Male biochemical engineer in lab

We have 3 post currently available:


Research Associate in Bioprocess Multivariate Statistics and Chemometrics

Ref:1633212

  • Grade:7
  • Hours: Full Time
  • Salary (inclusive of London allowance): £34,056 - £41,163 per annum

Duties and Responsibilities

The EPSRC Future Targeted Healthcare Manufacturing Hub is an international programme hosted by the Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering (ACBE) at UCL with funding from the EPSRC and a user consortium. The Hub will have collaborative Spokes at Imperial College London and the Universities of Loughborough, Manchester, Nottingham and Warwick. The Hub network of international companies and universities brings together process engineers, life scientists, pharmacists, mechanical engineers, public policy scientists and health economists. It will appoint a team of 14 postdoctoral researchers across the Hub and Spokes in creating innovative manufacturing and formulation routes, analytical and process control methods, and associated computational decision-support frameworks, to revolutionise the delivery of cost-effective stratified protein-based and personalised cell-based therapies to patients. 

The research associate in cell-free synthesis and downstream processing for targeted healthcare manufacturing, at UCL, will study the potential of this route for biopharmaceutical production. The goal is to design a process capable of product synthesis in a day using these methods to understand its potential role in the development of targeted healthcare. It will require skills in bioprocess design and operation in addition to experience of analytical techniques for biopharmaceutical critical quality attributes. 

While the Hub is funded for seven years in total, this position will be offered for two years in the first instance, and extended where necessary on a yearly basis. The post is available from 1 March 2017.

Key Requirements

The candidate will possess knowledge of mathematical optimisation and modelling, in-depth knowledge of the methods of multivariate statistical analysis and visualisation research techniques as well as writing, debugging and documentation of advanced engineering or scientific codes in MATLAB. A PhD degree in process engineering or biochemical engineering is required. Advanced research and project management skills are essential, as well as an ability to work in a multidisciplinary collaborative and teamwork environment with excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills.
