EPSRC CDT in Advanced Biomedical Materials

Applications will open in late 21 (December) to qualified graduates for fully-funded four-year PhD studentships in the area of Advanced Biomedical Materials.

We have an extensive supervisory team based at The University of Manchester and the University of Sheffield working on a wide variety of projects that will address clinical and industrial needs.

The areas of research are very wide ranging and multidisciplinary. Major themes include additive manufacturing, bioelectronics and modelling, fibre technology and pre-clinical characterisation.

Within these larger themes, more defined project areas are in electrical and mechanical stimulation for bone tissue engineering via bioreactors, 3D scaffolds for a variety of tissue engineering applications and made via a variety of manufacturing methods, bioinspired and bioactive materials, nanomaterials, stem cells, conductive materials and biosensors.

Together, our large and diverse supervisory team covers almost all cell and tissue types, a broad range of biomaterials and scaffolds from hydrogels and polymers through to ceramics and metals, and many areas of unmet clinical need.

Fully funded places are available to UK nationals and a small number of funded places may be offered to international students. (See our website for more details on who may be classed as 'national' and 'international'). If successful, support for your PhD is likely to be in the region of (minimum £4,407 per year) for tuition fees plus a stipend of approximately £15,285 per year for your living costs, which is paid to you in regular instalments.
