in-house ABI-377 sequencing service. The Institute houses research
groups who work in infectious diseases, genomics, population genetics
and evolution: all of these use DNA sequencing as a core tool. We have
had an ABI377 for three years, and would now like to upgrade our service
to better meet the expanding needs of our research.

The post involves running the 377 (pouring gels, loading samples,

The post will suit a motivated and organised person who likes
interacting with researchers on a day to day basis, and who takes pride
in a service well run. The Institute has a lively social life, and
Edinburgh is renowned for its quality of life and the social/artistic
scene, as well as the excellence of its Universities.
