Project Description

This three year PhD position is an exciting industrial/academic collaboration which will afford the appointed student the opportunity to work closely with our partners Midatech Pharma. Project CONTRAsT (Cisplatin analogue gOld Nanoparticles for Tumour RAdiation Therapy) will explore the ability of Midatech’s multi-functional drug-loaded nanoparticles, produced within their GMP manufacturing facility (Bilbao, Spain), to increase the effectiveness of radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. The appointed student will work closely with our industrial partner, agreeing upon the initial nanoparticle formulation. In addition, the student will have access to a range of industrial grade analytical instruments within Midatech, as well as accessing state-of-the-art research facilities within the School of Pharmacy, Queen’s University Belfast. This fully funded project (fees and stipend), commands an attractive consumable budget, ensuring that finances will not limit the quality of the research undertaken.

Funding Notes

Applicants should have a 1st or 2.1 honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. Relevant subjects include Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biochemistry, Biological/Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Engineering, or a closely related discipline. Students who have a 2.2 honours degree and a Master’s degree may also be considered, but the School reserves the right to shortlist for interview only those applicants who have demonstrated high academic attainment to date.
