Micro-manufacturing of surface textures for enhanced electrosurgery

3 years full time 1st April 2021, 1st July 2021 or 1st October 2021. Electrosurgery is a medical procedure that uses an alternating and high frequency current (200 kHz-3.3 MHz) to either cut and/or coagulate tissues and achieve haemostasis. Read more

Photodetectors for Neuromorphic and Smart Imaging Applications

Supervisory Team.   Dr Dimitra Georgiadou. Project description. This PhD studentship aims at exploring advanced materials and novel nanopatterning techniques to develop the next generation of printable and flexible photodetectors. Read more

Optimal Design of Nacre-like materials

Natural living materials, such as nacre or seashells, are biological and hierarchical composite materials, They are made of very strong and stiff nano-sized single crystal mineral plates embedded in a very soft and ductile protein matrix material. They have excellent mechanical properties in strength, stiffness and fracture toughness. .

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize. Read more

Radiation-Hard Electronics

Supervisory Team.   Dr Firman Simanjuntak, Prof Themis Prodromakis. Project description. This PhD studentship aims at developing radiation-hardened memristive artificial synapses for enabling artificial intelligence hardware accelerators in space. Read more

Hardware-AI accelerated neural interfacing with the injured brain

Supervisory Team:  Dr Romeo Racz, Prof Themis Prodromakis. Project description. The brain produces in 30 seconds as much data as the Hubble Space Telescope in its entire lifetime. Read more

Nano biomechanics

In recent years there has been a surge in interest in techniques to measure mechanical properties of living tissue and cells. Biomechanics, especially at the micro and nano-scales are an important aspect of cell and tissue biology as they play an important role in health and disease. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT)

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT), at the University of Cambridge, is looking for aspirational, enthusiastic and open-minded students to join its vibrant environment. Read more

Microfluidic assays for in-field pathogen detection

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)- and Ribonucleic acid (RNA)-based techniques provide a powerful toolkit for the early detection, identification and tracking of biosecurity related pathogens and invasive species. Read more

Wireless bioelectrochemistry towards sensing and treating cancer

We are currently seeking applications for a 3 year Ph.D. to join a collaborative international multidisciplinary team to work on a research project aligned with our funded EPSRC’s Healthcare Technology Challenge Award aimed at developing bioelectronic technology to transform healthcare. This is a cross-school Ph.D. Read more

Seeing is believing: Microscopy-capable nanoelectronics for simultaneous optical/electrical study of biomolecules

We are seeking expressions of interest to apply for Australian Government Research Training Program (RTP) scholarships to join us for an interdisciplinary project aimed at developing new bioelectronic sensor technologies for studying membrane proteins at single molecule level by electronic methods.
