Applications are invited from 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. Students will have the chance to develop projects with over 50 internationally leading academics and clinicians in this cross-faculty and cross-university CDT.
Projects will be designed during the end of Semester 1 and beginning of Semester 2, based on student interest, supervisory team interest, and industrial/clinical need, and after a variety of project selection activities.
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.
Candidates should be from the UK/EU and should have obtained or be about to obtain a First or Upper Second class UK honours degree, or an overseas equivalent. The degree should be in a relevant area of science or engineering.
