Project Details

We are excited to announce a new PhD position that is a collaboration between the University of Strathclyde, the National Physical Laboratory, and Precision NanoSystems. We are looking for applicants to join this exciting project and work to develop lipid nanoparticles that can be manufactured using flexible and adaptive processes, which can be scaled up and down in a rapidly responsive mode.

 

If you are someone with a passion for science and working across scientific interfaces and you are ambitious, self-motivated with the skills to develop new ideas and use nanotechnology to generate big ideas. Then this PhD is an ideal opportunity for you. You will also need to be a UK student who has at least an Upper Second-Class Honours degree in a biological or chemical science or a related subject.


By joining this collaboration, you will gain from a world-class research programme in the fields of lipid nanoparticles, mRNA vaccines, and microfluidics. As a PhD student you will join the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences, a leading centre for research and training focused on the discovery, development, and delivery of better medicines. Our campus is based right in the very heart of Glasgow. National Geographic named Glasgow as one of its ’Best of the World’ destinations, while Rough Guide readers have voted Glasgow the world’s friendliest city.

We look forward to hearing from interested candidates. Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Yvonne Perrie (yvonne.perrie@strath.ac.uk).
