Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader: Biomedical Engineering

University of Glasgow – College of Science and Engineering - James Watt School of Engineering

The James Watt School of Engineering (JWSE) at the University of Glasgow is an energetic and growing international centre of excellence for Engineering research and teaching. The School leads research in Aerospace Sciences; Autonomous Systems; Biomedical Engineering; Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering; Infrastructure and Environment; and Systems, Power and Energy. We have 150 academics and 168 post-doctoral researchers supported by 61 technicians and 27 professional services staff. Currently we have 450 research students working towards doctorates.

We are seeking to fill a position for an ambitious academic to join the James Watt School of Engineering in the broad areas of biomaterials chemistry, organoid technologies and organ-on-a-chip. The field includes bioengineering tools, devices and novel biomaterials to develop in vitro models of health and disease and drug testing and it also links to diagnostics and regenerative medicine. It includes 3D hydrogels, nanomaterials, sensors, surface functionalization micro/nanofabrication of relevant systems, and advanced microscopy (eg Brillouin microscopy and atomic force microscopy). Applications around advanced systems such as soft robotics are particularly welcomed, including automated systems that can stimulate cells/tissues locally controlled by AI. 

The post holder will join a vibrant environment with world leading groups in Cell Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Advanced Diagnostics. The James Watt School of Engineering hosts fundamental research that is developed with the ambition to lead to industrial and academic impact. We expect the successful academic to complement and synergise with existing activities and to develop a network of collaborations locally (across the School of Engineering and the University) as well as to liaise with industry and clinicians to translate their research to the highest impact.
