This position is part of a research collaboration between UCD Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering, I-form the SFI Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and Merck Research Labs (Rahway, NJ). The collaboration aims to significantly intensify pharmaceutical synthesis and production through the development of novel 3D-printed reactors and separation unit operations, to enable intensified fully telescoped/integrated continuous flow synthesis, and thereby the manufacture of drugs within miniaturized printable chemical factories.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to take on a leadership position in terms of chemical and process engineering within the multidisciplinary team of synthetic & analytical chemists, chemical engineers and pharmaceutical scientists, based in the UCD O'Brien Science Centre.

The ideal candidate should have experience in the development of, continuous processes/flow chemistry or separation operations (batch or continuous), with complementary experience in process simulation. The purpose of the role is to deliver a specific research project. The role allows the Research Fellow the professional development opportunity to demonstrate the capacity for independent and self-directed research and scholarship and the management of a research team.

The role allows the Fellow to assemble a portfolio of independent achievement and render themselves competitive for tenured academic positions or senior scientific roles in industry.
