Position: Research Fellow in Supply Chain Economics for Biotherapeutic Pandemic Preparedness
Institution: University College London
Department: Biochemical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: This position will focus on the development of supply chain economic models for biotherapeutics and vaccines to map out optimal solutions for mass production for pandemic preparedness across a network of regional response sites. The potential of novel facility designs using integrated all-in-one platforms (also known as micro-facilities or GMP-in-a-box) to enable regional manufacture will be explored
Requirements: The candidate will possess knowledge of research techniques in the field of engineering economics, evolutionary optimisation algorithms, with background knowledge of biochemical engineering. A PhD degree in a relevant subject area is required (e.g. Biochemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering). Advanced research and project management skills are essential, as well as an ability to work in a multidisciplinary collaborative and teamwork environment with excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills

The Vax-Hubs vision is to make the UK the global centre for integrated discovery through to bioprocess manufacture of next generation vaccines and is currently undertaking research into vaccine technologies designed to benefit low to middle income countries, including adenovirus based vaccines. This position will focus on the development of supply chain economic models for biotherapeutics and vaccines to map out optimal solutions for mass production for pandemic preparedness across a network of regional response sites. The potential of novel facility designs using integrated all-in-one platforms (also known as micro-facilities or GMP-in-a-box) to enable regional manufacture will be explored. The project will investigate the capacity infrastructure required with different facility designs for different modalities such as viral vector vaccines versus therapeutic antibodies with standard and intensified process platforms. The postholder will link stochastic cost of goods modelling with drug development and supply chain modelling and integrate these with multi-objective heuristic optimization algorithms. The postholder will create user-friendly interfaces and full documentation for the software tools so as to facilitate dissemination and demonstration of the tools. Duration of the post is available to start immediately for one year in the first instance. Key Requirements The candidate will possess knowledge of research techniques in the field of engineering economics, evolutionary optimisation algorithms, with background knowledge of biochemical engineering. A PhD degree in a relevant subject area is required (e.g. Biochemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering). Advanced research and project management skills are essential, as well as an ability to work in a multidisciplinary collaborative and teamwork environment with excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills. Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £31,542 - £33,257 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
