School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering - Department of Chemical Engineering
This project is part of a multi-institutional EPSRC programme; Made Smarter Innovation – Digital Medicines Manufacturing Research Centre which involves 3 universities (Strathclyde, Loughborough, and Cambridge) and key industrial players from the pharmaceutical and digital technology sectors. This project will be based in the Department of Chemical Engineering in the School of Aeronautical, Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering (AACME). Following a recent £25 million refurbishment, the department houses a range of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and a modern office environment.
We are committed to achieving equality for all those who learn and work here and providing a diverse and inclusive working environment. We will consider reasonable adjustments commensurate with the project requirements.
Full project details
The overall objective of the Digital Medicines Manufacturing Research Centre is to accelerate the adoption of industrial digital technologies in the pharmaceutical sector to transform medicines development, manufacturing, quality control and supply chain, reduce costs, lead time and wastes and enhance flexibility and resilience. The achievement of these objectives requires the development of data-driven and model-based digital regulatory Quality Control (QC) approaches along with artificial intelligence and model-based real-time optimisation, fault detection and process control which represent the overall deliverables of the Digital QC platform. We are seeking to recruit a talented and enthusiastic Research Associate to conduct research on QC Digital Twins and real time release testing. The objective is to develop and experimentally validate key industrial digital technologies as part of the Digital QC platform in collaboration with our research and industrial partners, including the Data, Autonomous MicroScale plant, and Supply Chain platforms.
