The Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London is leading the bioengineering agenda both nationally and internationally, advancing the frontiers of our knowledge in the discipline's three main areas: 1. Biomedical Engineering: Developing devices, techniques and interventions for human health. 2. Biological Engineering: Solving problems related to the life sciences and their applications for health. 3. Biomimetics: Using the structures and functions of living organisms as models for the design and engineering of materials and machines. This research associate position will be undertaken as part of an EPSRC IRC in Targeted Delivery for Hard-to-Treat Cancers. In this role, you will plan, lead and carry out a high quality research programme in the intersecting fields of drug delivery and bionic devices. You will collaborate with academic partners (at Cambridge University and Cancer Research UK), undertake project management and/or supervise multi-disciplinary teams, including assistant supervision of PhD students. In addition, you will be expected to submit publications to peer-reviewed journals, attract external research funding, and contribute to the teaching activities of the Institute.

You must have a PhD (or equivalent) in either Biomedical Engineering or Materials Science and Engineering (with a biomaterials or drug delivery) or a closely related discipline, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience for appointment at Research Associate level. You will have previous experience in a broad range of techniques including electrochemistry; polymer synthesis; mechanical, chemical and physical characterisation of biomaterials. You will have experience in performing drug delivery studies including techniques for pharmaceutical molecule analysis such as UV-Vis, Nanodrop and Raman spectroscopy, or similar. Knowledge of organic electronics, bionic devices and/or electrically controlled delivery of molecules is essential. Experience in undertaking in vitro studies including histological and microscopy techniques will be of benefit. You must have a track record of supervision in student research projects (undergraduate, Masters or PhD).

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 33,380 to 35,061 per annum.
