cryopreservation, and providing technical/research support for  the
Biomedical Parasitology Division. You will also carry out research on the
molecular biology of schistosomes and snails. There are likely to be travel
opportunities both within the UK and abroad.

The successful candidate will have a BSc in Life Sciences and a PhD, in an

research in life sciences is essential, knowledge of molecular biological
techniques or experience in parasitology would be an advantage. There must

income.

Self motivation and innovation are desirable characteristics as well as the
ability to work in a team. The candidate must have proven people management
