Research Posts

**Imaging Scientist**

Applications are invited for an Imaging Scientist post within the Nanomedicine Laboratory. The scientist will contribute to the conduction and supervision of experimental imaging studies in the Nanomedicine Lab.

You will lead and develop a range of experimental imaging studies, and will develop a programme of research in collaboration with the Principal Investigator and our industrial collaborators.

You will hold a relevant PhD or equivalent, with experience focusing on whole-body, pre-clinical SPECT/CT imaging. You will also have demonstrable previous research experience in nanomaterials and nanotechnology research, previous experience utilising pre-clinical models, and in performing radio-conjugation reactions. You should have excellent communication and presentation skills. Previous experience of PET, MRI or other imaging equipment, experience in training staff or students and a demonstrable publication record in peer reviewed journals would be advantageous.

The post will be tenable on a fixed term basis for 3 years in the first instance.

Deadline for applications is 23rd July 2015


PhD Studentships

**Nanomedicine PhD Studentship, October 2015**
“Development of gold nanoparticles for optical, optoacoustic and x-ray medical imaging”

The objective of this fully-funded 3-year PhD opportunity is to exploit gold-based nanoparticles (Au NPs) to improve the diagnostic potential of biomedical imaging for clinical intervention. The project is co-funded by CIC biomaGUNE, providing full support for PhD tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend at RCUK rates (£14, 057). Funding is available to UK/EU nationals only due to the nature of the award with the PhD due to commence October 2015.
For more information please visit the Faculty’s Studentships website.

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.  

                                                                                                                                      

MRes programme

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.
