Loughborough University offers three years Fully Funded PhD studentship in Microfluidic Detection of Bacterial Infections within the Chemical Engineering Department. The successful candidate will have, or expect to gain, a 1st class or high 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant Engineering or Biological field. The studentship starts on 1st October 2015 and provides a tax free stipend of £13863 per annum plus tuition fees at the UK/EU rate. The closing date for applications is 28th February 2015.. PhD Studentship is available in Fighting Infectious Disease: Microfluidic Detection of Bacterial Infections. Infectious disease poses a much larger threat to global health than ever before due to increasing anti-microbial resistance (AMR). To address the multidisciplinary research challenges of the AMR problem, a cross campus Mini-Centre for Doctoral Training (Mini-CDT) in ‘Fighting Infectious Disease’ has been established at Loughborough University. Aligning with the UK AMR Strategy, the Mini-CDT focuses on ‘bridging the gap’ for diagnostic and therapeutic technologies for drug-resistant infections through five multidisciplinary projects, each with a fully funded three-year PhD studentship from the Graduate School starting on 1st October 2015.. Studentship is available for pursuing PhD research programme. The research areas of this scholarship are:
