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 Professors / Readers - in areas of strategic importance.  One area of importance is Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences: Designing and Delivering Next Generation.

  • Medicines Manufacture: Delivering manufacturing processes suitable for modern stratified, personalised medicine which is no longer reliant on batch production.

Our Professors and Readers enjoy a range of benefits, including a generous remuneration package; notable additional financial and non-financial benefits; excellent start-up support; initially reduced teaching and management load; and regular career review, with the opportunity to receive additional remuneration in recognition of extraordinary contribution.

  • Publishing in leading international journals;
  • Pursuing funding opportunities from both UK and international sources;
