Detail information about job PhD Studentship: High Resolution Biosensor for the early Detection of Prostate and Bladder Cancers. Terms and conditions vacancy
Funding: 3.5 years
Supervisors: Dr Jerome Charmet (WMG), Prof Julian Gardner (School of Engineering)
Start Date: October 2017
This PhD project, in collaboration with clinicians, is about the development of micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) based sensors to be integrated in a microfluidic platform for the early detection of prostate and bladder cancers. You will join a dynamic team looking to use and develop advanced engineering approaches to solve real-life problems. As member of the Institute of Digital Healthcare, you will become part of a vibrant research community in a leading University.
You should have an upper-second-class Honours degree or higher or international equivalent, in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, or a related subject. If English is not your first language, you should have IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
Full funding is available for UK/EU students, including cover of tuition fees. A stipend of £14,296 will be paid per annum for 3.5 years.
Overseas students will need to fund the difference between home and overseas fee level.
If you are keen to learn new skills and contribute in truly interdisciplinary research with original research ideas, please get in touch with Dr Jerome Charmet to discuss the details of the project.
