New Job Opportunity – Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

White Paper Coordinator

Imperial College London – Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

Location: London
Salary: £35,140 to £43,350 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Contract / Temporary
Placed on: 27th September 2016
Closes: 16th October 2016
Job Ref: EN20160352AM

Fixed Term appointment for 9 months

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.

Zing Organic Semiconductors

22nd – 25th September 2016
Dubrovnik, Croatia

We are pleased to announce the first Zing Conference on Organic Semiconductors. A key element of this Conference is to identify future opportunities, emerging challenges and a discussion of the intellectual frontiers and technological vision for this class of materials. Topics include structure/property guidelines for relevant applications, including organic photovoltaics, spintronics, biological interfaces, light-emitting diodes, field effect transistors and biosensors. One special session will be dedicated to an inclusive and mediated discussion of desirable targets and outcomes envisioned for five and ten year increments of research and development. Contributions are invited in each of these themes interpreted broadly to permit inclusion of the most novel and emerging themes.

Plenary Speakers
Sir Richard Friend, University of Cambridge, UK
George Malliaras, Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint Etienne, France
Jean-Luc Bredas, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia
Takao Someya, University of Tokyo, Japan
