We are recruiting PhD students to work on any of our research areas of interest:
- Stimuli-responsive nanomaterials as imaging probes to detect microbial pathogens.
- Nanomaterials to interfere with ‘non-conventional’ targets of bacterial infection such as adhesion, quorum sensing or bacterial membranes.
- Functional nanomaterials for the delivery of conventional antibiotics in a targeted way.
These PhD studentships are funded through the MIBTP (Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership). This is a 1 year Masters, followed by 3 Year PhD programme and each year (stipend and fees) is fully funded. The MIBTP is a highly competitive and prestigious PhD programme and early application is essential. Deadline for application is 10th of January 2016.
