Project Description

We invite applications for a PhD studentship in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London for 2016-17 entry. A stipend and home/EU fees for 3 years will be awarded to the successful candidate.* Overseas applicants can apply but have to show the evidence that the difference between the overseas fees and home/EU fees can be covered by other funding.

The position will focus on the research and development of new classes of materials and sensor platforms based on commonly available low-cost materials (e.g., porous Si, cellulose paper) and methods (to improve accessibility and availability) for various applications, including but not limited to capturing of physiological signals from humans and animals, diagnosis of diseases, packaging and food safety, and agriculture. There will be a strong emphasis on both basic research and systems development and integration (digitization of data, remote access etc.) with the aim of translation of the developed systems from the lab to the field. After the completion of the program, candidates will have the necessary skillset for academic and industry related careers.

Applicants should have a high calibre Master’s degree (or equivalent qualification) in engineering or physical sciences. A background in chemistry is desired but not necessary. We are looking for highly motivated applicants with excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills but most importantly enthusiasm for exposure to a diversity of scientific projects and passion for developing new technologies.

To apply for this position, please email a single PDF file including: a cover letter describing your interests and research experience, your CV, a copy of transcripts, and names and contact information of two references to Dr Firat Guder () with the subject line “SENSORS-PhD”. Although applications will be accepted until the position is filled, early applications will be given priority.

*The standard PhD studentship covers home/EU tuition fees and provides a bursary (this was £16,057 p.a. for 2015-16, including London weighting).
