Fully-funded PhD Studentship in A novel coating technology based upon polyatomic ions from plasma.
We wish to recruit a full-time Research Associate for 3 years, starting in October 2019. You will work with Dr Timothy E.L. Douglas at the Engineering Department and the Materials Science Institute (MSI) at Lancaster University, applying plasma technology to produce novel coatings for applications in biomedical and life sciences (BLS) and perform their physiochemical characterization. You will also perform microbiological characterization of such coatings under the guidance of Prof. Roger Pickup (Division of Biomedicine), Dr Glenn Rhodes (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology) and Dr Achyut Guleri (Blackpool Hospital Trust).
You must hold a good first degree in a relevant subject (Physics, Chemistry, Material Science or Engineering), or be able to demonstrate significant practical experience with the generation and characterization of coatings.
Applications can only be accepted from UK/EU candidates. We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
For more information, please contact Dr Timothy E.L. Douglas at: [Email Address Removed].
This project is funded by Lancaster University but supported by an EPRSC grant. You will join a top 10-UK university with excellent laboratory facilities and situated in a vibrant research environment. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues at the University of Liverpool and the NHS.
Over a period of three years, you will be offered a yearly stipend of over £14k per annum and a Research Training and Support Grant (RTSG). PhD tuition fees for UK/EU applicants will be covered for three years.
