The Department of Archaeology at the University of York is ranked 18th in the world in the QS rankings. We are based in both the King’s Manor in the heart of the historic city of York and at Heslington West campus. Our vibrant community consists of over 90 staff and over 600 students, with growing international representation. We carry out international, impact-oriented and interdisciplinary teaching and research of the highest quality through our strong network of partnerships. The student experience is of paramount importance to the Department and we maintain a high level of student satisfaction. Equality, diversity and inclusion are at our core and we promote a collegial environment in which staff and students feel supported and valued.
The Research Technician manages the day-to-day organisation and operation of the DNA and proteomic laboratories housed within the BioArCh research facility. The technician will undertake experiments with limited oversight from lecturers, thus independence is highly valued for the role. Likewise, the technician will lead some data analyses, such as interpretation of mass spectra or preprocessing ancient DNA datasets. The technician will provide guidance, training and technical support to project students, postgraduates, academics and research staff within and external to the University. As the manager of the laboratories, the technician will be responsible for ordering consumables, keeping the laboratories in working order, ensuring safe practices, liaising with suppliers and university groups, shipping and receiving samples, and related tasks.
