The Hub?s vision is to make the UK the global centre for integrated discovery through to bioprocess manufacture of next generation vaccines. Manufacturing vaccines today is inefficient due to use of serial batch operations in large complex facilities that require highly trained operators and extensive quality testing throughout production. Fixed costs associated with manufacturing can reach 90% of total vaccine costs. Innovation is essential to overcome these persistent challenges in order to reach more people with vaccines, particularly children and those in low and middle income countries (LMICs). A new Research Fellow position in is now available with end date 31st March 2021. The position is based in London in the Biochemical Engineering Department at UCL. The project focuses on the development and optimisation of an upstream platform for processing microbial systems to produce high quality vaccines with the view to create a robust design space for scale-up and manufacture. The department of Biochemical Engineering at UCL has excellent research facilities including a new bioprocessing suite of vaccines-dedicated laboratories and a full-scale ?25m bioprocessing pilot plant. The researcher will join a team of UCL-based Research fellows working as part of the Vax-Hub, as well as a number of academic and industrial collaborators. Excellent team-working and communication skills will be required. The post holder will be responsible for undertaking original experimental research, reporting on project progress and the preparation and submission of research papers arising from these and related studies. Key Requirements The candidate should hold a PhD in a relevant discipline (Biochemical Engineering, Bioprocessing, Biotechnology) and possess extensive experience in fermentation technology and one or more of the following areas: vaccine process design, relevant analytical techniques.
