Job Details (corehr.com)

We are seeking a full-time postdoctoral research assistant to join the Kwan Research Group and Physical Acoustic Lab (PAC Lab) at the Department of Engineering Science located in the Begbroke Science Park.  The post is funded by Oxford University Innovation (OUI) and is fixed-term from February 28th 2023 to February 28th 2024.

OUI has funded us to develop a novel cavitation-enhanced drug delivery strategy to prevent post angioplasty restenosis. You will be responsible for the synthesis of the drug-delivery vehicles, the design, development, and acoustic characterization of a novel intravascular ultrasound catheter device, and the ex vivo or in vivo assessment of the drug-delivery strategy.  

You should hold a relevant PhD/Dphil, (or near completion*) together with relevant experience in biomedical acoustics, acoustic device development, cavitation analysis, polymer microparticle synthesis and characterisation, and drug delivery analytical techniques (e.g., microscopy, histology, HPLC, etc.). On a personal level, you should be able to work well in a highly multi-disciplinary environment and collaborate with colleagues in the USA and Singapore.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof James Kwan (email: james.kwan@eng.ox.ac.uk).

Only online applications received before midday on 17th October 2022 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.

The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
