Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in reaction engineering, flow chemistry, control system engineering and nanoparticle synthesis? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research intensive Universities? Do you want to be part of an EU funded international innovation programme?

You will form a critical part of the Leeds team which are leading this ambitious and exciting international project SABYDOMA.

You will develop a micro-meso-fluidic system for nanoparticle synthesis and couple it with an automated control system also developed in this project by another Research Fellow, to automatically optimize nanoparticle quality in real-time based on the detected quality of the particles being produced. This is an Innovation project and during the project lifetime, the developed technology will be transferred to several partner companies.

You will have a PhD (or close to completion) in chemical reaction engineering or a closely allied discipline, with a strong background in micro-meso-fluidic system design and experience in nanoparticle synthesis and characterisation, and flow chemistry and continuous processing.
