The Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde is a vibrant and ambitious Department with a strong reputation for excellence in research and teaching and a strong knowledge exchange portfolio. We have an international research reputation spanning the breadth of chemistry that is reflected in our four research sections; Catalysis & Synthesis, Chemical Biology & Medicinal Chemistry, Materials & Computational, and Bionanotechnology & Analytical Chemistry. In addition, we host centres of excellence in Forensic Science, Molecular Nanometrology, and Process Analytics & Control Technology, as well as being a key contributor to the University’s Centre for Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation.
The University of Strathclyde is now seeking to appoint a new professor with expertise in the area of measurements for health to be located within the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry. This new chair is supported by LGC and will take the lead for the University in the new UK Community for Analytical Measurement Science. The area we wish to build new capability in is broadly covered by the term measurements for health where we envisage the successful candidate to build a successful and sustainable research activity at the interface between measurement science and healthcare applications, in particular digital health. Applications are encouraged but not limited to the following areas:
• New sensing approaches to interface with point of use measurements
• Design of probe molecules to act as reporters for disease analysis
• Integration of analytical chemistry approaches with mobile devices
• Creation of new analytical techniques
• Data-driven analytical technology supporting adaptive bio-manufacturing for novel therapies.
The new Professor will have an independent and internationally-recognised research portfolio in this area of chemistry with a good record of collaboration with industry. We are looking for a proven academic leader, who has the ability to build upon outstanding research intensive activity and to create sustained research excellence in the future.
