PhD Studentship in Biological Sensors, De Montfort University, UK

An exciting and challenging PhD studentship has become available in the development of nano-scale materials and their applications within the field of biological sensors.

The project will be run jointly between the School of Pharmacy and the Emerging Technologies Research Centre at De Montfort University, and is truly interdisciplinary in nature.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop skills in material development, synthesis and characterisation and eventually device fabrication and testing.

In doing so, the student will have the opportunity to study a range of techniques such as the solution synthesis of nanomaterials, scanning probe microscopy and plasma deposition of electronic materials.

An enthusiastic student who enjoys working in a multidisciplinary environment is being sought. The studentship is fully-funded, covering University tuition fees and provides a bursary. Both national and international candidates can apply for the studentship.


  • Prospective candidates should have an urge to learn about electronic materials/devices and biosensors and have a 1st class or 2.1 undergraduate degree in electrical or electronic engineering, physics, chemistry, materials science or a related subject.
  • Knowledge of and experience in deposition techniques and exposure to a device fabrication environment would be an advantage, but is not essential.
