PhD in Environmental Science: High precision surface exposure dating
Dr R Shanks, Dr D Fabel, Dr T Bradwell
18 January 2019
This project will determine how fast ice caps can melt by analysing the collapse of the ice cap that existed in Scotland about 11600 years ago and disappeared at a time when temperatures rose by 8°C, the same as the temperature rise predicted for the Arctic by 2100.
Advanced microscopy for blood flow field mapping in the heart
Dr J Taylor, Prof A Harvey
13 January 2019
A PhD studentship is available in the Imaging Concepts Group at Glasgow University, developing and applying advanced optical microscopy and computational imaging techniques to measure and study the blood flow and heart function in the developing zebrafish heart.
Nano-assembly of 3D photonic integrated circuits on-a-chip
Dr M Strain, Prof M Dawson
31 March 2019
Start date. October 2019. Duration. 3.5 yrs. Background. Chip scale photonic systems have seen a rapid uptake in a wide range of applications from lab-on-a-chip biosensors to ultra-high speed micro-displays and photonic integrated circuitry.
