatest health challenge of our century. The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) is the biggest UK initiative supporting research to fill this gap. Research from UK DRI at UCL covers the journey from the patient to the laboratory and back to the patient with improved diagnosis, biomarkers and candidate therapies put to the test. The UK DRI at UCL is a newly established research centre, with 15 group leaders currently instigating their programmes of research and building their teams. The purpose of this position is to manage the UK DRI’s Queen Square Institute of Neurology laboratory space (3rd floor) under the direction of the UK DRI Laboratory Manager.

This includes day to day oversight of the establishment of a multi-PI laboratory environment, working with the Queen Square Institute of Neurology building staff to ensure appropriate laboratory services are in place, providing laboratory-relevant administrative support to the UK DRI PIs, and to help build a culture of collaboration, shared resources and research excellence. Knowledge of a wide range of molecular and cell biology and biochemical techniques is required, including cell culture, genomics and microscopy, in order for the post-holder to be able to communicate effectively with UK DRI researchers and aid them with their laboratory work.

Person Criteria

Applicants should be educated to at least BSc or Masters in a relevant subject or equivalent or have substantial relevant experience. A significant and demonstrable understanding of molecular and cell biology and biochemical knowledge is essential, as is the ability to prioritise effectively and to communicate and deal effectively and professionally with a wide range of people at all levels in and outside of the University. Demonstrable organisational skills, a flexible attitude and a knowledge of scientific terminology are also requirements. Knowledge and experience in Neuroscience and significant working knowledge of Health and Safety Regulations are desirable.
