Role Description


The Cell Surface Signalling laboratory led by Professor Gavin Wright is interested in identifying the molecular basis of cellular recognition processes in both health and disease. The aims of the laboratory’s research is to understand how cells interact both within our own bodies and with pathogens to inform the rational design of novel intervention strategies for the treatment and prevention of genetic and infectious diseases. We have a current focus on investigating host-pathogen interactions and developing vaccines for parasitic diseases. The Hull York Medical School and associated Department of Biology and York Biomedical Research Institute are recognised world leaders in biochemistry and parasitology research and you will join a vibrant environment of scientific researchers who are dedicated to tackling these important problems in global health.


We are looking for a laboratory manager to contribute to our exciting portfolio of science and ensure the smooth running of the laboratory. You will be responsible for ensuring the laboratory is a productive and safe environment to work and make contributions to your own and ongoing research projects. We are looking for someone who has biochemical training with experience in recombinant protein expression and purification, ideally using mammalian or insect cell expression systems.

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed

  • A PhD in a biochemistry-related subject or equivalent work experience
  • Experience in recombinant protein expression and purification, ideally in mammalian or insect cell lines.
  • In depth experience in molecular biology especially PCR and cloning
  • Highly organised and fastidious personality
