Applications are invited for a Research Associate in Graphene Biochemical Engineering post within the Nanomedicine Laboratory at the University of Manchester.
Position holder will contribute to the research programme of the Nanomedicine Lab in the development of research to investigate the development of surface-modified graphene and other 2D materials for applications on the interface with living cells and tissues. He will be expected to contribute to the synthesis, functionalization, characterization and use of various graphene-based materials (graphene oxide, exfoliated graphene, other 2D material) in collaboration with other researchers within the Nanomedicine Lab, the University of Manchester, as well as other external laboratories.
Applicants will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science or biochemistry. They will also have demonstrable previous experience in the chemistry and functionalization of carbon or 2D nanomaterials (preferably carbon nanotubes and graphene) with different cell types and tissue models. They will be able to interact effectively with researchers from a range of other disciplines to contribute to the programme of research. Evidence of a developing research publication track record would be advantageous.
