    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Flexible devices such as microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs) have recently received significant attention as a potential platform for low-cost diagnostic assays.

This PhD project is to use reactive inkjet printing to fabricate flexible devices for different applications such as cancer diagnostics, environmental monitoring and energy store etc. The student will be trained to use modern techniques such as 3D reactive inkjet printing, AFM, SEM, TEM, interferometry, FTIR etc. to fabricate the devices and characterize their properties. A combination of relevant experiments such as biological assays and electrochemical tests will also be carried out to evaluate the functions of the fabricated devices.

Applicants should have or expect to gain a first class or upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent if from overseas) in any of the following backgrounds: chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biotechnology, biomaterials, biomedical engineering, pharmaceutics, bioengineering, chemical engineering or a related discipline, or have an appropriate MSc qualification.

Funding Notes

If English is not your first language then you must have International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) certificate with an average of 6.5 or above and at least 6.0 in each component.
