The School of Pharmacy is looking to appoint a dynamic individual with a current demonstrable track record in research related to Pharmaceutical Quality by Design, someone to act as an ambassador for the School and someone who will develop strong links with industry and create opportunities for income generation and research outputs. The successful candidate will be expected to develop independent research programmes and to teach the basic science and technology that underpins the design, development and manufacture of pharmaceutical dosage forms.
The Pharmaceutical Technologies Group (comprises 12 academics from the School of Pharmacy) is developing a coherent research strategy based on the identification of emerging and/or niche areas of research that are complimentary to the pharmaceutical industry''s Quality by Design approach to product development and manufacturing process control. We have recently invested in new facilities (a simulated GMP processing area) to enable collaborative R&D projects with the pharmaceutical industry and new instrumentation for characterizing pharmaceutical materials. We have also invested significantly in the development of new post graduate courses to provide new MSc programmes in Pharmaceutical Quality by Design which are unique and the first of their kind.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in a pharmaceutical or related discipline, publications at a REF quality level (i.e. at least ''international recognised'' in terms of originality, significance and rigour) which are consistent with UoA3, and a specific research expertise that underpins the quality by design approach to pharmaceutical product development and pharmaceutical processing.
