The purpose of this post is to co-ordinate, write and submit multi-author, multi-disciplinary collaborative papers for the CMAC Hub.
FTE: 1 (35 hours/week)
Term: Fixed Term (6 months)
The CMAC Future Manufacturing Hub (Hub) seeks a motivated scientific writer to accelerate our delivery and increase impact of the research outputs of our manufacturing medicines research programme which is coming to an end in Sept 2024. The Hub’s Vision is to revolutionise the development and supply of functional, high-value chemical and pharmaceutical products by delivering a rapid, digitally-enabled pipeline to integrated continuous manufacturing processes. Further details can be found in our 2021-2026 Strategy (http://www.cmac.ac.uk).
The purpose of this post is to coordinate, write and submit multi-author, multi-disciplinary collaborative papers for the CMAC Hub. The Hub is in the final year of the award and it is essential that the research outputs including these papers are submitted before the end of the award (end date 30/09/2024).
The work over the remainder of the programme will be to support the publication of the two papers that are close to submission, support the writing, submission and publication of a further large, multi-author, multi-university paper and support researchers to submit further aligned papers in the Hub portfolio including meeting the gold open access requirements and ensuring archiving by research collaborators of digital assets and data according to the Hub Data Management plan.
The candidate will have a PhD in a relevant subject (either Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, physical sciences or a related discipline) or relevant industrial experience with experience of writing papers in a clear and concise manner evidenced through publication track record, ideally working in multi-disciplinary, multi-site research team. The candidate will be proactive, assertive and able to communicate and influence at all levels of seniority in the team with good attention to detail, being well organised, and meeting deadlines.
Case studies of papers will be drafted for dissemination to wider audience to maximise impact. The research outputs will be translation ready by end of the project at technology readiness levels (TRL) 3-5. The work will support other outreach and impact related activities planned and outlined in the extension letter agreed by EPSRC (Hub funders).
CMAC is a multicultural, diverse, supportive, and inclusive research environment, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community. We offer agile working options in agreement with managers to meet the needs of the post and personal circumstances to support personal physical and mental well-being, as well as any caring responsibilities.
Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Helen Feilden, Hub Project Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Formal interviews for this post will be held on 17/01/2024.
