Description

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Experimental Optics

Department of Chemistry, Kavli Institue for NanoScience Discovery, New Biochemistry Building, Oxford, OX1 3QU Grade 7: £33,309 - £40,927 per annum

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Experimental Optics to work under the supervision of Professor Philipp Kukura for a period of 2 years in the first instance. The project is part of a wider programme of work to develop and implement the advances needed to realise the potential of mass photometry as a transformative technology for molecular biophysics, drug discovery and diagnostics. The project aims at both significantly improving existing experimental approaches to mass photometry, and developing completely new approaches by transforming the associated optical platform.

Applicants must hold a PhD in Physics, Engineering or a related area or be close to completion, prior to taking up your appointment. The research requires experience with the design, construction and interfacing of complex optical experimental setups, ideally in the broader field of optical microscopy. You will be encouraged to develop high levels of independence in your academic research and administrative activities, as well as contributing to a number of additional projects ongoing in the research group that are of relevance to your project.

Duties include managing own academic research and administrative activities. This involves small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines and testing hypotheses and analyse scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate .

The post will be based in the Kavli Institute for Nanoscience Discovery, New Biochemistry Building, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3QU and is available immediately.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 17 December 2021. Interviews will be held remotely as soon as possible thereafter, or in person when that is feasible.

The University of Oxford is a Bronze Athena SWAN holder and the Department of Chemistry is a Silver award holder. Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and ethnic minority candidates, who are under-represented in Chemistry research posts in Oxford.
