Project Description

This is a great opportunity to join the Centre for Advanced Food Enginomics and be supervised by a collaborative research team involving engineers, scientist and clinician from the University of Sydney and also a biotech company, located in Sydney, Australia to address one of the major problems in delivery of peptides and proteins.

This is an industry-based project which will provide a great opportunity for a candidate who seeks to obtain skills and higher degree with opportunity of direct employment in related industry.

This is a research project with high potential for research translation and commercial application.

It is anticipated that the technology and formulation will be used in large scale plant either in Australia or overseas. In this project the candidate will develop an effective formulation and a bioprocess to enhance the functionality and efficacy of a drug that is broadly used.
Developing a formulation that increases the efficacy will reduce the dosage and also the cost significantly. It will also enhance the drug bioavailability.

Project eligibility:


• Applicants must hold master degree or equivalent from reputable institutes with strong academic background in Engineering, pharmaceutical processing, protein chemistry, drug delivery and formulation preferably with or Chemistry.
• A demonstrated knowledge or experience in fermentation processing and bioprocesses for protein production, purification, characterisation and formulation will be desirable will be desirable.
• It will be ideal that candidate has industry experience in commercial scale fermentation process.
• An ability to work both independently and collaboratively across different research disciplines and industry.
• Excellent communication and interpersonal skills with high levels of competency in both written and spoken English.
