    Are you interested in researching within a multidisciplinary project to develop a novel polymer waveguide biosensor capable of single biomolecule detection for very early, rapid and low cost detection of pathogens behind COVID19, Avian Influenza and may other illnesses? Aston Institute of Photonics is hiring! You would work alongside myself, Dr Kaiming Zhou and Professor David Webb (all AIPT – the world renown Aston Institute for Photonic Technologies), and in collaboration with colleagues in EBRI (Dr Alfred Fernández-Castané), LHS (Prof. Anna Hine) and EPS (Dr Thomas Thatapudi), and leading academic and industrial collaborators outside of Aston University to use a novel detection scheme that will actually capitalize on the high thermal sensitivity of polymers, which for many applications is problematic, to eliminate for the first time all of their inherent low-frequency (DC) related noise and drift issues in a polymer waveguide based biosensor.

Each studentship covers full UK PhD tuition fees and a tax-free maintenance allowance for 3 years. Only limited funding is available for international candidates who will need to cover the difference between the ‘Home’ and the ‘Overseas’ tuition fees and confirm that you have applied for, or secured, this additional funding. Closing Date: 31st January 2022

    If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.
