The School of Chemical Engineering are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to conduct own research, the successful candidate will take responsibility for the research stream of an ERC Advanced grant awarded to Professor Alicia El Haj and be required to oversee junior staff involved in the development of new nanotechnologies and protocols by which we can control cell behaviour in patients undergoing treatment for various conditions. Specifically, we aim to expand and develop a breakthrough platform technology using magnetic particle tagging which will allow us to direct cells for therapeutic purposes. Specifically, the candidate will carry out in vitro cell 2D and 3D studies to test downstream molecular and signalling responses to mechano-receptor activation. These protocols will be translated to relevant small and large animals to demonstrate functional repair in disease models.
Further, the candidate will be required to work closely with additional Research Fellows and assist in the supervision of PhD students within the lab of Professor Alicia El Haj.
Liaison with Pharmaceutical and other industrial collaborators will be part of the role and helping to drive commercialisation of any potential products from the programme.
