Wearable Sensors and Soft Robots for Biomedical Applications


School of Engineering & Physical Sciences

Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
Edinburgh United Kingdom Bioinformatics Biomedical Engineering Chemical Engineering Electrical Engineering Mechanical Engineering Nanotechnology Materials Science

About the Project

The Integrated Soft Machines Lab in the Institute of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering (IMPEE) at Heriot-Watt University is offering a 3-year fully funded PhD studentship to explore wearable sensors and soft robots for biomedical applications.

The PhD project aims to develop stretchable sensors and soft robots utilizing digital manufacturing technologies including 3D printing and laser micromachining. The fabrication process involves incorporation of micro/nanoscale functional materials (e.g., carbon nanotubes, nanowires, and graphene) into stretchable polymers and stimuli-responsive materials in the form of nanocomposites, and subsequent patterning/printing through computer-aided designs. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a dynamic and interdisciplinary research topic that intertwines engineering, materials science, and healthcare technology.

Candidate Requirements

We are looking for a talented and highly motivated PhD student holding (or close to completing) a master’s degree (or international equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, and Electrical Engineering, or a relevant discipline. Applicants with an interest in smart materials, soft robotics, bioelectronics, medical devices, digital manufacturing, and wearable technologies are particularly encouraged to apply.

Application Details

Please send your CV and transcripts to Dr Morteza Amjadi at .


Funding Notes

This project is available to UK/EU applicants only. The annual stipend will be approx. £14,777 and tuition fees will be fully covered.
