Deputy Laboratory Manager, Maternity Cover - Ref: 3778

(21 July 2014)

Applications are invited for the post of a full time Deputy Laboratory Manager to support laboratory activities, with a particular emphasis on support arising from the introduction of an MSc in Geography. This post is to provide maternity cover for up to 9 months or until 1st June 2015.

The Department is situated on the Science Laboratories Site, South Road, Durham, and is one of Europe’s leading Geography Departments, with around 700 students and 110 staff. We are one of only a very small number of Departments to be awarded both the status of ‘Excellent’ for the quality of teaching and the highest grading in the last two assessments of University research. We maintain a range of sophisticated laboratories to support teaching and research in a number of areas. Most of these laboratories have been recently refurbished or re-equipped with over £1.5 million of new equipment. This refurbishment included a dedicated Analytical and Geotechnical laboratory.
