Project Description

A fully funded studentship is available to work on an interdisciplinary project commencing as soon as possible.

The project aims to develop a novel plasmonic or metamaterial structure that can be incorporated into an integrated microfluidic system in order to identify and sort biological cells. The work will be in collaboration with Nissan Chemicals (Japan) and build upon our current expertise of Raman activated cell sorting using a 3D flow focusing microfluidic system.

After an initial familiarization with the techniques involved, an objective will be to develop plasmonic based nano-scale sensing patterns that magnify the sample’s spectroscopic signal. This should significantly enhance the performance of our current system and allow it to detect a wider range of samples. It is expected that the advanced system will have a broad range of applications, and within the lifetime of the project, its potential in clinical diagnosis will be evaluated.

Applicants should hold an upper second or first class degree (or equivalent) in Engineering,Physics, Chemistry or a Biological subject (with interests that broadly encompass fields such as Engineering, optical physics, technology, microsystems, spectroscopy/optics and/or biotechnology). A keenness to make things is a key feature of the project and prospective students should be well-motivated and able to work within an interdisciplinary environment.

For informal discussion and applications, please contact Dr Andrew Glidle with a CV at Email:[email protected]
