PhD in Chemistry – Developing Novel Biosensors with Nanomaterials

University of Glasgow

College of Science and Engineering

Project Description

The project involves the development of novel biosensors using nanomaterials. The project is multidisciplinary and the student will interact with synthetic chemists, physicists and engineers. The project will predominately involve developing and performing novel spectroscopic measurements. The student will also receive training in nanofabrication and computer aided design, transferable skills which are ideally suited to future employment in Hi-Tech industries. There will be opportunities to work in international labs (e.g. Japan and Belgium).
