If you are interested to Join our research team, the following positions are currently available at the Nanomedicine Lab:
Research Associate in Graphene Neuroscience and Neuropathology
This is an opportunity within the Nanomedicine Laboratory at the University of Manchester. The post is available immediately until 31 March 2018.
You will undertake research using graphene-based devices used for stimulation, recording and as therapeutic molecule transport systems to the diseased central (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). Biological and electrophysiological investigations (including cell and tissue analysis using molecular techniques and functional assays) of the implanted devices and nanomaterials using in vitroand in vivo models will be performed.
Please find more information and application form here.
Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Science & Technology (GrapheneNOWNANO)
Graphene NOWNANO is a newly established Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) based on our NOWNANO programme. It builds on the world-leading expertise in the science and technology of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials at Manchester and Lancaster to offer a broad interdisciplinary CDT. PhD students will receive initial state-of-the-art training in the fundamentals of graphene/2D materials, their applications and key techniques. This is followed by a 3½ year research project in 30+ top-rated research groups across 10 disciplines/university departments (Experimental and Theoretical Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Pharmacy, Biomaterials, Medicine, Environment). For more information please visit the Graphene NOWNANO website.
Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine
The University of Manchester has been awarded an EPSRC/MRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) for PhD studentships which offers multidisciplinary training with internationally-leading expertise in bioengineering, stem cells, extracellular matrix, inflammation biology and clinical translation. The CDT in Regenerative Medicine involves more than 50 leading research groups across the Faculties of Life Sciences, Engineering and Physical Sciences, and Medical and Human Sciences. For more information please visit the CDT in Regenerative Medicine website.
Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine (MRes)
The MRes on Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine offered by the Institute of Inflammation and Repair in the Faculty of Medical & Human Sciences is a collaborative degree programme that brings together expertise from the School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Faculty of Life Sciences and School of Material Sciences. It aims at giving the opportunity to young researchers gain experience working on an 1 year research project. The Nanomedicine lab accepts 2 MRes students each academic year. For more details on the programme and application process please visit the MRes website.
