Research Associate in Polymer Synthesis

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoc position at Imperial College London. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. The deadline for applying is September 14, 2018.

The Department of Materials wishes to appoint a Research Associate to work on projects aimed at synthesizing and using innovative polymer-based materials for a wide array of applications in biomedical science. This post is based within the Biomaterials group at Imperial College London, working with Professor Molly Stevens and involve collaborations with a number of other internationally recognised biomaterials and (nano) materials research groups. The Stevens Group has received numerous awards for outstanding biomaterials related research ( and comprises a very international and multidisciplinary group of Research Fellows and PhD students.

The Research Associate will design, synthesis and characteris polymers for applications in regenerative medicine and biosensing. The Research Associate will perform wet synthetic protocols to biofunctionalise the polymers to direct cell response or enable new biomaterials. You will be expected to work in a multidisciplinary environment and be active in multiple projects within our labs and through collaborations. To view ongoing research in the group please visit You will be offered extensive opportunities for collaborative work, both within and external to Imperial College.

You will be a conscientious, innovative experimental scientist who has successfully completed a PhD (or equivalent) in chemistry, biochemistry, physics, materials science or engineering including bioengineering or similar. Experience in polymer synthesis and characterisation and biomaterial design for applications in regenerative medicine are essential.

Candidates/post holders will be expected to demonstrate the following
- A first degree (or equivalent) or a masters (or equivalent) in chemistry, materials science or engineering or similar.
- A PhD (or equivalent) in chemistry, polymer chemistry, or materials science or engineering including bioengineering or similar.
- Experience in a wide range of synthetic skills (e.g. experimental design, catalysts, wet chemistry, purification, etc).
- Experience in focusing on polymers, their chemistry and characterisation, including a number of first-authored papers in well-respected journals.
- Knowledge of materials characterisation techniques such as Raman spectroscopy.
- Demonstrated ability to develop and apply new concepts.

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