UCL – Lecturer in bionanotechnology & biochemical engineering

This position is an exciting new academic appointment that will be jointly held between UCL’s London Centre for Nanotechnology and the Department for Biochemical Engineering. The post holder will work in the field of nanosensors for point of care disease diagnosis and or bioprocess analysis applications. This is an exciting opportunity to work with a multidisciplinary team and the new member of staff will be directly affiliated to the £11M i-sense EPSRC Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (IRC) in Early Warning Sensing Systems for Infectious Diseases, one of three national EPSRC centres of excellence in sensing systems.

The successful candidate will hold a good first degree and PhD in a relevant engineering or physical science discipline. They will have proven communication skills, demonstrable collaboration activity and a growing track record in high quality publications and presentations in high profile conferences or meetings. A proven record of conducting high quality research and working with end users is essential, as is the ability to work collaboratively and to share in managing complex programmes. Track record and proven skills in teaching will be valued but are considered to be a skill which may be acquired in the early years of post. What is essential is commitment to high quality academic research and teaching, and continuous professional development.

Closing date 7th April; more details here.
