This PhD project will be focused on the fabrication of multifunctional fibres based on nanomaterials (graphene and carbon nanotubes) with high-performance sensing and actuation properties to develop of a new generation of wearable sensors and health monitoring devices.
The duration of the PhD is 3 years and the proposed start date is September 2019.
EU nationals must have lived in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the programme to be eligible for a full award (fees and stipend). We are looking to fill this post as soon as possible.
This project is also open to self funded students (worldwide).
You will also work with Dr. Cristina Vallés from the National Graphene Institute.
There are a small number of DTA awards available in The University of Manchester. This award would cover home fees and a stipend of £15,009 per year. These awards are open to UK and EU students.
