We are currently looking to recruit an ambitious, self-motivated postdoctoral researcher to join the research team of Prof Yvonne Perrie in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. This is an exciting opportunity for you to join an active, well-funded research team investigating the formulation, development and manufacture of nanomedicines. We are investigating the use of a range of nanomedicines (including lipid nanoparticles, liposomes and polymeric nanoparticles) for the delivery of drugs (small molecules and biologicals) and vaccines (including sub-unit and RNA-based vaccines).   

As a Research Associate, under the general guidance of a research leader, you will develop research objectives and proposals, play a lead role in relation to a specific project/s or part of a broader project, conduct individual and/or collaborative research, contribute to the development of new research methods, identify sources of funding, and contribute to the securing of funds for research, including drafting grant proposals and planning for future proposals. You will write up research work for publication, individually or in collaboration with colleagues, and disseminate the results via peer reviewed journal publications and presentation at conferences. You will join external networks to share information and ideas, inform the development of research objectives and to identify potential sources of funding. You will collaborate with colleagues to ensure that research advances inform departmental teaching effort and you will collaborate with colleagues on the development of knowledge exchange activities by, for example, participating in initiatives which establish research links with industry and influence public policy and the professions.   You will supervise student projects, provide advice to students and contribute to teaching as required by, for example, running tutorials and supervising practical work. You will contribute in a developing capacity to Department/School, Faculty and/or University administrative and management functions and committees and engage in continuous professional development.

To be considered for the role, you will be educated to a minimum of PhD level in an appropriate discipline, or equivalent relevant professional experience in addition to a relevant degree. You will have sufficient breadth or depth of knowledge in the pharmaceutical sciences and drug delivery and a developing ability to conduct individual research work, to disseminate results and to prepare research proposals. You will have an ability to plan and organise your own workload effectively and an ability to work within a team environment. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to listen, engage and persuade, and to present complex information in an accessible way to a range of audiences. 

Formal interviews for this post will be held late November/early December 2021

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Yvonne Perrie, Head of Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (
