The Hannon laboratory at the CRUK Cambridge Institute (part of the University of Cambridge) is seeking to hire a Research Laboratory Technician to support the laboratory.

Our laboratory has a long-standing interest in RNA biology and cancer research, and a history of developing new tools to address cutting-edge questions in these fields.
