Postdoctoral Research Associate (Antimicrobial Drug Delivery) – Grade 7

University of Liverpool

The University of Liverpool is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading research universities in the UK.

We are looking to recruit a Research Fellow to work on the Healthcare Grant: TRIAL: Treatment of Respiratory Infections with inhaled Antimicrobials.  Respiratory infectious diseases are the leading cause of death in the developing countries and the third leading cause of death world-wide. The emergence of the coronavirus disease COVID-19 has posed a significant challenge for global health systems and has highlighted the lack of treatment options available to mitigate these infections. The aim of TRIAL is to design and test polymeric drug delivery vehicles tethered with antimicrobials which will deliver the requisite therapeutic dose to tackle viral and bacterial infections in a controlled manner. The grant is in collaboration with the University of Oxford Respiratory Infection Group.

Any applicants who are still awaiting their PhD to be awarded should be aware that if successful, they will be appointed at grade 6, spine point 30.  Upon written confirmation that they have been successful in being awarded their PhD, they will be moved onto grade 7, spine point 31 from the date of their award.

You will be an experienced individual with well-established skills and expertise to take charge of the materials development side of the project.

This post is available on a fixed term basis until end May 2025. 

The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received
