Job description

Job summary

This Postdoctoral Research Associate position has a one-year duration but is potentially extendable. The work scope is to investigate and further develop a patented, novel and highly promising haemostatic technology, including further research to improve the technology, as well as product development in conjunction with commercialization activities. This technology involves an easily fabricated nano-structural coating on cotton fabric, which enables a hydrophobic resistance to limit blood loss, yet causes quick clotting, bacteria resistance, and extremely easy detachment after clotting. We envision that this new technology can reduce complications in serious accidents and surgeries and generate important impact in medicine. The successful candidate will work with both materials and haematology experts to gain a multi-disciplinary exposure.

Duties and responsibilities

    • Scientific research and product development activities including
    • Fabrication, testing and optimization of nanostructured haemostatic materials
    • Biological assay to determine blood responses to the haemostatic materials
    • Product design, prototyping, and testing of haemostatic devices
    • Presenting findings to colleagues at internal and external meetings and conferences
    • Drafting publications for scientific publication
    • Assisting and supervising post-graduate students and visiting visitors

Essential requirements

    • A PhD (or equivalent) in material science or haematology or relevant fields.
    • Experience in nanofibrous material fabrication, electrospinning, and blood biological assay work will be a plus.
    • Evidence of academic excellence.

Further information

This position is full time and fixed term for 1 year and based at our White City Campus.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range £36,045 - £39,183 per annum.

Closing date: TBC
