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
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
