Advanced biomaterials are essential components in targeting drugs to treat infectious diseases and cancers, in realising the potential of regenerative medicine and in creating the medical devices of the future. This substantial project investment recognises the major healthcare challenges faced by society and the role that new biomaterials must play in tackling them, such as tacking antimicrobial resistance.


We are searching for a highly motivated research scientist. This will be an exciting and well-resourced project which aims to redefine biomaterials discovery in a radical and flexible programme of work. It is an excellent career development opportunity, including resource for researchers to develop ideas supported by high quality mentoring and exchange visits with leading international collaborators including MIT, University of Maastricht and University of Southern Denmark.


This post requires a postdoctoral scientist with skills in polymers synthesis and processing. We will be synthesising polymer particulate species using fluidics to create combinatorial libraries of materials containing a range of chemistry types, polymer molecular architectures and particulate formats. This researcher will be based with Prof Derek Irvine in Engineering to develop particle libraries for drug trafficking and cellular delivery.


This is fixed term, full-time contract for a period of 24 months starting October 2017.


Informal enquiries may be addressed to Elizabeth Hufton tel: 0115 8466246 Or email or Derek Irvine tel: 0115 95 14115 or email: Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
