  Laser tools for orthopedic surgery
  Dr B Peterson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a need for effective cutting systems for generating fine-scale cuts into bone during orthopaedic surgery. Various approaches have been tried, including for example ultrasonic devices, but so far no appropriate technique has been identified other than mechanical saws and drills for larger, much rougher cutting.
  Predicting fracture risk in metastatic bone disease: A combined finite element modelling and machine learning approach
  Prof P Pankaj
Application Deadline: 18 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The femur (or thighbone) is a common site for the growth of tumours due to different types of cancers that originate elsewhere but spread to the bone.
  Monitoring of Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour SEBE0035
  Prof H Yu
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ambulatory assessments (AA) comprises the use of field methods to assess the ongoing behaviour, physiology, experience and environmental aspects of people in the natural setting.
  Targeted Anti-Microbial Photodynamic Therapy: infection model development and evaluation
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr KD Dhaliwal, Dr B Mills
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As part of a recently awarded EPSRC grant, we are seeking a microbiology student with excellent practical laboratory skills to develop a range of infection models; including skin, wound and cornea, and evaluate these with photodynamic therapy (PDT), imaging and sensing techniques utilising low-cost devices built within the broader project.
  Doctor of Engineering (Eng D): Ultra-High-Q Integrated Optical Microresonators for Frequency Comb Generation (NPL)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Prof M Sorel
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrated photonics is a major emerging technological field with the potential for massive impact on the biomedical, security, defence, transportation, telecoms and other sectors.
  Wearable Sensors and Soft Robots for Biomedical Applications
  Dr M Amjadi
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Integrated Soft Machines Lab in the Institute of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering (IMPEE) at Heriot-Watt University is offering a 3-year fully funded PhD studentship to explore wearable sensors and soft robots for biomedical applications.
  Laser-based manufacture of a micro-needle sensing platform for electrophysiology testing
  Prof D P Hand, Dr M Crichton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we seek to develop a multi-mode microneedle sensor that can measure electrical properties and physical tissue changes concurrently.
  Process Modelling and Optimisation of Biomolecular Separations for Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
  Dr D Gerogiorgis, Dr M Luberti
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rapid design and deployment of efficient biopharmaceutical production lines in light of exogenous uncertainty worldwide is a pressing societal need, as global health and safety risks loom, new pathogens appear and aggressive infectious diseases induce a demand of vaccines and reliable therapeutics in a matter of months (or even weeks) as opposed to years.
  Biopharmaceutical process modelling and optimisation for advanced manufacturing of critical biotherapeutics
  Dr D Gerogiorgis, Dr M Luberti
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ever-increasing quest for rapidly designing and deploying efficient biopharmaceutical production lines worldwide is timely more than ever, as mankind faces global health and safety risks, from ageing to epidemics and from well-understood ailments to new pathogens.

Our MSc by Research in Regenerative Medicine and Tissue is a one-year, full-time, on-campus Masters programme structured around two laboratory-based research projects.
  Structure-property relationship in solid tumours – An integrated experimental and computational approach towards more effective early cancer diagnosis
  Dr Y Chen, Prof RL Reuben
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological tissue often has unique three-dimensional hierarchical microstructures and morphologies, constantly evolving through their development and patho-physiological stages.
  Building novel in vitro models to generate musculoskeletal interfaces using 3D bioprinting
  Dr J Paxton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Musculoskeletal interfaces are the areas of the body where tissue types meet, for example the bone-tendon, bone-cartilage and muscle-tendon junctions.
