Position: Research Fellow EPSRC Frontier Engineering Centre for Nature Inspired Engineering
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The CNIE, funded by an EPSRC Frontier Engineering: Progression Award, has an opportunity for a postdoctoral research associate with outstanding interdisciplinary research background, exceptional creativity and problem-solving skills. The candidate is expected to have a keen interest in nature-inspired solutions, complex systems and sustainability, with a background in chemical, energy, environmental or biomedical technology, or related fields
Requirements: PhD in chemical or mechanical engineering, materials science, physical sciences or related. Extensive experience in experimentation and analysis (chemistry, materials, physics and/or biological systems) for principally experimentalists, and extensive programming and analytical experience for theoreticians. Experience of working in a research environment; Experience of multi-disciplinary working, including initiating research with a complementary technique.

The candidate is expected to have a keen interest in nature-inspired solutions, complex systems and sustainability, with a background in chemical, energy, environmental or biomedical technology, or related fields. The CNIE utilises a unique, systematic methodology, which encompasses the application of fundamental mechanisms underpinning desirable features in biological and other natural systems (like scalability, robustness and efficiency) to solve challenging engineering problems. More details and examples of current projects can be found on our website: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/nature-inspired-engineering/. The post relates specifically to Theme 4 of the CNIE (Ecosystems, Control and Modularity). CNIE projects are collaborative and involve researchers from different disciplines, from catalysis and biomedical engineering to architecture. We expect candidates to be outward looking, with strong lateral thinking skills, and the proven ability to work across traditional disciplines. We strongly encourage applications from underrepresented groups. The position is available until 30th November 2022 in the first instance. Key Requirements PhD in chemical or mechanical engineering, materials science, physical sciences or related. Extensive experience in experimentation and analysis (chemistry, materials, physics and/or biological systems) for principally experimentalists, and extensive programming and analytical experience for theoreticians. Experience of working in a research environment. Experience of multi-disciplinary working, including initiating research with a complementary technique.
