Research Fellow in Ultrasound and Drug Delivery

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in pre-clinical ultrasound and drug delivery? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities?

Based in the School of Medicine, but working closely with colleges from the School of Physics and Astronomy, you will work on the pre-clinical translation of therapeutic microbubbles. In both in vitro and in vivo models, you will be evaluating the efficiency of functionalised microbubbles to deliver therapeutic agents using ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging. 

You will have experience of mouse models, including the use of pre-clinical mouse models for experimental research, as well as holding a home office personal licence. Experience of the development of protocols using sterile cell culture assays to study microbubble-cell interactions and working with high frequency ultrasound for pre-clinical imaging is also essential.
