In my role as a Senior Technician for the Biology division, I provide support for both teaching and research across the School of Biological Sciences. During the teaching terms I am responsible for running undergraduate teaching modules in Zoology and Biomedical Sciences, duties of which include; liaising with Academic staff to determine the practical requirements for the classes, preparation of samples, equipment and solutions, and demonstrating key techniques and equipment to students.
Alongside this, I also provide indirect research support throughout the year, which includes; maintaining stocks of liquid nitrogen, changing gas cylinders and portable appliance testing.
