Research Associate in Polymersome Chemistry

Grade: 7

Hours: Full-time

Salary (inclusive of London allowance): £33,686 – £40,716 per annum

Closing Date: 1st August 2016

Duties and Responsibilities

The Research Associate will work in the Department of Chemistry at UCL’s Bloomsbury Campus, on a research project supervised by Prof Giuseppe Battaglia. The appointee will work on the synthesis and characterisation of biodegradable block copolymers to form polymersomes for anticancer applications. The project is part of a multidisciplinary effort aimed toward the design of personalised nanomedicines for anticancer applications. This will involve collaboration with clinical oncologists, physical biologists, and physicists. The postholder will be required to carry out research into new methodologies for the synthesis of biodegradable block copolymers using both solid-phase synthesis and/or ring-opening polymerisation protocols.

The post is funded by the EPSRC for a period of 3 years initially.

Key Requirements

A PhD in Synthetic Chemistry or Polymer Chemistry or a closely related subject as well as considerable postdoctoral experience relevant to the project is essential. We require an individual with either substantial experience in organic chemistry and a strong interest in polymer chemistry, or someone with a strong background in ring-opening polymerisation. Advanced knowledge in organic synthesis is essential. Knowledge and proven experience of soft nanoparticles, and polymersomes in particular, is desirable but not essential. The postholder must demonstrate their contribution to the scientific community, in the form of an appropriate number of publications in prestigious journals, patents, and conferences.
