Eli Lilly Lectureship Above the Bar in Biochemical/ Biopharmaceutical Engineering (x2) University College Cork, School of Engineering Ireland

Eli Lilly Lectureship Above the Bar in Biochemical/ Biopharmaceutical Engineering (x2)

Permanent Whole-Time Post x 2


UCC wishes to appoint two Lecturer positions above the bar in Biochemical/ Biopharmaceutical Engineering. These are posts funded through the generous support of Eli Lilly and Company. The Eli Lilly Lectureships in Biochemical/Biopharmaceutical Engineering, located within with the Process & Chemical Engineering Unit of the School of Engineering, provide an exciting opportunity for candidates with relevant research experience to actively contribute to the development of an Eli Lilly Research Group in Biopharmaceutical Engineering and across the College of Science, Engineering and Food Science.


Working under the general direction of the Head of the School of Engineering, the successful candidates will be expected to deliver research-led teaching and further develop existing as well as new teaching capacity in biopharmaceutical/biochemical engineering, as well as across chemical engineering more generally. The successful candidates will have appropriate lecturing experience, and will be excellent lecturers, willing to innovative and learn, and engage in teaching and learning professional development. Process & Chemical Engineering currently offers biopharmaceutical/biochemical engineering modules within its undergraduate and masters programmes, and also contributes to other programmes across the College of Science, Engineering and Food Science, including courses in Biotechnology.

The appointee will have a BE in Bio/Chemical Engineering or equivalent, a PhD in Biochemical/Biopharmaceutical/Bioprocess Engineering or a cognate area, and a well-established record of research outputs in biochemical or biopharmaceutical engineering. They will have developed a strong research base in Biopharmaceutical, Bioprocess or Biochemical Engineering, with the clear potential to develop an international reputation in this field. They will also contribute to and display the potential to lead on the development of a high impact biopharmaceutical engineering research programme, as part of an integrated and collaborative approach to biopharmaceutical research across the university, through linking with cognate related disciplines.

The successful candidates will build on existing local industry connections and will help progress the further development of collaborative links (research and other) with Eli Lilly and across the industry more broadly. Eli Lilly’s site, located in nearby Kinsale, is the main centre for the manufacture and supply of active ingredients for its new biopharmaceutical medicines, following recent significant investment in its biopharmaceutical manufacturing and commercialisation facilities.

Please note that Garda vetting and/or an international police clearance check may form part of the selection process.
