Applications are invited for a research fellow dedicated to the development of Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing as part of an effort to create digital manufacturing platforms for pharmaceutical processing systems. As part of the ESPRC funded Prosperity Partnership in Accelerated Discovery and Development of New Medicines which brings together the University of Nottingham with the University of Strathclyde and GSK, the project will require the use, development and modification of additive manufacturing systems, processing conditions and materials, as well as the design and manufacture of demonstrator systems. This role will focus on using additive manufacturing technologies such as stereolithography and projection micro stereolithography, to optimise the design and manufacture of flow and reactor systems suitable for the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. The role will link to other arms of the project developing suitable materials, machine learning and systems approaches that together will form a digital manufacturing platform suitable for agile manufacture of pharmaceuticals.
This post will be hosted within the Centre for Additive Manufacturing, Faculty of Engineering. The Centre has a state of the art laboratory and supports a portfolio of projects ranging from computational design to fabrication at multiple length scales. The successful candidate will sit within an interdisciplinary group that reaches beyond engineering and into multiple other disciplines including Pharmacy, Physics, Chemistry and Life Sciences.
Candidates must hold a good honours degree or equivalent in Engineering or Physical Science, and a PhD (or about to obtain) in Engineering or Physical Sciences, or be able to demonstrate equivalent experience. The successful candidate will be able to show:
The post is offered on a full time (36.25 hours per week), fixed term contract for 18 months. Job share arrangements may be considered.
Please direct informal enquiries to Prof. Ricky Wildman, email@example.com. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
