University College London (UCL) is one of the top global academic institutions (see: www.ucl.ac.uk). We are currently expanding to East London and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The new UCL East campus will support education and research across disciplines to find solutions to the biggest challenges of our time. We are located in Newham, East London - one of the most socially diverse parts of the UK – and we would like our staff recruitment to reflect this.
This post sits within the Manufacturing Futures Lab (MFL) in the Marshgate Building at UCL East, with 1500m2 of new collaborative research laboratories. The MFL is a cross-faculty hub, bringing together researchers from four UCL departments with the Department of Biochemical Engineering as the lead partner for this post. The post will initially be based at UCL’s Bloomsbury campus in Central London and will move to UCL East in mid 2023. For more information see: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ucl-east/study-and-research/manufacturing-futures-lab. UCL is committed to an inclusive and supportive culture for all.
