An exciting opportunity has arisen to work as part of a collaborative project between the University of Southampton and the Oral Health R&D team at Haleon (formally GlaxoSmithKline) in Weybridge, UK.
This project aims to transfer knowledge of 3D imaging techniques to the Oral Health R&D team at Haleon and identify where they could be used to enhance hypersensitivity toothpaste formulation efficacy testing. At the same time the project will look to use 3D imaging to enhance the understanding of the hypersensitivity formulation’s effects on the dental tissues and provide visual marketing material to support evidence-based product advertising.
This is a unique opportunity to be embedded within a major pharmaceutical company, to experience and assist the different teams involved in the four-stage product development process.

The post is full time, fixed term for 11 months and will be primarily (~70%) based at Haleon in Weybridge, with the other (~30%) at the University of Southampton.
