"I work as a Lab Technician in a neurology lab, specialising in the examination of Parkinson’s disease in post-mortem brain tissue. In a nutshell, my role involves assisting a research team, and working with professors and science students to carry out experiments – and to make sure the lab reagents are stocked and maintained. It’s really exciting to know that the research I’m supporting could help to develop life-changing medicine, and I genuinely enjoy my job. It’s also a great place to start if you’re looking to pursue a career in science – although many Lab Technician roles can be contract-based, so it’s worth considering studying for a PhD if you’re looking for something more permanent."
