Project Description

Bioelectronics is an exciting new field at the intersection of the life and physical sciences with the central theme of creating new medical therapies through the connection of biological structures with modern electronics. This project will involve basic studies of how to connect the physics of biological signals (predominantly carried by ions and protons) with the electron-hole currents in semiconductors. In particular, the research will be focused on the key challenge of solid-state ion-to-electron transduction and push the limits of current technology to create ‘bioelectronic logic’.

Entry requirements

Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
