Start of employment   – 31.12.2016
Payment Wage (in €): E13
Duration of employment restricted
Job Description Title: Model-based analysis and optimization of the synthesis

and production chain of poorly soluble drugs

The newly established Center for Pharmaceutical Process Engineering at the Technical University of Braunschweig combines the

Fields of process engineering and pharmacy, in close cooperation processes for production

and formulation of new drug candidates provide cost. The modeling

Process and system level is in charge of the Institute for Energy and Process Systems Engineering

conducted. For the project “Novel synthesis and formulation method for poorly soluble

Drugs and biopharmaceuticals sensitive “at the Institute for Energy and Process Systems Engineering

the earliest possible date a PhD position (E13, temporary) in the area

To occupy Prozess-/Systemmodellierung.

The aim of the project is the development of continuous production in mini-plant scale for

Examples from the drug classes of protein kinases and gold-alkynes.Within the

PhD position stands, the model-based analysis and optimization of the synthesis step and

the production chain in the foreground. Here are models based on material and energy balances

be installed and tested as well as kinetics, which enable process management concepts to

identify and optimize promising a consistent and high product quality.

Requirements We are looking for a (n) Engineer (in) / scientist (in) (diploma or master’s degree) with

Interest in the analysis and modeling in the area of ​​pharmaceutical production technology. The / The

Candidate (in) should have knowledge in modeling and foundations in the field of

Show process engineering and / or chemistry as well as an exceptionally good result. The

Work takes place in an interdisciplinary environment and it is teamwork, creativity and

intensive cooperation within the Centre for Pharmaceutical Engineering expected. The / the

Candidate (in) also requires very good German and good English skills and a willingness

to independently learn new areas. The TU Braunschweig aims to increase the

Proportion of women. Women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply. By request

may be possible to work part time. Disabilities will be at the same fitness
