Post-doctoral Research Vacancies
- Research Associate in Inorganic Synthesis (gold nanoparticles) Ref: 1676902 (D/L: 28/10/2017)
Salary (inclusive of London allowance): £34,635 to £41,864 per annum
Closing Date: 28 October 2017
Duties and Responsibilities
Applications are invited by highly talented researchers for a Research Associate position under the supervision of Prof Ivan Parkin to work on “Advanced Flow Technology for Healthcare Materials Manufacturing”. This is a multidisciplinary project with the goal of developing robust scalable manufacturing routes for the use of nanoparticles (NPs) in healthcare and nanomedicine. This project is supported by the EPSRC and is in collaboration with the UCL departments of Chemical Engineering, Physics, IBME, Brunel University and an industrial consortium.
The successful applicant will join a highly motivated group working at the interface of Chemistry, Materials, Chemical Engineering and Nanomedicine. A high degree of collaborative work tackling important, interdisciplinary and industry focused science is being undertaken, which provides a highly stimulating environment in which to work. The postholder will undertake work in inorganic synthesis, especially the formation of gold nanoparticles. Additionally, the postholder will be expected to contribute to the design and implementation of the research strategy, and provide full records, analyses and internal reports of all research outcomes.
The appointment is funded by the EPSRC for a period of 12 months initially and start date is as soon as possible.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate commitment to high-quality research and proven research skills. In particular, knowledge and experience in the use of X-ray diffraction, Raman, TEM/SEM and optical measurements is essential. Candidates should have published work in international journals. Experience of microbiology is essential. The successful candidate will have a PhD in either Chemistry, Inorganic Materials or Chemical/Process engineering or ideally will have submitted their thesis prior to taking up the position.
Please note, appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6 (salary £30,316 to £31,967 p.a. including London Allowance of £3,031 p.a.) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
