The objective is to apply the controlled/living polymerization approach on multivinyl monomers (MVMs) for the design and preparation of novel single-chain cyclized/knot polymers and demonstrate their potentials in biomedical applications, in particular, for the treatment of the rare skin fragility disorder, Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB). The successful candidate will work as part of a well-established and dynamic research team in the UCD Charles Institute of Dermatology.

This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.

In addition to the Principal Duties and Responsibilities listed below, the successful candidate will also carry out the following duties specific to this project:

  • Fulfil reporting requirements, working closely with the PI
  • Co-supervise PhD students
  • Be responsible for the preparation, bio-functionalization and evaluation of the polymers for the project.
