Research Fellow in the Synthesis of Novel Liquid Crystals

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in Liquid Crystal research? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities?

This is one of two posts to work on a multidisciplinary project aimed at the development the Liquid Crystal Droplets as Diagnostics for Bacterial Infection. The project is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and is a collaboration between staff in the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine and Health.

You will join a dynamic collaborative team led by Professor Helen Gleeson. You must have a PhD degree (or equivalent) in liquid crystal or phospholipid chemistry including experience of organic synthesis but also experience in the physical characterization of liquid crystal or phospholipid systems.

The post is available from 1 June 2017 and is held jointly between the School of Chemistry and School of Physics and Astronomy. It is of a collaborative project in liquid crystal based biosensors involving Chemistry, Physics and the Medical Faculty.
