We have an exciting opportunity in the School of Chemical, Materials and Biological Engineering for someone with a passion for industrial biotechnology looking to use their skills in biochemical engineering to make an impact on bioreactor technology. You will join the MacInnes and Karunakaran research team in our large and diverse School of Chemical, Materials and Biological Engineering.

You will work in a well-connected team with world-leading reputations in the Spironix team (Spironix.co). We are well known internationally for our applied research and we are currently pursuing commercialisation opportunities for our reactor technology. You will use your know-how and skills in evaluating bioreactor performance to provide essential support to advance the existing prototype towards commercial deployment.

This role is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills in handling our innovative bioreactor technology, practical biochemical engineering techniques, handling of microorganisms and use of liquid chromatography and other bioanalytical techniques for bioproduct characterisation.
