Imperial College London is a science-based institution with the greatest concentration of high-impact research of any major UK university. You can find out more about our staff benefits here: http://www.imperial.ac.uk/job-applicants/staff-benefits/.
The Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering (IMSE) seeks an outstanding individual to establish a new series of White Papers that will shape the discourse in molecular science and engineering and play a key role in communicating the depth and breadth of Imperial’s expertise and insight to key commercial innovators and other stakeholders.
This new post is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a recently established and fast growing global institute at Imperial, whose goal is to establish a new collaborative approach to grand challenge problems with a molecular dimension. This approach is based on the integration of innovation in molecular science with engineering of technological solutions. Although there are a growing number of examples where this approach has proven successful, the prevailing culture in research and development is for the loose coupling of research projects performed within well-established disciplines. The shift to a fully integrated innovation cycle requires a significant change in perspective of individual research groups, departments, faculties, funding agencies and commercial sponsors.
IMSE is committed not only to stimulating and supporting integrated research but also to making real inroads into technological grand challenges. Collaborating with industry and influencing external stakeholders is crucial to this. These papers are designed to inform funding agencies, policy makers and potential commercial partners of the power of this integrated approach of science and engineering.
