PhD Opportunities - EPSRC CDT lifETIME

The Universities of Glasgow, Birmingham, Aston and Galway have won an EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training - the lifETIME CDT

The CDT is looking for life scientists, engineers, chemists, physicists, mathematicians and clinicians wishing to undertake PhDs to develop new non-animal drug screening technologies such as 3D human cell containing tissues, microfluidic chips, sensing technologies, bioprocessing scale-up technologies, and predictive modelling etc. The CDT is designed to develop a new UK industry in enhanced drug screening to provide better medicines. Successful candidates can choose to study in Universities in Glasgow, Birmingham, Aston or Galway.

PhD Studentship – Tissue Engineered Devices

‌Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a three-years, fully funded, full-time PhD position at the University of Ioannina, Greece. The project is in collaboration with the National University of Ireland Galway (NUI Galway), Galway, Ireland. The successful candidate will spend time in both Universities. The position is available from September 2019 onwards. The project aims to develop tissue engineered implantable devices for wound healing purposes. The produced devices will be characterised using an array of biophysical, biomechanical, biochemical and biological methods. In vitro analysis will be conducted using human permanently differentiated and stem cell populations. Preclinical analysis of the produced devices will also be conducted.
 

To Apply:
Applicants should submit a cover letter outlining their suitability to the post, a detailed CV and the contact details of three referees. The application pack should be emailed to Dr Dimitrios Zeugolis (dimitrios.zeugolis@nuigalway.ie).

Closing date for receipt of applications is 17.00 on Friday, 6th of September 2019.

PhD Studentship – Multifunctional Collagen Biomaterials

‌Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a three-years, fully funded, full-time PhD position at the University of Ioannina, Greece. The project is in collaboration with the National University of Ireland Galway (NUI Galway), Galway, Ireland. The successful candidate will spend time in both Universities. The position is available from September 2019 onwards. The project aims to develop multifunctional collagen-based implantable devices for wound healing purposes. The produced scaffolds will be characterised using an array of biochemical, biophysical, biomechanical and biological methods. The release profile / pharmacokinetics of various therapeutic / bioactive molecules will be assessed. Extensive in vitro analysis will be conducted using human permanently differentiated and stem cell populations. Preclinical analysis of the produced scaffolds will also be conducted. 
 

To Apply: Applicants should submit a cover letter outlining their suitability to the post, a detailed CV and the contact details of three referees. The application pack should be emailed to Dr Dimitrios Zeugolis (dimitrios.zeugolis@nuigalway.ie).

PhD Fellowship - TBMED

‌The Centre for Research in Medical Devices (CÚRAM) is a national, SFI funded, €49.6m research centre that brings together researchers from NUI Galway, University College Dublin, Dublin City University, University of Limerick, University College Cork, Trinity College Dublin and Royal College of Surgeons Ireland. The prime objective for CÚRAM is to radically improve health outcomes for patients by developing innovative implantable ‘smart’ medical devices to treat major unmet medical needs. Implants will be designed and manufactured to respond to the body’s environment and to deliver therapeutic agents, such as drugs, exactly where needed. Cutting-edge science will develop devices using the very latest research from biomaterials, stem cells and drug delivery and the support of strong clinical collaborations, industry partners and hospital groups to enable rapid translation to the clinic. The centre will include almost 40 industry partners and support.
