We are seeking a motivated Lecturer / Senior Lecturer to join our Medicines Development research group at the Institute of Pharmaceutical Science (IPS).
We encourage applicants who have an expanding research profile and a proclivity for curiosity driven, perceptive research that will enhance the world-class research portfolio of the School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Sciences and King’s Health Partners clinical academic groups of Pharmaceutical Science.
IPS academics have expertise in the areas of pharmaceutical formulation (pharmacy) and analysis, delivery across biological barriers, theranostic nanomedicines, enabling technologies, medicinal/bioinorganic/bioanalytical chemistry, biophysics, microbiology, systems biology, neurodegenerative diseases, pharmacology, vascular biology and inflammation. These are linked by cross-cutting themes in cancer diagnostics and therapeutics, antimicrobials and respiratory medicines.
In Medicines Development research group, we build on understanding of drugs to develop medicines of high safety and efficacy. We invite applicants who can capitalise on the rapidly developing Nucleic Acid Therapeutics (NAT) capabilities and opportunities. The applicant is expected to bring expertise in enabling technologies for NAT delivery to the Medicines Development and Drug Discovery research groups and contribute to the healthcare missions identified in the Life Sciences Vision at King’s College London (KCL).
We welcome applications from scientists with backgrounds in NAT chemistry, biology, drug delivery, pharmaceutical technology, pre-clinical or clinical translations of NATs. We welcome imaginative and interdisciplinary applicants who can move our ambitions forward by pursuing new opportunities for laboratory research programmes. There is a particular opportunity to enhance collaborations with the Centre for the GMP manufacture of Investigational Medicinal Products, Centre for Gene Therapy & Regenerative Medicine, King’s Centre for Lung Health and Regenerative Biomaterials research at KCL.
The applicant should have a strong, fundable research area that fits with the School of Cancer and Pharmaceutical Sciences and has obvious potential for collaboration with researchers across the School, the Faculty, King’s, the UK and internationally.
An inclusive workplace delivers greater impact and we are looking for an individual who will help evolve our welcoming, vibrant, and inspiring environment. A key part of our ethos is equality, with a dynamic and fulfilling culture for all and an emphasis on tackling under-representation of female and minority ethnic researchers in science.
The role requires a skilled educator to teach undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of Pharmaceutical Science and embed within the existing teaching structure of Pharmacy UGT/PGT Programmes at KCL.
