Resources Job Board Flow Cytometry Manager

Flow Cytometry Manager

The Flow Cytometry Facility comprises three recently refurbished rooms within the Department of Pathology on Tennis Court Road in central Cambridge and includes three analysers and one sorter. One of the rooms is equipped with a class 2 microbiological safety cabinet which houses a 5-laser, 18-colour MoFlo Astrios sorter and has direct access to a biological services unit with class 2 pathogen containment.

We are in the process of purchasing and additional analyser capable of detecting 20 or more fluorophores. In addition to the Department of Pathology, users from the Departments of Biochemistry; Genetics; Physiology, Development and Neuroscience; Plant Sciences and the Gurdon Institute use this central core facility. The Facility is run on a cost-recovery basis and you will be responsible for managing bookings and budgets to help ensure that the Facility is run in a sustainable manner.

The postholder will have significant experience operating both flow sorters and analysers as they will be responsible for the efficient running of the Facility and all of its instruments. The postholder will train users to operate the flow analysers and in select cases, the flow sorters, though in most cases, the postholder or their assistant will operate the flow sorters on behalf of the end users. The postholder will also be responsible for the training and line management of an assistant flow cytometrist who will help the postholder with the efficient running of the facility and who will be responsible for the instruments in postholder's absence. Experience with flow data analysis, data management and electronic booking systems would also be an advantage.

The postholder will be the first point of contact for suppliers and engineers and they will help prepare grant applications and lead negotiations with suppliers for the purchase of new instruments.

The postholder will report to the Head of Division of Immunology at the Department of Pathology, Professor Klaus Okkenhaug. They will also be a member of the Flow Cytometry Management Committee which will include representatives from each of the Departments.
