    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The deterioration of water quality, caused by climatic/seasonal changes, global-warming, or industrial waste etc. is a major global concern. Water quality directly impacts our lives as drinks or food made from it affect the health. This project is a part of a multidisciplinary team that will work on novel sensor network for water quality monitoring. The PhD candidate will be involved in developing new sensors and sensor instrumentation using CMOS or non-CMOS hardware.

The candidate should have knowledge in CMOS electronics, particularly in low-power readout circuits for sensor interface. Knowledge in wireless transceiver is desirable. The candidate should also have some exposure to cleanroom facilities and is expected to do some CMOS post-processing.

The project is part of AQUASENSE, a multi-site Innovative Training Network (ITN) comprising 14 internationally reputed research teams. The candidate will have ample opportunity to travel between partner countries and will also get an opportunity for a secondment at a different organization.
