Position: Research Fellow in Nanocrystals Responsive Manufacturing
Institution: University College London
Department: Chemical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The goal of this project is to develop robust manufacturing platforms for nanocrystals to be employed in healthcare. The post-holder will carry out research in the areas of nanoparticle synthesis, chemical engineering and microfluidics. The research will involve studying (both experimentally and theoretically) various processes that affect nanoparticle synthesis, such as mixing, mass and heat transfer, and residence time distributions. Based on these studies, the post-holder will design, develop and evaluate antisolvent crystallization flow systems for the synthesis of API nanocrystals
Requirements: Candidates must have (or be expected to soon attain) a PhD in chemical engineering, or a closely related discipline. They should have research experience in chemical and/or micro-process engineering, chemical reaction engineering, continuous processing, microfluidics, nanoparticle synthesis and/or nanoparticle characterization technology. They should have experience in conducting high-quality research and have published in relevant high-quality peer-reviewed journals

The post-holder will carry out research in the areas of nanoparticle synthesis, chemical engineering and microfluidics. The research will involve studying (both experimentally and theoretically) various processes that affect nanoparticle synthesis, such as mixing, mass and heat transfer, and residence time distributions. Based on these studies, the post-holder will design, develop and evaluate antisolvent crystallization flow systems for the synthesis of API nanocrystals. The flow systems will be equipped with online process analytical technology (laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering and Raman spectroscopy) to monitor crystal size and polymorphism. The platform capability will be showcased using model APIs. The stability and dissolution properties of the nanocrystals will be quantified to assess the polymorphic form of the products as a function of the processing parameters. This post is funded for 3 years in the first instance. Key Requirements Candidates must have (or be expected to soon attain) a PhD in chemical engineering, or a closely related discipline. They should have research experience in chemical and/or micro-process engineering, chemical reaction engineering, continuous processing, microfluidics, nanoparticle synthesis and/or nanoparticle characterization technology.
