Postdoctoral Research Assistant **Internal Only**

Department: School of Engineering & Materials Science
Salary: £32956 (Grade 4)
Reference: QMUL12655
Date posted: 11-Sep-2017
Closing date: 26-Sep-2017

Job profile Apply online

Overview:

Applications are invited for a 6 months Postdoctoral Research Associate position, to work on an industry-funded project focusing on the characterisation of polymer coatings adhering to bioceramics, within the group of Dr Julien Gautrot.

Polymer coatings are particularly important in the field of biomaterials as they control protein and cell adhesion and, in turn, the performance of implants and devices used in biomedical engineering. In the field of oral care, bioadhesion and mineralisation are controlled by surface chemistry and the understanding of molecules regulating such processes is particularly important to maintain a healthy mineralised tissue and prevent biofilm and plaque formation. This project aims to characterise cell derived polymer adhesion to bioceramic model surfaces, using a combination of ellipsometry, AFM, FTIR and confocal microscopy. The parameters controlling such adhesion and allowing to further regulate protein adhesion, mineralisation and cell spreading and proliferation will be of particular interest.

Our research group has a strong track-record in the field of materials science, biomaterials science and polymer coatings (see Chem. Rev. 2014, Biomaterials 2010, 2012, Nature Materials 2012, Nature Cell Biology 2010 and Integrative Biology 2013). See our webpage (http://biointerfaces.qmul.ac.uk/) for further details. The successful candidate will join our multidisciplinary team and build a strong expertise in the characterisation of naturally derived polymer coatings adhering to bioceramics, for oral care applications.

Applicants should have, or be about to gain, a PhD or equivalent in Materials Science and Engineering, Chemistry or equivalent subjects. Experience in the field of polymer coatings and their characterisation (in particular via ellipsometry, AFM, confocal microscopy and FTIR), as well as cell culture is particularly desirable.

The post is full time and fixed term for 6 months. The project, funded by GSK, is expected to start on 20th October 2017. The salary £32956 per annum and is inclusive of London allowance. Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave and a defined benefits scheme.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Please contact Dr Julien Gautrot (j.gautrot@qmul.ac.uk) for further details and application.

The closing date for applications is 26th September 2017.
