  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The project involves the design and build of a prototype robot used for the manipulation of micro-sized objects such as biological cells. The focus of the project will be on the development of an intelligent micro-gripper with the ability to manipulate the cell to a desired position with precise accuracy. The project will require an interest/background in robotic, mechatronics, and/or control engineering.

Funding Notes

For excellent applicants (very good first degree), there is the potential for funding for Home (UK) / EU students that will cover fees and a stipend of £14,400 un-taxed. Overseas students are welcome to apply but should note that they will be required to be either completely self-funding, or if awarded a scholarship, they should be able to pay for their living expenses.
