PhD Studentship on nanoparticles for therapy

School of Chemistry

Prof Z Pikramenou Monday, March 15, 2021 Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
Birmingham United Kingdom Inorganic Chemistry Pharmaceutical Chemistry Synthetic Chemistry

About the Project

Candidates should have or expect to receive a first or upper second (2.1) honours degree (or equivalent) in chemistry or other related discipline. 

A PhD position is open in an interdisciplinary project involving bioinorganic chemistry and nanoscience. The project involves synthesis of luminescent nanoparticles based on inorganic/organic probes to target the delivery of antimicrobial agents using using external-physical stimulus to trigger drug release while monitoring nanoparticle localisation.

The project is part of a large interdisciplinary network funded by EPSRC to tackle biofilm infections based on a novel particle platform.

The student will be part of a large interdisciplinary team in Chemistry and Dentistry at Birmingham, in collaboration with Chemical Engineering at UCL which is supported by a recent EPSRC award.

Interested applicants should contact Prof Pikramenou in the first instance
