Swansea University - Wales
We seek an enthusiastic individual with an interest in medical imaging to join a 3-year, EPSRC-funded project in magnetic induction tomography.
This is a technique that maps the internal electrical conductivity of the body and is being developed as a new medical imaging modality.
Of particular interest in this project is the imaging of cerebral stroke and the potential for a new means of rapid diagnosis that could enable a more timely treatment.
There will be opportunities to present results at international conferences.
Although based at Swansea University, you will work as part of an established multi-centre research team involving the Universities of Glamorgan and Manchester, as well as other industrial and academic partners.
You should have a First or Upper Second Class degree, or equivalent, in Physics, Engineering, Mathematics or a related field.
The studentship is available from 1 November with a starting date no later than 1 April.
The stipend will be at the current EPSRC rate, £12,300 per annum. Tuition fees at the rate for European Community students will be funded.
International students need alternative funding for the difference.
