Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership 2 (MIBTP) is a BBSRC-funded doctoral training partnership between the University of Warwick, the University of Birmingham and the University of Leicester. The Group of Advanced Materials and Electrochemistry Research ( www.ampere.technology ) at the University of Birmingham is recruiting an excellent student for one 4-year studentships starting in Oct 2018. This student would do a year of training and start their PhD research in Oct 2018.
The project “Affordable ligand-based electrochemical detection of bacterial toxins” will be delivering in collaboration with Dr.Francisco Fernandez-Trillo (School of Chemistry and School of Pharmacy, University of Birmingham) and Dr Matthew I. Gibson (Medical School, University of Warwick). In this cross-disciplinary project we will work towards the development of affordable electrochemical sensors to monitor pathogenic concentrations of bacterial toxin in aqueous solutions.
