Affordable ligand-based electrochemical detection of bacterial toxins

Project Description

The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (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 ( ) at the University of Birmingham is recruiting an excellent student for one 4-year studentships starting in Oct 2020. This student would do a year of training and start their PhD research in Oct 2020.

The project “Affordable ligand-based electrochemical detection of bacterial toxins” will be delivering in collaboration with Dr.Francisco Fernandez-Trillo (School of Chemistry University of Birmingham) and Dr Matthew I. Gibson ( 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.

How to apply:
For further details on the project and informal enquiry please contact Dr. Paramaconi Rodriguez at: P.B.rodriguez(at) or F.Fernandez-Trillo(at)
