Join BonLab as a Post Doc

Fixed Term Contract for 12 months

Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to work in the BonLab under the supervision of Stefan A. F. Bon. The research project will develop innovative polymer dispersions containing liquid crystalline material for display technologies in close collaboration with an industrial partner. 

You must have completed (or be soon to complete) a PhD or equivalent in synthetic polymer and/or colloid science. A proven ability in innovative and effective experimental research is essential and you should be skilled in the use of techniques for synthesis and characterization of macromolecules, hybrid materials, and/or colloidal particles. An interest and aptitude for unravelling synthetic, physical and mechanistic aspects of liquid crystalline colloidal dispersions of sub-micron dimensions in both aqueous and non-aqueous media is essential. 

You will be able to work independently and as part of a research team, aiding in the supervision of junior research workers. You will have a proven track record of publications, excellent communication and scientific writing skills. 

Where you have not yet been awarded your PhD, any offer made to you will be an under-appointment to the post of Research Assistant at a salary of £28,143. Once your PhD has been awarded, you will be appointed to the substantive post of Research Fellow at a salary within the range shown above.
