Postdoc Position at Imperial College London

Imperial College London, UK has an opening postdoctoral fellowship position in biotechnology. This position is available for 18 months. Applications should be sent before February 17, 2019.

Applications are invited by highly talented researchers to join the Centre for Process Systems Engineering (CPSE) in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London (ICL) as a Research Associate to undertake work on the modelling and optimisation of vaccine manufacturing. This is part of the wider Future Vaccine Manufacturing Research Hub (Vax-Hub), led out of University College London (UCL). CPSE is a multi-institutional research centre of world-class departments between ICL and UCL, founded in 1989 and that remains the largest Centre of Excellence in process systems engineering.

The remit of this Research Associate post is to assist in the development of tools and novel manufacturing technologies that will modernise vaccine manufacturing processes that were established in the last century, in order for these life-saving medicines to be available to all, irrespective of economic circumstance. Your role on the project will be developing mathematical models and implementing model-based analysis and optimization to improve all aspects of vaccine manufacturing, with a view to decreasing time to market and identify critical cost bottlenecks. You will be working with both academic and industrial partners involved in vaccine manufacturing and will be expected to explore and suggest ways in which operation strategies can be improved.

The successful candidate will have a first degree in Engineering and a PhD in the field of Process Systems Engineering. Knowledge of process systems with an emphasis on mathematical modeling and model-based design and operations optimization is essential. As is the ability to collect and manipulate operational data; and to produce clear written reports and presentations. You will also need to be familiar with modelling and optimisation tools (e.g. Matlab, gPROMS, Aspen). Knowledge of biotechnology/bioprocessing is a plus, but is not pre-emptive.

The post is available immediately. The appointment is for 18 months in the first instance, with the possibility of extension based on performance. The post is based in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London (South Kensington Campus).

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Dr. Gonzalo Guilln-Goslbez ( and Dr. Benot Chachuat (
