Research Associate (Fixed-Term Role)

University of Bath - Chemical Engineering

The Postdoctoral Research Associate appointed to this project will carry out experimental research on the NIHR-funded project entitled ‘Manufacture and Clinical `Assessment of Cultured Red Blood Cells’.
 
Recent advances in biology have given the potential to culture red blood cells to fill the deficit between donated and required red blood cell for transfusion, espcecially for the rare blood groups.
 
One of the challenges to overcome in supplying cultured red blood cells is doing the expansion in a cost effective system. This sub-project will focus on the project goal to 'develop novel technology to allow the manufacture of enough red blood cells to treat patients'. As such, you will design, fabricate, operate and assess a bioreactor.
 
You will work closely with collaborators at the University of Bristol and the Bristol Blood and Transplant Unit.
 
This position is fixed-term for a period of 18 months and the successful candidate will hopefully be able to start in January 2018.
