Salary £24,402-£30,013 per annum
In the general field of biological sciences, there is an increasing need to be able to manipulate cells and particles for a broad range of applications, ranging from filtration and sample concentration, through lab on chip technologies for healthcare screening to guiding cells to preferred locations within tissue engineered constructs.
The successful candidate will develop an independent research programme in this area, particularly in line with the strategic thrusts of the Bioengineering Science Research Group and Universities Life Science Interface Initiative.
Expertise is sought in the area of design, development and application of microfluidic devices, ultrasonic manipulation and related manipulation techniques, such as dielectrophoresis.
Experience is also sought with the practical operation of fluid systems, their fabrication and integration with actuating or sensor systems.
Preference will be given to candidates with a proven track record in research in the field of tissue engineering, DNA handling, cell handling and biosensing. A proven record of working closely with researchers from other disciplines is required.
The Fellowship will be based within the School of Engineering Sciences and you will have access to the newly built Tissue Testing Suite.
The RCUK Fellowship is directly related to the SES's strategic thrusts in Bioengineering and the University's Life Sciences Interface Initiative.
The fellowship will be available from April 2007 for a period of five years.
Subject to the successful completion of a probationary period and the successful candidates meeting the University's criteria for appointment to an academic post, the University will guarantee a permanent academic post after completion of the fellowship.
