Post Doctoral researcher; Virtual Formulation Laboratory

The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology in the Faculty of Engineering and Science at the University of Greenwich requires a capable and enthusiastic addition to the Research team to work as part of a consortium involving 3 other Universities around the UK. The project objective is to develop a Virtual Formulation Laboratory (VFL), a software tool for prediction and optimisation of manufacturability and stability of advanced solids-based formulations. The input from this post will be key towards the goal of the development of the VFL Toolkit, tasked to the University of Greenwich as their role in the consortia.
