Project overview:


Swansea University is seeking a top class candidate to undertake a PhD studentship in the field of nano biotechnology and nanomedicine. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work in interdisciplinary and dynamic research environment. The project will involve developing macro and nanoscale spectroscopic methods including micro-Raman, tip-enhanced Raman and infra-red spectroscopy and imaging to understand cellular surface chemistry with an aim of developing cyber physical systems for early diagnosis of diseases. You will be based at the Department of Chemistry, and work in a dynamic collaborative environment with the Centre for Nano Health, Swansea University Medical School and industry partners. Such research will enable faster and cheaper diagnostic methods required in industrialised as well as in the developing world. This PhD studentship offers an exciting opportunity to combine optical spectroscopy, data analytics and machine learning. 


Swansea University strongly encourages research collaboration worldwide and there may be opportunities for short term secondment in internationally leading laboratories in the UK or abroad. This opportunity also provides a substantial tax free stipend equivalent to many graduate jobs.
