    2020/21-024 - BIOPOLY – Single BIOmolecule detection via an ELISA sandwich assay through the realisation of novel optical POLYmer biosensors for a low cost rapid field deployable diagnostic instrument. The Research Strategy Committee Panel has scored the above highly and as a PRIORITY for the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences and so we encourage good/excellent HOME students to apply for an EPSRC DTP PhD studentship to undertake it. Fully funded for 3 years min (a stipend based on UKRI minima, currently £15,285 pa and Home fees, currently £4,407 pa). To apply click on “Current Studentship Opportunities 2021/22” within: https://www.aston.ac.uk/study/courses/phd-engineering-and-applied-science You need to be classified as a HOME student and include in your application: • A cover letter that names the Supervisor and the project. • Copies of your academic qualifications for your bachelor’s degree, and Master’s degree (if studied); both certificates and transcripts, and translated into English. • A research proposal statement (actually, just detail how your knowledge and experience will benefit the project and accompany it with a brief review of relevant research literature). • Current CV. • 2 academic references (or refereess contact details). Good luck!
