Be bold.  Be innovative.  Be a 'Strathclyder'

We are the University of Strathclyde. Our vision is bold and ground breaking, placing us amongst the world’s leading international technological universities. We are vibrant, dynamic and passionate about solving the challenges facing society and industry through our cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge-exchange with global partners.

Through our Strathclyde Global Talent Programme we will recruit up to 60 outstanding academic colleagues – including Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellows - in areas of strategic importance.  One area of importance is Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences: Designing and Delivering Next Generation. 
This multi-disciplinary research initiative will exploit technological advances and provide a new era of medicine design, manufacture and patient care. Key areas are:
•    Pharmacoepidemiology and Digital Health. Using real world, real time dynamic data to inform strategies for sustainable improvement in safe and effective medicines. 
•    Biopharmaceutics and formulation. Supporting the development and addressing the barriers of biologically based therapies. These include effective design and formulation to create viable medicines though better design, formulation and delivery.
•    Medicines Manufacture: Delivering manufacturing processes suitable for modern stratified, personalised medicine which is no longer reliant on batch production.

Normally appointed at Lecturer level, the Fellowship will last for 5 years during which you will be supported to establish your career as a research leader and achieve rapid career progression. Fellows who meet the criteria for promotion by the end of the 5 year period will be transferred to an open-ended ("tenured" equivalent) academic appointment.  You will also benefit from research portfolio growth, reduced teaching load and administrative duties and a range of support.

You will hold a PhD, have postdoctoral research experience, an emerging high quality publications record and research interests which align with our strategic focus.  You must be able to articulate your research vision.
