Closing Date Friday, 21st August 2020
Applications are open for up to four PhD studentships at the University of Nottingham, tackling engineering and physical sciences challenges.
These four-year studentships are offered through cohort-based doctoral training programmes. You will study alongside other PhD students and receive tailored training and support. Funding is provided by the EPSRC.
Applications will close when these studentships have been allocated or by Friday 21 August 2020 so you should apply as soon as possible.
Novel complementary diagnostics for improved therapeutics/theranostics
Four PhD studentships are available (individual projects to follow), starting in January 2021. Two will be based at the University of Nottingham and two at the University of Queensland, including a research exchange programme.
These studentships will deliver significant improvements in medical imaging/treatment by the co‑application of a range of biomedical imaging modalities. Development themes include: contrast agents, imaging methods/apparatus, therapeutics delivery and clinical translation.
The supervisory teams will include academics from both institutions. A further four studentships in 2021/22, will make a total cohort of eight students working on linked, interdisciplinary PhD projects. They represent exciting opportunities for graduates of chemistry, engineering, physics, biology and a range of other related scientific disciplines.
University of Nottingham studentships will be hosted by the Centre for Additive Manufacturing and the Precision Imaging Beacon. The University of Queensland host will be the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology (CIBIT), a multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers at the University’s Centre for Advanced Imaging and Medical Technologies, and pharmaceutical industry partners.
Both institutions are Universitas 21 members, an international consortium of leading, research-intensive universities dedicated to strong collaborative engagement.
You should have, or expect to obtain, a 2:1 or above in a relevant discipline.
Fully funded studentships are available for UK applicants, provided by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
If you are an EU applicant and can confirm that you have been resident in the UK for at least three years before October 2020, you may also be eligible for a full award. EU students who are not able to prove that they meet the residency criteria may apply for a fees only award.
Australian citizens/permenant residents can also apply at the University of Queensland, with funding provided by the University and the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology.
If you are successful, you will receive a stipend (£15,285 per year for 2020/21) for up to four years. Funding will also cover your full tuition fees and a Research Training Support Grant.
