We are seeking a skilled Research Technician to join the team in the School of Translational Health Sciences under the supervision of Professor David Murphy.

You will work on a Leverhulme Trust funded project entitled How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?

Desertification and climate change will impact on the resource security of many of the world’s most vulnerable communities.

The Arabian camel thrives in harsh desert conditions and can survive extended periods of dehydration. We will determine the genomic and physiological basis of this adaptation.
