The University of Bradford is inviting applications for a Propolis Research Associate to join our exciting collaboration with Nature's Laboratory, a leading company in the area of propolis research and natural product manufacturing.
A Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) is a three-way project between a company, a university, and a recently qualified graduate or post-graduate (known as an Associate), which enables the transfer of knowledge, technology, and skills to which the company currently has no access. Supported by the University, KTP Associates manage strategic projects within the company.
The main purpose of this project is to embed within Nature's Laboratory a novel supramolecular chemistry-based gel platform for the development of innovative products.
This is an excellent opportunity for a well-motivated and capable individual to boost his/her career by joining Nature's Laboratory team. At the end of the project, the KTP Associate may be offered the opportunity to join the company on a permanent basis.
You should have a Master's degree in a relevant subject area related to natural products or pharmaceutical sciences or PhD in the relevant field.
The post holder must be an enthusiastic self-motivated person, who can work in an interdisciplinary environment as part of a team, and is reliable, well organised, has an ability to work to tight deadlines when needed in a typical start-up environment. The ideal candidate will be keen to learn and apply new skills and approaches to address the needs of the project.
