Job description

School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences

Full-time (37 hours per week); Fixed-term to 30/04/2027

The overarching aim of the project is to develop a unique regenerative platform technology applying bioinstructive cell-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) to promote skin rejuvenation at the molecular level. Research will be conducted in the lab of Dr Owen Davies and contribute toward the ongoing development of a range of pioneering vesicle therapeutics. This project will advance the group's current research into acellular approaches in regenerative medicine, leveraging this knowledge to design new therapeutic modalities for maintaining skin health and function as we age. This exciting project will enable the applicant to work at the interface of science and commercialisation.

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher who has experience of undertaking research in an area of dermal biology/chemistry, bioengineering and/or extracellular vesicle biology, as well as a practical and theoretical understanding of cellular/acellular therapeutics and their translation.

This full-time post is offered on a fixed-term contract until 30/04/2027.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Owen Davies, Senior Lecturer in Regenerative Biology, via email to [email protected] or by telephone to 01509 226420.

Closing date for applications - 7 April 2024
